Naturopathic Acupuncture Treatments
Acupuncture has been a trusted natural treatment method for thousands of years, and is a strong complement to a naturopathic treatment plan. Naturopathic doctors are also licensed acupuncture practitioners, with many doctors incorporating it into their practice.
In addition to her naturopathy services, naturopathic doctor Dr. Tara Andresen provides acupuncture treatments at her Toronto naturopathic clinic. She is a skilled acupuncturist, who is dedicated to providing the most effective, pain-free treatment possible. Dr. Andresen uses only ultra-thin needles to maximize comfort and give her patients a positive acupuncture experience. Treatments typically last approximately 30-45 minutes.
Acupuncture is a safe and effective way to treat many medical conditions. Dr. Andresen may recommend acupuncture to help treat the following conditions:
- Menstrual problems
- Irritable bowel syndrome and digestive concerns
- Stress management
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Smoking cessation
- Fertility concerns
- Many more
Dr. Andresen also administers the Myofascial Acupuncture Technique – an extremely effective acupuncture technique used to treat muscle pain. Myofascial release acupuncture may be used for back, shoulder, neck, knee, wrist, foot and jaw pain.
