Acupuncture/Dry Needling Therapy

Acupuncture/ Dry Needling Therapy

We offer a variety of “needling” therapies. All of the below mentioned therapies utilize very thin, sterile needles to help amplify your body’s natural processes.

Anatomical acupuncture
Typically 2-4 needles, sometimes up to 8 needles, gently inserted and rest for 15 minutes as the patient lies down relaxed.
This is performed by our physiotherapists.

Goals:
Increases blood flow
Increases natural anti-inflammatory hormone release
Increases natural pain blocking hormone release
Decreases muscle tension and activates muscle by regulating neuro-muscular input

Dry needling

Targeting areas of muscle that are abnormally tense, one point at a time.
This is performed by our physiotherapists.

Goals:
To elicit a “twitch response” that changes the behavior of the tense muscle. This decreases muscle tension and activates muscle by regulating neuro-muscular input.

Traditional Chinese Acupuncture

This ancient treatment approach has stood up to the test of time over and over again. Inserting the needles along the body’s Meridian channels helps the body regulate blood flow and energy balance. The closer the body approaches a balanced state, the better the patient feels.

This therapy is performed by our registered acupuncturist.
