Acupuncture is a form of alternative medicine that is quickly gaining popularity in Canada. This increase in recognition is due the fact that acupuncture works. It is a form of treatment that mainly deals with pain relief, strengthening the immune system, and managing stress, eliminating sleeping disorders, and many other conditions.
Although modern medicine continues to develop treatments, old procedures are slowly returning to prominence as more people begin to see their benefits to overall health. Despite having relatively few studies to assess alternative medicine, unorthodox procedures like acupuncture have treated many patients in Canada, in unique facilities distinct from common health centers.
