Acupuncture is based on traditional Chinese medicine and involves the insertion of fine needles into the body at specific points. Fine needles are inserted into a series of connected pathways or “meridians,” known as specific points in the body. Used as a therapeutic remedy, these points create a healing impulse to reduce or relive pain, encourage energy flow and natural healing.
At Humber Family Chiropractic, Rehabilitation & Wellness Centre, acupuncture treatments are used as a holistic and therapeutic approach to alleviate stress and pain. Each patient’s needs are addressed individually to restore the proper flow of energy and good health. Many patients find acupuncture treatments very relaxing.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) includes a variety of practices, herbal formulas, massage therapies and lifestyle counselling in order to achieve harmony and balance in health. Used as a holistic treatment and complimentary to Western medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine is based on the concept that energy flows through pathways or meridians. Symptoms recognized in the body’s language, including blocked pathways, lead to illness, physical and/or emotional disorders. Our TCM practitioners use tongue and pulse diagnosis to help identify the blocked pathways.
