The National Institutes of Health estimates that approximately 25.3 million adults suffer from chronic pain (defined as experiencing pain every day for the preceding three months). They also estimate that nearly 40 million adults experience what is considered severe levels of pain.
Chronic pain can be debilitating for those suffering from it and directly impacts quality of life. People often treat chronic pain with anti-inflammatory medications (both prescription and over-the-counter), physical therapy, or with ice and heat, but those options don’t always provide long lasting relief. According to Harvard Medical School, “acupuncture is an option with a good track record that’s worth considering.” continue reading
Acupuncture has been used for over 3,000 years for many ailments, including the treatment of infertility.
It works by improving egg quality, sperm quality, and the uterine lining, as well as supporting hormone balance to increase the success rate of the pregnancy going full-term up to 90%. Research shows it takes at least 3 months to improve egg and sperm quality. Lifestyle changes, nutrition and stress can show up in egg and sperm quality.

Did You Know?… Fibromyalgia is very difficult to treat with traditional western medicine.
With acupuncture, however, we have over a 90% success rate in treating fibromyalgia and reducing the intensity and frequency of pain by 70-90%. Fibromyalgia is usually diagnosed by your physician, using a specific set of very sore trigger points, very commonly on the torso and arms, that are usually worsened by stretching and self-massage, only to become seemingly worse with each attempt by the patient to ease their own discomfort.
Indeed, fibromyalgia can make one feel absolutely hopeless, as though nothing will take the pain away. It is painful to the point that quality of life is impaired significantly, function is sometimes compromised due to pain, and often the only solution provided is pain medication, which unfortunately does not always help.
Now there is hope. Cloud 9 Acupuncture has a winning combination of treatments that aide in providing long-lasting relief of fibromyalgia, often getting to the root cause of the condition and reversing the condition using advanced therapies to include acupuncture, ATP Resonance BioTherapy, and O3 Regenerative Therapy, with therapies that also target improving the overall immune response.
The first step is to call for a consultation to assess your unique fibromyalgia condition to properly design a treatment plan that will be successful in getting your life back, without pain.

Did You Know?… Acupuncture is the perfect solution for Neuropathy!
Our Acupuncturist has over a 90% success rate in treating neuropathy. First, we begin with conducting a Toronto Exam to determine what percentage of nerve damage is present in the hands and the feet, measuring left and right sides concisely. This way, we can determine how aggressive of a treatment approach is necessary, and for how long.
Most of our neuropathy sufferers attend therapies two times per week, usually incorporating acupuncture, electroacupuncture, ATP Resonance BioTherapy, and sometimes DVIT such as B12 injections, as well as medical grade topicals to improve overall circulation and speed up the body’s ability to heal.
Neuropathy improvements are accumulative over time, with permanent, long-lasting results. The burning, numbness, pins and needles, and fear of falling due to not feeling one’s feet goes away quickly as the neuropathy improves with the prescribed treatment plan. Cloud 9 Acupuncture has been receiving referrals from local neurologists and orthopedic surgeons to treat difficult neuropathy cases, as we have time tested protocols helping our neuropathy patients get back to living the life they love.
The first step is to call for a consultation to assess your neuropathy condition so as to design a proper treatment plan unique to you.
