Acupuncture aims to restore and maintain health through the stimulation of specific points on the body. Acupuncture may be effective in treating many different types of conditions with successful results.
Note that a licence to practise is required from the appropriate governing bodies in the provinces of Alberta, British Columbia and Quebec. In the province of Ontario, the practice of acupuncture is now regulated by the Traditional Chinese Medicine Act, 2006, S.o. 2006, chapter 27.
