Naturopathic medicine is a distinct primary health care profession, emphasizing prevention, treatment, and optimal health through the use of therapeutic methods and substances that encourage individuals’ inherent self-healing process. The practice of naturopathic medicine includes modern and traditional, scientific, and empirical methods.

Acupuncture has been around for over 3000 years. It involves the insertion of very thin needles into specific points in the body in order to restore balance, improve circulation, and relieve pain. Acupuncture is an effective treatment for a wide variety of pain conditions and injuries. It is also an effective treatment for non-pain related conditions such as: fertility issues, anxiety, depression, smoking cessation, digestive complaints, insomnia, etc.
