One of the tools I am privileged to include in my physiotherapy treatment toolbox is acupuncture. Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medical practice believed to stimulate Qi in the body to bring balance to body systems. It is a fundamental part of Traditional Chinese Medicine and takes many years of study with expert practitioners to perfect. The method of acupuncture application that I became certified to use is called Anatomical Acupuncture through the Acupuncture Foundation of Canada Institute. This means that sometimes I use needles to achieve things in your body like pain relief without medications and muscle relaxation. I only do this when indicated, when safe and if you have given your express consent. I will ask for your consent every time I think I might like to use acupuncture.
