Medical acupuncture is the term used to describe acupuncture performed by a doctor trained and licensed in Western medicine who has also had thorough training in acupuncture as a specialty practice.
In Medical Acupuncture, needling specific parts of the body can result in various positive changes to the nervous system, endocrine system (hormones), circulatory system (blood flow) or musculoskeletal system (muscles & joints).
There is a release of pain-relieving chemicals called endorphins that help block pathways that relay pain messages from the body to the brain, resulting in relief of pain, general relaxation and restoration of the body's internal regulation systems.
Medical Acupuncture and Dry Needling are methods that Dr. Keith uses in his practice geared primarily towards treating pain and neuro-musculoskeletal dysfunction.
Dr. Keith received certification in Contemporary Medical Acupuncture from McMaster University in 2003, followed by Anatomical Acupuncture from the Acupuncture Foundation of Canada in 2005, Dry Needling certification from the American Dry Needling Institute in 2011 and most recently Motor Point Acupuncture certification in 2017.
