Acupuncture Windsor Ontario Dr Scott ColasantiAcupuncture is used to encourage natural healing, improve mood and energy reduce or relieve pain and improve function of affected areas of the body. It is safe and effective and is often used as an alternative to medications or surgery.The theory of acupuncture is based on the premise that bodily functions are regulated by an energy called qi which flows through the body; disruptions of this flow are believed to be responsible for disease.

Acupuncture describes a family of procedures aiming to correct imbalances in the flow of qi by stimulation of anatomical locations on or under the skin (usually called acupuncture points or acupoints), by a variety of techniques. The most common mechanism of stimulation of acupuncture points employs penetration of the skin by thin metal needles, which are manipulated manually or by electrical stimulation.
