"Better to light a candle then curse the darkness" ~ Chinese proverb
Acupuncture originates from ancient China and has been practiced throughout the world for over 2500 years. It is a safe treatment that involves the insertion of very fine sterile needles into specific points throughout the body. In Chinese medicine we say that these needles help to 'activate' or 'move Qi' throughout the body. In western medicine we believe theses points help to stimulate blood circulation, lymphatic circulation, and release triggers points.
At PNC acupuncture treatments are administered by our board certified naturopaths and our licensed acupuncturist. Acupuncture treatments are covered by most extended health plans.

Cosmetic Acupuncture, is a safe, non-surgical and non-toxic alternative anti-aging therapy that works on both men and women.
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, any internal imbalances will create disharmony among organs, which are often found reflected on the face. Cosmetic Acupuncture works by restoring those imbalances, such as qi, blood and hormones, while reviving and rejuvenating the skin to achieve a healthy, youthful appearance.
