Vancouver Acupuncture

Acupuncture is the insertion of very fine needles on the body's surface, used to influence physiological functioning of the body in a very safe, painless and effective way.  It strengthens and improves overall functions, enhances immunity and enables you to regain physical and emotional health.  Vancouver Acupuncture produces results by re-establishing balance and ensuring the continuous flow of vital life energy, called Qi (pronounced "chee").

How does Vancouver Acupuncture work?

The Naturopath will place fine, sterile needles at specific points along the pathways of a person's body. The insertion of the needles unblocks the damming or obstruction of the body's pathways.  This unblocking allows the Qi to freely circulate, which eliminates pain and gives the body the ability to once gain heal itself.

Cosmetic Acupuncture, also known as Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture, is a non-surgical face-lift that has been shown to be effective in reducing the signs of aging. This is achieved with both facial treatment and by treating the underlying causes of why an individual is aging a certain way.
