Ottawa Acupuncture Treatments
Many people wonder what is acupuncture. What does acupuncture treat? Acupuncture is an alternative form of medicine that has been used for thousands of years and involves inserting very fine, sterile needles into certain points throughout the body, based on the Chinese energy pathways. Acupuncture improves the body’s functions and promotes the natural self-healing process by stimulating specific anatomic sites–commonly referred to as acupuncture points, or acupoints. This stimulation encourages the body to release endorphins, our body’s own pain-relieving chemicals. It has also been shown to reduce pro-inflammatory markers in your body, decreasing inflammation and reducing pain. Acupuncture is extremely effective in the treatment of a variety of painful disorders and a variety of other conditions. At EWC, we take our time assessing and treating our clients for them to achieve the best results possible and walk out feeling brand new. Acupuncture in Ottawa never felt so good!
