Acupuncture is a tradition of medicine that has been practiced for over 5000 years. Traditional therapies are fused with modern science to create a form of medicine that provides balance to the body's systems.
Used to stimulate the organ systems, Acupuncture is a successful method of treatment for a variety of health problems including pain, hormonal imbalances, infertility and digestive issues.
With infertility, Acupuncture treatments have been shown to be effective in addressing hormonal imbalances and conception difficulties in both men and women, as well as being helpful in enhancing and supporting conventional fertility treatments such as intrauterine insemination (IUI) and in vitro fertilization (IVF).
Acupuncture can also be a complimentary therapy in pregnancy to prepare the body for natural birth as well as help to ease nausea and reduce the frequency or intensity of back pain and headaches.

For breech babies identified before labour begins, Acupuncture has been shown that it can be successful in turning a breech through a technique specifically known as moxibustion.
Acupuncture is covered by many health insurance carriers. Coverage needs to be submitted and confirmed by the patient.
