A key component of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture uses needles, which are inserted into specific points on the body or meridians to help treat pain, manage stress, and rebalance energy flow.
Our acupuncture treatments
Re-balance energy, eliminate stress, and treat pain
At DNA Health, we are increasingly using acupuncture in our treatment protocols for overall wellness. Our practitioners have been carefully selected based on their extensive experience, credentials, trust, positive outcomes, and ability to understand the body as a whole.
What to expect from an acupuncture session
Our approach is unique as we blend aspects of Eastern and Western practices. To determine the type of acupuncture treatment that will help you the most, we ask you about your symptoms, behaviours and lifestyle and examine:
During the treatment, your acupuncturist inserts very thin needles into specific spots on your body.
The parts of your body that are painful
The shape, coating and colour of your tongue
The colour of your face
The strength, rhythm, and quality of the pulse in your wrist
This initial evaluation and treatment may take up to 60 minutes. Subsequent appointments usually take about a half-hour. A common treatment plan for a single complaint would typically involve one or two treatments a week. The number of treatments will depend on the condition being treated and its severity. In general, it’s common to receive six to eight treatments.
