Our therapists have been trained in Anatomical acupuncture by the Acupuncture Foundation of Canada Institute. Acupuncture stimulates the body to produce its own pain relieving chemicals called endorphins. Endorphins help to block pain pathways, resulting in relief of pain and relaxation. Acupuncture also stimulates your body's own anti-inflammatory systems and healing. Acupuncture needles are extremely fine and most patients experience little or no discomfort. Your therapist may include acupuncture as part of your individual treatment plan. There is no additional cost for this treatment.
