Acupuncture Toronto

The art and science of acupuncture toronto has been in practice for over 5000 years throughout Asia and Europe. It involves the insertion of hair-thin needles along 12 different meridian channels throughout the body. The mechanism of acupuncture seems to stimulate or enhance the body’s own healing processes by interacting with the nervous system. In turn, it produces effects including increased circulation, decreased muscle tension, pain reduction and decreased inflammation. Modern research has supported these findings and endorses the use of acupuncture toronto for pain management, digestive conditions, hormonal imbalances and certain psychological conditions.

Biomedical Acupuncture toronto

Biomedical Acupuncture Toronto is a method of treatment used as an adjunct to standard chiropractic therapy. Its primary goal is to reduce pain and inflammation in physical injuries or conditions affecting the body. This may include neck pain, back pain, headaches, tendonitis, arthritis as well as common athletic injuries such as sprains and strains. Acupuncture needles are inserted primarily over the area of injury. The foundation of biomedical acupuncture is based on anatomical structures, with emphasis on restoring normal function to the body's muscles, joints and bones.

Traditional Chinese Medicine Toronto

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a unique system of medical diagnosis and treatment which is used in adjunct to naturopathic care. The intent is to bring harmony to the body through the balance of yin and yang and the regulation of “qi” (vital energy traversing the body). The fundamental concepts of TCM revolve around the perceived roles of various organ systems and their interconnected relationships. As each organ has a corresponding meridian running throughout the body, these systems can be manipulated through acupuncture, diet, and Chinese herbs. TCM has proven especially useful in treating systemic illnesses such as fibromyalgia, digestive issues, stress and anxiety, hormonal disturbances, as well as the enhancement of fertility and smoking cessation protocols.
