Overview of acupuncture

Traditional acupuncture is a healthcare system based on ancient principles which go back nearly two thousand years. It has a very positive model of good health and function, and looks at pain and illness as signs that the body is out of balance. The overall aim of acupuncture treatment, then, is to restore the body's equilibrium.

Benefits of acupuncture

  • It can relieve pain

  • It can buffer the effects of chronic stress

  • It can reduce anxiety

  • It can relieve the symptoms of depression

  • It could help guard against diabetes

  • It may promote fertility

  • It could improve your memory

What to expect

Each person who performs acupuncture has a unique style, often blending aspects of Eastern and Western approaches to medicine. To determine the type of acupuncture treatment that will help you the most, your practitioner may ask you about your symptoms, behaviours and lifestyle. He or she may also closely examine:

  • The parts of your body that are painful

  • The shape, coating and colour of your tongue

  • The colour of your face

  • The strength, rhythm and quality of the pulse in your wrist

This initial evaluation and treatment may take up to 60 minutes.
