Project Description

Acupuncture Services in Hamilton

Acupuncture is a nerve stimulation technique that uses fine needles and sometimes mild electrical stimulation for a therapeutic purpose. Acupuncture can be offered from a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) approach or from a Contemporary Medical approach. Each style has a different purpose and our practitioners are trained in both. Please inquire about how we can best serve you.

Who provides acupuncture?

At Durand Health acupuncture is offered by our naturopath, Dr. El Sawaf, and our chiropractor, Dr. Toth. This service is billed under their designations respectively.
