Our Oakville Physiotherapists and Massage Therapists discuss with our patients if Acupuncture may be of benefit to them. Patients are always involved in the decision making process for their Physiotherapy and Massage treatments. They will discuss any risks and benefits of a given treatment with them prior to starting.
