Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and acupuncture has been used
in parts of Asia for over 2500 years, and continues to be mainstream
medicine for over 1 billion people. This ancient form of healing has
been modernized in the last 200 hundred years and, even more recently,
is being integrated into Western medical practices. Its ability to manage
pain from musculoskeletal injury or imbalance has been clearly
demonstrated, and its complementary application to many other
conditions has been repeatedly demonstrated in clinical practice.
Acupuncture needles can stimulate blood flow and the nervous
system where they are placed. According to TCM theory, the goal of
acupuncture is to balance ‘life energy’ or ‘Qi’ that courses through the
body along different channels called meridians.
As part of their education, naturopathic doctors are trained to safely and effectively use acupuncture as one of their tools to improve your health.
Consult your naturopathic doctor to see if this therapy should be a part of your course of treatment.
