Acupuncture is one of the many branches of Traditional Chinese Medicine- it dates back over 3000 years. Acupuncture is the insertion of very fine needles into specific points along the course of the meridians. Acupuncture is used to restore the normal balance and flow of Qi (chee) so organs and bodily systems can work together in harmony as intended. Acupuncture and Oriental medicine identify the root-cause of the problem, and facilitates your body to self-heal, or make the necessary adjustments on its own, without the use of drugs or surgery.

Laser Acupuncture

Laser acupuncture uses the same principles as traditional acupuncture, but instead of using needles, the acupuncturist uses a laser beam in order to stimulate the points. The laser provides infra-red light, pressure and electromagnetic waves that stimulate the body. Laser acupuncture is painless, effective and less time consuming procedure than traditional acupuncture treatment.

FAQ:

Q: How does Acupuncture work?

A: Acupuncture uses the insertion of hair thin needles to specific points on the body along the energy channels, or meridians.

Q:What are meridians?

A: Meridians form a highly complex invisible network that transports Qi to every cell, tissue, and organ of the body.

Q: What is Qi and what does it do?

A: Qi (chee) translates to mean energy, and though Qi is invisible, its presence becomes especially apparent in the workings of the bodily organs and systems, which require this energy to heal and regenerate. The Chinese view Qi not only as a powering function, they see it as inseparable from function as there is no Qi without function, and no function without Qi.

Q:Are acupuncture needles sterile and safe?

A: Yes. The government requires acupuncturists to follow very strict sterilization procedures. In most cases, disposable one-time use needles are used.

Q: will treatments be covered by my insurance?

A: Yes. Acupuncture treatments are covered by most extended health benefits, auto insurance and private insurance companies.

Q: Are there any contraindications for acupuncture?

A: There are very few situations where acupuncture is not advised. These are the most common:

  • If the patient has a haemophilic condition or is on anti-coagulant drugs
  • If the patient is pregnant - certain acupuncture points and needle manipulations should not be used during pregnancy
  • If the patient has a severe psychotic condition or is under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • If the patient has a fear of needles
