What are the Benefits of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine?

Oriental medicine is a holistic approach, which is based on the treatment of all bodily systems. Acupuncture benefits both physical health conditions as well as mood disorders. Acupuncture works directly with the body’s energy or Qi. Acupuncture practitioners believe that all illness is a result of the natural flow of energy through the body becoming stuck, depleted or weakened and thus making the individual susceptible to illness. Acupuncture benefits the rebalance of Qi through treatment of specific acupoints related to symptoms or illness present. Treatment is effective in removing these energy obstructions.

Through clinical trials, acupuncture has been proven effective in treating various medical conditions and its use has been expanded into conventional medicine practices. Acupuncture benefits a wide variety of disorders. Our acupuncturist Sophie see’s patients for all of the following conditions:

Patient Testimonials

"My doctor recently moved to this clinic and I’m so happy that she did! The receptionists are great, the nurse is so caring and sweet, and the design of the office is relaxing and clean. And of course, Dr. Mackie is amazing."

Elizabeth Goldstone

"Dr. Gates Manhas is my primary care physician and she's the best doctor I've ever had. She is a compassionate listener and she always does a fantastic job of walking me through her thought process of a diagnosis, and always offers great advice and clear explanation of treatment options/testing. Can't recommend her enough!"

Katie De Sousa

"We’ve been patients of Dr. Amritpaul Manhas for almost 2 years. He’s so caring, what a rare thing is to find a doctor that listens. His colleagues are the exact same way. The clinic is big, well equipped, and everything works well. Manhas Medical has been my best medical experience since moving to Canada in 2014. I really appreciate you all and I’m grateful to have found you, Dr. Paul."
