Acupuncture is a safe and effective therapy for many ailments and is one of the oldest natural healing therapies, having been practiced for thousands of years since its development in China.
Acupuncture is a unique therapeutic method involving the insertion of extremely thin steel acupuncture needles into acu-points along the meridians to prevent and treat a variety of ailments. Treatment without the use of needles is optional! Treatment may include acupressure, Tuina massage or tool-assisted Gua Sha soft-tissue release, moxibustion, herbal and dietary supplements, and cupping. The effectiveness of acupuncture has been recognized by the World Health Organization of the United Nations (WHO) with the identification of over 40 medical conditions that can be successfully treated with acupuncture. Acupuncture is a regulated health profession governed by the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Providers and Acupuncturists of Ontario. Anatomica Massage Therapy and Chiropractic in Toronto hires only Registered Acupuncturists who are in good standing with the CTCMPAO who follow the strictest sanitation and safe-handling procedures.
