Treatments

Acupuncture ... 
is based on the traditional Chinese theory of meridians (energy pathways that are believed to run through the body), which carry the vital force of energy called chi. In this therapy the flow of chi is controlled by the insertion of hair-thin needles at specific points. The procedure usually causes mild pain or discomfort, although often there may be tingling or heavy sensation.

The ability of acupuncture to relieve pain in many patients is well documented, and the physical basis of the pain relief has been demonstrated through laboratory tests. Acupuncture releases endorphins and other forms of neurotransmitters that serve as the body's natural painkillers. Along side its pain controlling benefits, acupuncture has been found effective in the prevention of illnesses when regularly applied as a form of maintanence. The benefits from consistent acupuncture treatments is far ranging. There is also a strong possibility that your medical condition will improve from these treatments. 

Acupuncture is a regulated profession in Ontario as of the 1st of April, 2013. Most insurance companies are providing coverage under their benefit plan. Check with your provider for eligibility.
