Dr. Lopes uses an evidence-based biomedical approach in acupuncture with a foundation in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
Acupuncture is an alternative medicine originating in ancient China that treats patients by manipulating thin, solid needles that have been inserted into acupuncture points in the skin. According to Traditional Chinese medicine, stimulating these points can correct imbalances in the flow of qi through channels known as meridians.
Acupuncture can be helpful for pain relief for headaches, back pain and arthritis. It is used to encourage natural healing, improve mood and energy, reduce or relieve pain and improve function of affected areas of the body.
In addition, acupuncture can be very helpful to induce labour for a pregnant woman at the end of the 3rd trimester.

Registered Massage Therapy.
Registered massage therapy (RMT) is an important part of your health maintenance plan. It can help reduce pain, improve joint mobility, improve circulation, improve functioning of the immune system, reduce anxiety, reduce muscle tension and increase body awareness.
RMT benefits people of all ages. While it benefits the injured, the ill and the stressed, the real impact of massage therapy lies in prevention.
