The art of promoting natural healing
The art of stimulating specific points on the body by needling or electrical impulse to promote natural healing, control pain and normalize function.
Acupuncture is the practice of stimulating specific points on the body, by either needling or electrical impulse, to promote natural healing, control pain and normalize function. Our physiotherapists, chiropractor and naturopath use acupuncture as part of their treatments, and within the scope of their respective practices.
Modern Scientific Approach
At Physiomobility, we practice Medical Acupuncture, also known as Western Acupuncture, which uses trigger points and regional points, as well as Traditional Chinese Medicine points. There is an increasing body of scientific research showing the effects of acupuncture on the body, including its regulation of nerves and the release of a myriad of neurotransmitters and hormones.
Needling acupuncture points stimulates the nervous system to release chemicals in the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. These chemicals will either change the experience of pain, or will trigger the release of other chemicals and hormones that influence the body's own biochemical balance produced by acupuncture, resulting in stimulating the body's natural healing abilities and in promoting physical and emotional well-being.
The most common conditions treated by acupuncture include:
- Acute and chronic pain
- Neck & back pain
- Jaw joint pain (TMJ)
- Headaches & migraines
- Arthritis & other joint conditions
- Poor circulation
