What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is one of the forms of physiotherapy treatment used widely to treat muscle tension and to improve body function.  It is a drug free form of pain management.  Fine thin needles are inserted through the skin at specific points on the body to relieve pain and to regain body function.

How does Acupuncture work?

Acupuncture is a safe and efficient alternative to medication. Insertion of needles at certain anatomical points in the body stimulates release of endorphins (natural pain relieving neurohormones) which results in natural healing.

Therapeutic effects of acupuncture include the following:

  • Pain Relief
  • Improves body function
  • Decreases muscle tension
  • Increases energy
  • Improves mood
  • Improves blood circulation
