Prevention is the practice of cultivating lifestyle habits that contribute to optimum, not just acceptable, levels of health. Knowledge is truly power in medicine and arming the patient with information is the doctor’s proper responsibility, teaching the patient how they can best care for themselves.

Acupuncture can be used to help manage a number of different problems including:
Acupunture is a practice with an ancient history and rich tradition detailing the use of very small needles at certain points on the body in order to stimulate its natural healing responses.
Needles are placed at specific points at various points all over the body according to the patient’s symptoms. Each needle is sterilized and is used only once before it is disposed of; there are no medicines on or in the needle
The sensation of the needle serves as a trigger for the systems of the body involved in restoring and maintaining health. The acupuncture needles are very unlike hypodermic needles used for injections and IV’s, and the treatment itself has been shown to stimulate a rise in endorphins and a feeling of calm.
It is true that patients often experience positive results following their first treatment, but the effects of acupuncture are cumulative and so regular treatments are considered the best approach when first beginning treatment.
A licensed Naturopath (N.D.) attends a four-year graduate-level naturopathic medical school and is educated in all of the same basic sciences as an M.D., but also studies holistic and nontoxic approaches to therapy with a strong emphasis on disease prevention and optimizing wellness. A Naturopath takes rigorous professional board exams so that he or she may be licensed by a state or jurisdiction as a primary care general practice physician.
In addition to a standard medical curriculum, the Naturopath is required to complete four years of training in clinical nutrition, acupuncture, homeopathic medicine, botanical medicine, psychology, and counseling (to encourage people to make lifestyle changes in support of their personal health).
Like other doctors some Naturopaths go on to have an eclectic practice where they offer many different treatment strategies in their clinic whereas others specialize in a more focused field. Whatever services may be available in a Naturopathic practice you can be sure that safe and ethical practice are the number one priority.
In states where they are licensed, Naturopaths treat all medical conditions and can provide both individual and family healthcare. Among the most common ailments they treat are allergies, chronic pain, digestive issues, hormonal imbalances, obesity, respiratory conditions, heart disease, fertility problems, menopause, adrenal fatigue, cancer, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome.
Acupuncture has been a great treatment to help me get my chronic pain under control, and to keep it that way.
To be honest I didn’t expect much when I went in for my first acupuncture session but within a short time I found myself surprised at the large degree of improvement I saw from the treatments.
I started to notice improvements in more than just the complaint I had asked Dr. Arbour to address, I felt calmer and had a sense of greater well-being.
I was so relaxed during the treatment that I even started dozing off at one point.
I am so happy that I have a choice I can trust for complementary and alternative healthcare and at Arbour Acupuncture Clinic I always feel confident that my safety and health come first.
