Acupuncture Therapy in Brampton
In acupuncture (a form of traditional Chinese medicine), sterilized needles are inserted under the skin at certain places (acu-pressure points) to promote faster healing. There are different sizes and materials of needles. Acupuncture, a major component of TCM, is used to alleviate discomfort, stress, and overall health.
It is becoming more and more popular in Canada. Acupuncture regulates the body's QI. Our acupuncturists believe that by manipulating these energy channels (meridians), they can restore energy flow to its normal state.
This ancient Chinese medicine is found effective in helping relieve many chronic pain conditions including fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. Using thin metallic needles to repeatedly penetrate the skin, we help to correct imbalances of flow at points close to the skin and in the process, relieve your pain and stiffness.

If administered properly, acupuncture has the potential to provide major health benefits. Minor adverse effects are to be expected. It works well when paired with other therapies.
Who should not get acupuncture therapy?
There are little hazards associated with acupuncture if it is performed by a trained professional who takes precautions – using disposable needles & has experience. Pain, minimal bleeding, and bruising at the injection site are typical adverse reactions. Infection is currently rare due to the widespread use of disposable needles. Unfortunately, not everyone can benefit from acupuncture.

Your expectation, our commitment
Our expert acupuncturist will perform a thorough physical examination, make a diagnosis, and then offer treatment recommendations. For each patient, the acupuncturist should use a new, sterilized needle. The insertion of a needle may cause a temporary tingling sensation. After that, you can feel a dull soreness.
In most cases, the needles will be left in place for 15-60 minutes. Individual cases will vary in terms of the number of treatments required. Usually, 8 sessions are enough to remedy a short-term health problem. One should consult their primary care physician before deciding to try acupuncture as a treatment for chronic pain or any other disease.
