The Power of Traditional Chinese Medicine
Acupuncture, an essential component of traditional Chinese medicine, has been practiced for thousands of years. It involves the insertion of acupuncture needles at specific points on the body to correct imbalances in the flow of Qi (energy) through channels known as meridians.
Our Unique Approach to Acupuncture
Our experienced acupuncture practitioners combine traditional Chinese medicine practices with contemporary medical acupuncture (neurofunctional acupuncture) techniques. They use a scientific neurological approach to stimulate and create a balance between damaged or weak muscles. This method is based on the neurogenic inflammation model, which indicates that if acute pain and inflammation are left untreated, they can lead to lasting neuropathic pain, such as tingling, numbness, and itchiness. These issues may result in chronic pain, referred pain, and muscle injuries if not treated properly.
Personalized Acupuncture Treatment Plans
Our first acupuncture treatment involves a thorough assessment to understand your health goals and the underlying causes of your symptoms. We then create a personalized treatment plan that may include acupuncture, gua sha, physiotherapy or chiropractic care to address your specific needs.
The Acupuncture Treatment Process
During an acupuncture treatment, our acupuncture practitioner will insert thin, sterile acupuncture needles into specific motor points of the muscle on the body. These points are carefully chosen to stimulate muscle stimulation and recruit more motor fibres to decrease muscle tonicity, increase neuro drive and therefore decrease flight or fight response, decrease inflammation, promote pain relief and healing, promoting pain relief and healing. The needles are typically painless and may cause a slight tingling sensation as they stimulate nerves and encourage the body's natural healing processes.
