Acupuncture is an ancient healing art, with a documented history of over 2000 years. It is based on Chinese Medicine concepts that describe illness as disharmony in the body.
The naturopath uses case history and physical findings as an assessment tool. Placement of needles in strategic areas is used to alleviate and correct any imbalances.
According to WHO (World Health Organization) this form of holistic treatment is effective for treating various conditions. Acupuncture can help alleviate muscles tension and joint pain. People with headaches and/or migraines often seek acupuncture as it can be very effective in alleviating the symptoms. There is also a great deal of clinical evidence supporting it’s use for hormonal imbalances like: promoting fertility, regulating menstrual cycles and alleviating symptoms of menopause.
