Acupuncture

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture involves inserting very fine needles into points along the meridian (a pathway on the body where energy flows). This stimulates nerve branches, which improves blood circulation and has a positive effect on the body’s organs, brain function, digestive system, respiratory function, cardiovascular function, hormones, etc. in order to restore the human body to balance and harmony, thus, healing the injury and/or illness.

Our Acupuncturist, Frederic Cheung, R.TCMP., R. AC., is an active member of the Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture Association of Canada. Frederic is also part of a team that was elected as the 2019 Consumer Choice Award recipient in the category of Acupuncture – DURHAM REGION.

How do you know what to fix?

In order to discover the root of the imbalance, Chinese medicine uses a four step procedure in examination. They are observation, listening/smelling, inquiry, and palpation. Based on the finding, the practitioner will then be able to prescribe the proper treatment to correct the imbalance.

Is it painful?

Certain sensations are expected such as tingling, numbness, and pressure. This is called “de qi” (arrival of energy). Otherwise it is not painful at all.

Are there any side effects?

No. It is normal to feel a ‘good tiredness’ (relaxed) feeling after the session. The energy flows best when the body is not stressed out.
