Wellness Session:  The Benefits of Acupuncture for Older Adults
December 18th – 2:30 pm to 3:30 pm

Presented by Dr. Romina Taheri, DTCM, BSc, PBD



Acupuncture is a holistic technique rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine.   This ancient practice of healing dates back over 2,500 years and has been used traditionally to prevent, diagnose and treat ailments.

In a healthy state, an abundant supply of Qi (vital energy) runs through our body.  Acupuncture stimulates very specific points of the body in order to release energy blockages and to encourage the healthy flow of Qi.

By stimulating these points, usually by means of very fine filiform needles, acupuncture has the ability to modify the biochemical and physiological conditions of your body, in order to achieve a balance.


Top 5 Benefits of Acupuncture for Older Adults include:

  • General pain relief
  • Back and neck pain relief
  • Neuropathy relief
  • Anxiety/depression relief
  • Insomnia relief

Join us to learn more.  Pre-registration is required by December 16th to 604.240.8550No charge to attend. 

Interested guests are also invited to enjoy a tour of Legacy’s main floor amenities at 2:00 pm.
