Therapeutic Acupuncture in Ottawa

As a form of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture has been used for thousands of years. It involves inserting very fine, sterile needles into specific points of the body, believed to help balance the flow of energy through pathways in your body. These points are places where nerves, muscles and connective tissue can be stimulated and encourage the body to release endorphins, our pain-relieving chemicals.

Acupuncture can be used to safely treat a variety of disorders and conditions, including lower back pain, migraines, arthritis, tendonitis, and fibromyalgia. It’s also been shown to reduce pro-inflammatory markers in your body, decreasing pain from inflammation.

Our acupuncture therapy is often recommended as part of your overall therapeutic treatment program, or can be booked as a standalone session all its own. Contact us today to book your next acupuncture treatment in Ottawa!

How Does
Acupuncture Work?

The human body is believed to have a series of acupuncture points which can stimulate the central nervous system. The physical stimulation of need insertion into these acupuncture points helps release chemicals into the muscles, spinal cord, and brain.

The biochemical changes that result from stimulating the acupuncture points can influence the body's healing abilities to promote a wide variety of pleasant physical and emotional changes. During an acupuncture treatment, a trained therapist or acupuncturist will insert needles at various depths in specific locations of the body - each acupuncture point providing a different effect on the body and mind. The needles will typically stay in for a few minutes, and can also stay in for up to 20 minutes or more.

Types of Acupuncture
Treatments We Offer

Traditional acupuncture is the practice of inserting fine needles (as fine as a human hair) into points in the body called acupuncture points. In traditional Chinese medicine, these acupuncture points are believed to allow energy, called qi (chee), to flow. Different acupuncture points have different functions, and the needles that are inserted in these points treat specific conditions, rebalance your body’s energy flow, and reduce inflammation and pain.

Traditional acupuncture provides best results when performed by a registered acupuncturist (RAc), or fully trained health care providers like physiotherapists and chiropractors.

Acupuncture FAQs

Acupuncture is not only one of the safest treatment methods available, but it has the least amount of adverse effects. Most patients actually find acupuncture treatments quite relaxing and report little to no discomfort.

We only use sterile needles, and dispose of them after use. Our therapists are registered acupuncturists (RAC), who must have 3-4 years of accredited training followed by an extensive internship and an exam. Medical physicians, like chiropractors and physiotherapists, also receive extensive training in how the body works, and are qualified to perform acupuncture safely.
