Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a safe and effective alternative to medication and surgery. Acupuncture can encourage natural healing and shorten the overall amount of treatment time a client needs. Acupuncture stimulates the flow of Qi in Traditional Chinese Medicine.  When the balance of flow of Qi is disrupted it may cause pain, illness and injury. We have qualified practitioners to help strengthen the flow of Qi to help address your pain and improve your function.

Acupuncture is carried out by our certified professionals and is completely safe. The risk of experiencing an adverse effect is very small with acupuncture. Acupuncture cannot be used on everyone. It is important to inform your practitioner of your medical history, medications and if you are pregnant or could possibly be pregnant, to help determine if it is an appropriate treatment course.

Acupuncture stimulates specific points on the body and has the ability to cause biochemical and physiological changes. Acupuncture can help stimulate the release of endorphins to help with pain management. It can improve circulation, decrease inflammation and improve the function of the hormonal system.

The risks and side effects to acupuncture are low as we use single-use, sterilized disposable needles. More common side effects include soreness and minor bruising at the site of insertion. Other risks of acupuncture include dizziness, fainting, increased pain, and very rarely it may cause a pneumothorax.

Before your acupuncture appointment, make sure you eat a light meal, avoid drinking too much coffee, avoid drinking alcohol, limit stress if possible, wear loose fitting clothing and turn off your cell phone so that you are not disrupted during your appointment.
