Acupuncture

According to Association des acupuncteurs du Québec : Acupuncture is the treatment modality of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) most widely used, recognized and taught in the Western world. It presupposes the existence of a vital energy, or Qi, that is essential to life and that flows throughout the body. This energy is transported by a system of channels called meridians. These meridians represent a large network of superficial and deep pathways that enable a connection between the inner and outer aspects of our bodies. Acupuncture points are found on the surface of your body and at very specific locations along themeridians. Mapped and documented for thousands of years by Asian societies (Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese, Taiwanese, etc.), these points have their own characteristics and indications. The selection and method of stimulation of these points are determined by the acupuncturist and based on Traditional Chinese Medicine energy and pattern diagnosis. By selecting a combination of points, the treatment will have an effect on one or more bodily organs, areas or functions, and therefore act on a set of varied symptoms related to the initial cause of the imbalance. Acupuncture is a unique therapeutic method that enables us to influence and treat the interior by using a synergy of points on the exterior aspect of our bodies.

Chiropractic

According to l'ordre des chiropraticiens du Québec : Chiropractic takes its name from the Greek words kheir, which means “hands” and praktikos to “do or practice.” Chiropractic is a health care discipline that relies on the inherent ability of the body to remain healthy and heal itself without drugs or surgery (homeostasis). It places emphasis on the relationship between structure (primarily the spine) and function, as coordinated by the nervous system.

Osteopathy

According to Ostéopathie Québec : Osteopathy is an entirely manual medical practice aimed at restoring the functions of all structures and systems of the human body. Its purpose is to assist the body’s capacity for self-regulation. The effectiveness of its technique is based on extensive understanding of the health sciences and the specific interactions that maintain homeostasis (balance within the organism). Thorough and precise palpation (manual examination) allow for complete overall investigation of the possible causes of neuromuscular, skeletal, visceral, and cranial dysfunction. Whether preventative or reparative, the concept of osteopathy is characterized by its focus on individualized treatment. Reference : https://osteopathiequebec.ca/en/us/definition-osteopathy/
