How to Find a Acupuncturist in Vancouver, BC?

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine that has been practiced for thousands of years. Theories of acupuncture revolve around the idea of the yin and yang energy of the body. Needles are inserted into specific points (known as acupoints) to equilibrate this energy, or qi, which in turn will assist in our body`s own abilities to deal with various conditions. Acupuncture is shown to be effective in dealing with pain management, digestive concerns, headaches, stress relief, weight control, menopause, insomnia, and numerous other conditions.

Finding a good acupuncturist, like any other professionals, requires some effort. Since your health is of utmost importance, you will want to find the right acupuncturist to work with your concerns. 

You may start with common directory listing which are available in various sites. This may give you an idea of the number of acupuncturist available in your area. Another reliable source is to check with the governing college. For Vancouver, the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncturist is the regulatory body for acupuncturist.

Friends and family are also good referral points since nothing beats having someone who has seen the acupuncturist beforehand.
