Acupuncture – Duncan B.C., Denise D’Fantis – Cowichan Valley Acupuncture 

Traditional Chinese Medicine is an ancient system of holistic medicine originating in China thousands of years ago.  Acupuncture, which is a main component of this medical model, has been used since then to effectively treat a multitude of physical and emotional imbalances including but not limited to, muscular-skeletal pain, (including chronic and acute back pain), gastrointestinal disorders, gynecological and obstetrical concerns, stress and anxiety, and much more.


As a registered Acupuncturist, I strive to provide my patients with simple and effective treatments for a variety of ailments.  I am passionate about implementing the most beneficial treatments possible, including appropriate lifestyle recommendations.  I strongly believe that one may achieve optimal health by maintaining proper balance in all areas of life, including the physical and emotional realms.



Acupuncture, which is a major component of Traditional Chinese Medicine, involves the insertion of ultra thin, sterile needles into specific areas of the body in order to initiate a therapeutic response.

Acupuncture is based upon the premise that an intricate system of energetic channels or meridians circulate throughout the body. When there is an unimpeded, free flow of energy, or “qi” throughout these channels, the body enjoys a homeostatic state and health.
