One of our favourite treatments that we are proud to offer at Epione Health is acupuncture.

Acupuncture can be effective for many types of health concerns, including fatigue, digestive symptoms, women’s health issues, headaches, anxiety, insomnia, muscle tension, and joint pain. As well as, facial rejuvenation.

Based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), a medical system that has been used for thousands of years to prevent, diagnose, and treat disease, acupuncture uses specific points on the body that correspond to internal organ systems to help relieve pain, balance the nervous system and improve wellness.

In addition to acupuncture, our doctors regularly performs more specialized techniques, including:​

Trigger point release – perfect for tight muscles and knots.​

Electro-stimulation acupuncture– hooking the needles up to a small micro-current to relax muscle tone.
