Acupuncture in Thornhill

Originating in China more than 3,000 years ago, acupuncture is one of the oldest Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) procedures. As an essential part of TCM, acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin, metallic needles, (sometimes in conjunction with electrical stimulus), on some specific points (acupuncture points or acupoints) of the body’s surface. The extreme thinness of the needles ensures that little or no discomfort will be experienced during the treatment. At medical level, the insertion of these very fine needles on the acupoints influences the physiological functions of the body, and restores the health.

At PhysioCore, our therapist may use acupuncture solely to treat your problem or use it as part of another treatment to enhance the effects of treatment (whichever is more comfortable and/or beneficial for the individual). We use a form of electro-acupuncture to mainly treat problems related to soft tissues, joints and the nervous system.
