Registered Acupuncturists take on a holistic approach in viewing health to treat the root of an illness. Chinese Medicine treats the symptoms presented, but also focuses on the entire body while considering the patient's emotional and spiritual well-being, diet, lifestyle and environment.
Acupuncture is the insertion of very fine needles through the skin at specific points in the body used to promote healing, decrease pain and improve function.
Acupuncture facilitates the natural healing of the body. It can assist in the treatment of many conditions such as back and neck pain, jaw pain, headaches, arthritis, tendonitis, neuropathies or nerve dysfunctions, post-surgical, sports related injuries, numerous problems of muscles and joints related to the nervous system, overall physical dysfunction due to visceral, circulatory or respiratory problems. Most people feel little to no discomfort with the very fine acupuncture needles but can often feel what is described as "Qi" (pronounced Chee), or a dull ache in the area(s) where the needles are applied.
Studies reveal evidence that acupuncture can positively influence the physiology of the body's response to injury and disease by releasing hormones that naturally occur in the body as well as providing a natural anti-inflammatory to aid the body in soft tissue healing. Working together with you these treatments can be geared towards getting you back in sync to work, sport or play in a natural way.
