Acupuncture and Dry needling

Originating more than 2,000 years ago, acupuncture is one of the oldest, most commonly used medical procedures in the world. Acupuncture has become better known in North America since 1971. Acupuncture literally means “needle piercing”; this technique involves penetrating the skin with thin, solid, metallic needles that are manipulated by the hands.
Traditional Chinese medicine theorizes that there are more than 2,000 acupuncture points on the human body, and that these connect with 12 main and 8 secondary pathways. These pathways are believed to conduct energy throughout the body.
Acupuncture stimulates the body to produce its own pain relieving chemicals called endorphins. The improved energy and biochemical balance produced by acupuncture stimulates the body’s natural healing abilities.
Acupuncture is very effective in treating a variety of painful disorders, both acute and chronic. It is particularly useful in resolving physical problems related to tension, stress and emotional conditions. Acupuncture can be beneficial for a range of conditions. Some examples are:
• Muscle, bones and joint disorders
• Neurological disorders
• Sprains
• Headaches
• Diseases of the muscles, bones and joints
• Strokes
• Anxiety and depression
• Digestive disorders
• Respiratory disorders
Treatments can help the body’s internal organs to correct imbalances in their digestion, absorption, and energy production activities, and in the circulation of their energy thru their body. The improved energy and biochemical balance produced by acupuncture results in stimulating the body’s natural healing abilities, and in promoting physical and emotional well-being.
The results of treatment vary with each individual – some may feel energized by the treatment, while others may feel relaxed.
Acupuncture is often combined with physiotherapy, massage therapy, or chiropractic.
