Acupuncture is a treatment used in traditional Chinese medicine and is part of the Naturopathic scope of practice. This ancient practice accesses points along channels of the body to improve circulation, decrease inflammation, promote wound healing and the flow of energy. This can be helpful in patients with conditions such as joint pain, poor digestion, nausea, weight gain, constipation, recovery from injuries.
Further, trigger point therapies use acupuncture needles to release tight and painful muscles. While cupping therapy uses heated glass cups to create a suction effect that mimics a deep tissue relaxation massage that is complementary to many other musculoskeletal treatments.
CHC offers patients who have been prescribed a number of acupuncture or cupping sessions, bundled packages for their treatments.
**Please note in these sessions we are unable to prescribe new treatments and would refer you to the Follow up appointment.
