How Acupuncture Works

At our clinic, our team uses a more modern approach to the age-old practice that is Acupuncture. By combining our understanding of traditional practices and the scientific results shown by today’s technology, we are able to provide a treatment that is well-rounded and tailored to our patient’s needs.

Acupuncture can be used in numerous ways to assist with individual health concerns. We can share that when Acupuncture needles gently enter the skin:

  • The neurological system is stimulated which affects local tissues, and internal organs via reflex neurological pathways and the brain
  • Hormones are regulated both on a local, mind and systemic level
  • Local tissues are stimulated to decrease tension in the connective tissue and decrease inflammatory factors

These effects have been shown to encourage the improvement of many different health concerns.

A benefit of seeing a practitioner is getting your health concern assessed and diagnosed. Our team views health as a state of balance as opposed to having a problem or not. This approach allows for both innovative treatment and prevention of health problems.

The process is simple, the first step is to come into our clinic for an Initial Appointment. This is where your practitioner will identify the area of concern and understand what symptoms you are experiencing. We will address these symptoms to help you get relief fast, as well as look at the causative factors to eliminate this from occurring again. Follow-up treatments will be used to accelerate your healing and work on maintenance treatment to help prevent relapse.
