Acupuncture Therapy Treatment, Milton, Ontario
Acupuncture therapy treatment is a 2,000-year-old Chinese treatment in which fine needles are inserted into specific points on the body. The World Health Organization (WHO) lists approximately four-dozen different conditions that can legitimately be treated by acupuncture. In 1999, the WHO published a document with guidelines for acupuncture therapy treatment training and safety in which they recommended 200 hours of formal training. Dr. Anna Neff, lead practitioner at True Health Chiropractic has received 300 hours of training at McMaster University through the Department of Anaesthesia.
