Is Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Safe?

Acupuncture Safety

Dr. Maryam’s acupuncture technique is highly skilled, accurate, clean and safe. Having been in clinical practice since 2002, Dr. Maryam has a wealth of experience. She is a board certified Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine with the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine & Acupuncturists of BC (CTCMA of BC) and has passed the exam in “Clean Needle Technique” offered through the CTCMA. She uses only sterile, single-use disposable needles and uses an alcohol swab before needling each point on the body. Each treatment room is immaculately clean and organized, as you would expect for any medical procedure.
