According to William Michael Cargile, B.S., D.C., F.I.A.C.A., Chairman of Research for the American Association of Acupuncture and Oriental medicine, there are over a thousand acupoints within the meridian system that can be stimulated to enhance the flow of qi. When special needles are inserted into these acupoints (just under the skin), they help correct and re balance the flow of energy and consequently relieve pain and/or restore health.
Acupuncture has been a regulated profession in Ontario since 2012.
