Acupuncture is an ancient form of Chinese medicine involving the insertion of solid filiform acupuncture needles into the skin at specific points on the body to achieve a therapeutic effect. No drug is injected. The needles alone create the beneficial effects of acupuncture.
Acupuncture is used to encourage natural healing, improve mood and energy, reduce or relieve pain and improve function of affected areas of the body. It is safe and effective and is often successfully used as an alternative to medications or even surgery. Relief is often obtained with acupuncture when traditional medical therapy has failed.
Don Valley Health & Wellness – Physiotherapy & Sports Rehabilitation Centre, located on the corner of Pape and Danforth, next to Withrow Park, provides acupuncture to those in the Danforth Village, Riverdale and East York areas.
