Our Naturopathic physician Dr. Samantha Guthrie, blends acupuncture and Chinese herbal therapy into her naturopathic care regimens to help address the root cause of pain and disease from another lens.
Acupuncture is an art that relies on the wisdom of traditional Chinese medicine to identify patterns that are causing imbalance. It involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific acupuncture points to encourage balance and to support the body’s innate power to heal itself.
Acupuncture retrains the nervous system by releasing chemicals that affect pain locally as well as systemic processes affected by hormones in muscles, spinal cord, and brain. This changes the way your body experiences symptoms like pain, anxiety, headaches, allergies, or menstrual irregularities.
