Targeting specific points along meridian pathways defined by the ancient Chinese, this modality of treatment uses needles, which influence pain and tissue healing in the body. For more information visit Acupuncture Foundation Institute of Canada:   www.acupuncturecanada.org

You may be interested in acupuncture for a variety of reasons — for example, I sought treatment for my chronic headaches and sinus pressure — as there are countless conditions and symptoms that acupuncture has been said to help with. Here are just some of the many claims:

  • allergies

  • anxiety and depression

  • chronic pain, often in the neck, back, knees, and head

  • hypertension

  • insomnia

  • menstrual cramps and PMS

  • migraines

  • morning sickness

  • sprains

  • strokes


Some studies even suggest that acupuncture can help with cancer treatment and multiple sclerosis, however research for these conditions is limited and requires larger studies to confirm the benefits.
