Acupuncture is an ancient way of healing that involves the insertion of very fine, sterile, disposable needles into various points on the body. Acupuncturists do this to influence the flow of energy, stimulate the body’s healing response, and restore normal functions of the body.
Today, acupuncture is receiving wide acceptance as a respected, valid, and effective form of health care because of one fact- it works!
At Okanagan Acupuncture Centre, our practitioners are CTCMA-licensed Registered Acupuncturists and are highly trained in acupuncture and in the diagnosis and treatment of complex health concerns using the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). They are knowledgeable and qualified to perform safe and effective acupuncture treatments.
Acupuncture can effectively treat almost any condition in the body. At Okanagan Acupuncture Centre, we treat a wide variety of health problems, including:
•acute pain and injuries
•carpal tunnel syndrome
•immune system disorders
We only use sterile, disposable acupuncture needles. Needles are individually wrapped and sterilized by the manufacturer. They are opened only when they are ready to be used, and afterwards, each needle is disposed of in a medical waste container. Needles are never re-used.
