What is acupuncture?
Over 5,000 years old, acupuncture is one of the branches of traditional Chinese medicine, based on the implantation and manipulation of fine needles at various points on the body for therapeutic purposes. Traditional acupuncture is based on pre-scientific and vitalist concepts, elaborating its diagnostic and therapeutic reasoning on a Taoist energetic vision of man and the universe.
Duly trained and experienced, our acupuncturists are members of the Ordre des acupuncteurs du Québec. After a thorough evaluation, the acupuncturist will insert fine sterile needles and leave them to work for up to 40 minutes, depending on the treatment.
The acupuncturist can help your body's various systems return to full function. Treatments are pain-free and carried out in accordance with ancient acupuncture techniques.
