What is Acupuncture? Acupuncture is a method of encouraging the body to promote natural healing and to improve functioning by stimulating the flow of “Qi” (pronounced chee). Qi can be influenced and balanced by stimulating specific points on the body. This is done by inserting needles and applying heat or electrical stimulation at very precise acupuncture points.
What to Expect: A certified acupuncturist recognized by a provincial health regulatory body will arrive at your home or office with everything needed to perform an acupuncture treatment.

HOW ACUPUNCTURE WORKS:
The philosophies of how acupuncture actually works are many. There are scientific views and esoteric views. The modern scientific explanation is that needling the acupuncture points stimulates the nervous system to release chemicals in the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. These chemicals will either change the experience of pain, or they will trigger the release of other chemicals and hormones which influence the body’s own internal regulating system.
