Acupuncture is a treatment using tiny needles and stimulation to treat the body. The needles are placed in strategic neurological spots on the body to regulate nerve paths and decrease pain. By regulating the connection between the brain and an area of the body, the nerve will learn to send new and improved signals, which will treat the area. This creates a long lasting effect and relieves your pain. Acupuncture has many other benefits to the body as it connects with our nervous system, such as a relaxation effect. Most patients find this treatment very calming. Acupuncture should not be painful. ‘Mosquito-like’ sensations might be felt with some points, otherwise it should be pain-free.
Acupuncture is combined with manual therapy for an optimal healthy outcome.
