Acupuncture is a method of encouraging the body to heal and improve functioning by inserting very fine, sterile, disposable needles and applying heat or electrical stimulation at very precise points on the body. These points help to stimulate several body mechanisms including the autonomic nervous system, the endocrine system, and immune system. Think of Acupuncture as a method of manipulating blood flow, increasing circulating endorphin levels, and generating a healing response by focusing blood, white blood cell and histamine response.
Conditions that benefit from acupuncture include:
Tennis and golfers elbow
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Acupuncture can be done alone or in conjunction with other manual therapies such as Chiropractic manual therapy or physiotherapy treatment such as corrective exercises and stretches.
Acupuncture is offered by our Registered Acupuncturist, who also incorporates cupping therapy and traditional Chinese medicine techniques. Our Physiotherapist Natalie and Chiropractor Ian Vana also offer acupuncture as part of their treatment.
