Contemporary Medical Acupuncture, also known as “neurofunctional acupuncture” involves the comfortable insertion of small acupuncture needles at target sites along the body. Acupuncture produces therapeutic effects by stimulating chemical changes in the local tissue, as well as the nervous system.

Benefits of Acupuncture 

  •  Pain Relief: acupuncture triggers the release of the body’s natural analgesics resulting in a decreased perception of pain
  • Tissue Healing: acupuncture reduces inflammation and promotes tissue healing by lowering inflammatory markers in the body and and promoting increased blood flow and oxygen to target tissues
  • Relief of Trigger Points and Muscle Pain: acupuncture stimulates the body’s own neurological mechanisms resulting in a reduction of muscle tension
  • Stress Relief: specific acupuncture points are known to stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system which is essential for relaxation, sleep, recovery and healing

Conditions 

  • Pain of any kind
  • Headaches, jaw pain, neck pain, back pain, shoulder pain, hip pain, knee pain… and so on!
  • Acute injuries (strains, sprains)
  • Chronic injuries (repetitive overuse)
  • Muscle tension and trigger points
  • Neurological conditions (numbness and tingling)
  • Sympathetic overdrive (stress, poor sleep, inability to relax)
