Acupuncture is one of the many treatments used within our holistic, mutlimodal approach. It uses very fine needles that are inserted into muscles and soft tissue to reduce pain, inflammation and re-establish balance in the body. 

What is acupuncture?

Based on traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture needles are used to stimulate the flow of Qi (energy) throughout the body using channels called meridians. Stimulating Qi positively affects organs, muscles and the body, helping the body achieve a state of balance, upon which effective recovery and rehabilitation can take place.

It is known that acupuncture needles can regulate the release of naturally occurring chemicals and neurotransmitters in the body that control pain, as well as helping reduce inflammation and influencing the central nervous system to reduce painful stimulation.
