Acupuncture in St. Catharines

As an ideal complement to chiropractic, acupuncture has many terrific benefits. Dr. Marco is certified in medical acupuncture and is well-versed medical acupuncture techniques.

The medical acupuncture approach is different from traditional acupuncture because it is based on the most current principals of neurology. It takes the ancient therapy and re-defines its mechanisms and effects using present-day scientific understanding of human physiology.

Sciatic Nerve Stimulation

When the sciatic nerve is the targeted nerve, Dr. Marco’s insertion point is called sciatic nerve stimulation, which is based on proven medicine of targeting areas of need with acupuncture needles. One of the benefits of using needles is you can get deeper than you could with your hands.

Helping Patients Feel Comfortable

Dr. Marco, who despises needles, understands patients’ apprehension about acupuncture. “I tell everyone that I hate needles! And if I have to get blood drawn, I need to lie down, or I would pass out.” Acupuncture needles, however, are so thin that you don’t even feel or see them. To put his patients at ease, he’ll insert a needle into his arm. They’ll often say, “Is that it?”
