The Healing power of acupuncture


Acupuncture is an ancient practice of healing dating back over 2500 years. It is a key modality of Traditional Chinese Medicine and is based on stimulating the specific points of the body in order to release blockages and encourage the healthy flow of vitality.

Acupuncture works through neurohormonal pathways and has the ability to regulate biochemical and physiological conditions of the the body and achieve balance.

Healthy ageing


While acupuncture can not reverse the natural process of ageing, it can definitely correct and reverse premature health conditions that arise from unnatural pathology. Acupuncture treatment is a great solution for patients as it is a gentle yet powerful therapy that has the ability to trigger the body's intrinsic potential to heal itself without side effe

Acupuncture and Emotional Stress

Acupuncture relieves emotional stress by regulating hormones such as serotonin, noradrenaline, dopamine and endorphins. It also balances the central nervous system by activating the parasympathetic responses which initiates relaxation.

Proper frequency of acupuncture sessions results in:

  • Higher focus and clearer thinking
  • Happier with more stable energy
  • Better self esteem
  • Less anxiety and improved sleep quality

Acupuncture and Pain

Evidence based research recognizes acupuncture as an effective treatment for acute and chronic pain conditions.

Needling at specific anatomic sites releases  natural pain killing substances such as enkephalins, endorphines, dynomorphins and some other neurotransmitters such as serotonin and noradrenalin, the powerful regulators of physical and emotional processes.

In addition, acupuncture regulates blood circulation, stimulates anti inflammatory responses and encourages tissue regeneration.

Some of the most common pain conditions that are relieved by acupuncture are as follows:

  • Back and neck pain
  • Sciatica
  • Degenerative joint disease
  • Shoulder pain
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Knee pain
  • Tennis elbow
  • Neuropathy



" I had the privilege of meeting with Dr. Romina Taheri in Vancouver where her new office is located.  She is a very thorough and competent integrative professional with very skilled hands.  Her gentle an joyous spirit would make her an ideal TCM doctor for anyone who is timid or new to the acupuncture treatment."  Dr. Theresa Nicassio

"I am not fond of needles, and finally gave in to acupuncture for health reasons.  It was such an empowering experience.  Me relaxing with bunch of needles all over my ear, face, top of my head an feet.  Took several sessions and felt much better.  Dr. Taheri is such a lovely and kind person."  Eva Bognar

" Amazing result just in few sessions so far I got control over emotions, obvious reduction on skin rashes, improvement with stressed muscle on my back.  Thank you Dr. Romina for such a big help in a short time."  Ehsaneh Vilataj

"This was my 2nd visit to Dr. Taheri.  I have had acupuncture many times over the years ( and in 3 different countries), so not a newbie.  I found her very professional and knowledgeable  Very pleasant demeanor which would put any first- time clients at ease.  For those of you who have not tried because you have an aversion to needles, please note that these are micro thin-you aren't going to feel it the way you  would someone taking a blood sample or giving a vaccination! I would say 805 of the needles you barely feel being inserted.  The ones that you do feel its just for a brief nanosecond  at point of entry.  I didn't feel anything when they were removed.  The pay off is significant- why wouldn't anyone want to try a form of relief that is almost instant (some areas kick in after a bit of a delay) and does not involve putting drugs into your body?! 

I came out with significantly increase mobility & would not hesitate to return, & to recommend her services." Patricia Reynolds

" After enduring severe psychological trauma resulting in acute pain and stress, I decided to try  acupuncture treatment with Dr. Taheri.  The results were incredible just after a few treatments.  I can hardly believe that I was able to overcome so mush with  'NO" medication.  I still get occasional treatments. She has the touch of an ancient sage! Thank you so very much." Alannah H.
