Medical Acupuncture applies the evidence-based concepts of acupuncture to relieve pain, alter movement patterns and improve overall function. Our medical acupuncture providers completed the Contemporary Medical Acupuncture program at McMaster University which focuses the science based application of acupuncture.
Contrary to popular belief, acupuncture treatment has been very well studied in both eastern and western scientific literature. The scientifically proven benefits of acupuncture include pain relief, inflammation reduction, improved blood flow, stress reduction, improved nerve conduction, addiction control, as well as improved organ function.
