Our naturopathic doctors perform acupuncture treatments at the Optimum Wellness Integrated Clinic. During your first office visit, they may ask you at length about your health condition, symptoms, lifestyle, and behaviour. The will want to obtain a complete picture of your treatment needs and behaviours that may contribute to your condition. The Naturopathic doctor will also ask you about all treatments or medications you are taking and all medical conditions you have.
Acupuncture needles are metallic, solid, and hair-thin. People experience acupuncture differently, but most feel no or minimal pain as the needles are inserted. Placement and movement of the patient can cause soreness and pain during treatment.
This is why it is important to seek treatment from a qualified acupuncture practitioner. Treatment may take place over a period of several weeks or more. All New Patients are Welcome. We operate a full Naturopathic medical practice where patients benefit from the use of Naturopathic therapies that create a healthy environment in which the body can heal itself. Prevention, detoxification, education and self responsibility are the cornerstones of our Naturopathic philosophy. Please be aware that individual responses to treatments may vary and results are not guaranteed. Speak with your naturopathic doctor about the appropriate treatment plan for your case and whether acupuncture may be a benefit to you.
