Acupuncturists in Burlington, Ontario

Chinese acupuncture is an ancient form of alternative medicine that sees ultra-fine needles being inserted in specific points to control energy flow in the body. Acupuncturists aim to manipulate the energy, designated as “qi”, so that it’s able to travel freely throughout channels in the body called meridians.

What is acupuncture?

Over thousands of years, acupuncture has been used to treat an impressive range of disorders in the body. Acupuncture is generally considered safe when used with standard precautions.

Maneuvering the flow of qi is believed to encourage the body’s natural healing process and is used to treat an impressive range of disorders in the body. Modern acupuncture uses sterile, single use stainless-steel needles. Practitioners know where the acupuncture points in the body are, and by extension, where pools of qi are stored. By inserting needles into specific points along your meridians, it is thought that your body’s energy flow will rebalance, and harmony will be restored.


Fire Cupping involves creating a vacuum in a small glass bulb (the “cup”), which is then applied to the body to increase blood flow and circulation. A tiny flame creates the vacuum by burning the air in the cup. After the cup is quickly placed on the skin, the vacuum in the cup applies a suction to the skin. The practitioner can leave the cup in place or move it along the body to create a “massaging” sensation.
