Traditional Acupuncture

What is Traditional Acupuncture?

Traditional acupuncture is rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine and has been practiced for thousands of years. It is based on the concept of balancing the flow of vital energy or “qi” (pronounced “chee”) through the body’s meridians or energy channels.

Traditional Acupuncture at First Care Centre involves the insertion of thin, sterile needles into specific points along your body that follow these energy channels. Our goal is to help restore balance of your qi and promote healing.
