Traditional Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture

Acupuncture focuses on balancing the body’s energy or Qi (“chee”). With tiny needles, our Naturopathic Doctors can affect the movement of energy to balance the disharmony.

Acupuncture can be used in conjunction with other therapies without any adverse side effects. It has been proven to help with post-operative healing times & stimulate repair from injury. Acupuncture can also be used to optimize health by increasing the immune system, boosting energy, improving mood & sleep, and more!

Acupuncture can help with (but not limited to) muscle/joint pain/injury/tension, sinus congestion, headaches, digestive problems, hypertension, insomnia, and anxiety. It is used extensively for female issues & is used to treat conditions such as infertility, PMS & menstrual problems, symptoms of pregnancy as well as labour preparation or induction.

Dr. Lauren always makes me feel very comfortable, and that I’m being heard. She is thorough, and never rushes you. It’s clear that she cares just as much about the health of her patients as the patients themselves do.
