Toronto Acupuncture Studio – Acupuncture for All

Toronto Acupuncture Studio resize

I had used acupuncture as a treatment avenue many years ago in conjunction with chiropractic services. Too many hours at a desk had taken it’s toll. My then doctor, Dr. Darcie Sinclair had worked miracles for me. So when I found myself dealing with the after effects of an auto accident, acupuncture as a treatment modality came to mind. I started thinking. Unfortunately with my current work schedule and location I was unable to make it into the downtown core for treatment during her office hours. Add to that the fact that I’m now working for a not-for-profit organization and cost becomes a factor.

I kept digging. Group acupuncture. I’d never heard of it but was intrigued. Toronto Acupuncture Studio came up in my search. They’re pretty close to home, have extended hours (evenings and weekends), and offer a sliding scale. I checked out their website and they offered online appointment scheduling. I started thinking… I love this. It wouldn’t be the last time.

Many things bring people to the Toronto Acupuncture Studio. I’m going for muscle pain, headaches and general well being. The staff and volunteers are a pleasure to deal with and I’m thrilled to have found them.

I’m loving the new website, the video on the landing page gives you a real feel for what it’s like. They’re using technology and ancient medicine. I love it. I also love their twitter handle @TOacupunk. I’m headed over now!
