Acupuncture therapy encourages natural healing to improve mood and energy, reduce or relieve pain, decrease inflammation, improve circulation and improve the function of the affected body part.
Acupuncture has been practiced for over 3000 years as a part of Traditional Chinese Medicine and is scientifically proven to be safe and effective form of therapy to treat a variety of conditions. It is based on the belief that human beings possess energy called “Qi”, pronounced “chee” and any imbalances will result in illnesses.
Acupuncture therapy consists of inserting fine, single- use disposable needles at specific points on the body which is quite painless and at times you may experience a mild ache or warmth around the insertion site. The stimulation of the needles will restore the healthy flow of “Qi” in the body and stimulates the brain to release endorphins, our body’s natural pain killer.
Acupuncture therapy can be used in combination with other physiotherapy treatments to provide exceptional results depending on your condition.
