Our integrative medicine techniques include acupuncture, laser therapy and Chinese herbs.

Acupuncture involves the insertion of sterile needles into specific acupuncture points (acupoints) on the body, to induce a therapeutic effect.

Scientific Evidence

Scientific research shows that acupoints are located in areas on the body where there's a high density of free nerve endings, small blood vessels, lymph ducts and mast cells. Stimulation of the acupoints induces the release of serotonin, beta-endorphins and other neurotransmitters. Scientific research articles can be found here.

What is Qi? What are the Channels?

Qi is known as energy or life force. It comes in two forms: Yin and Yang. Qi constantly flows throughout the body, maintaining a balance of Yin and Yang. When the flow of Qi is disrupted, disease and/or pain may occur. Acupuncture helps to resolve the flow of Qi enabling the body to self-heal.

Channels, also known as Meridians, make up a network that allows Qi to flow throughout the body. Many acupuncture points are located on these channels.
