Traditionally used as a Chinese medicine technique to balance a person’s
internal energy, modern acupuncture now embraces the principles of Western
medicine to treat a variety of pains and ailments. An acupuncturist will
place small, thin stainless steel needles onto very specific parts of
the body in order to stimulate parts of the nervous system. Acupuncture
can be used to improve overall health, treat nausea, and target specific
aches and pains. Acupuncture treatment is a holistic treatment approach
that promotes circulation and natural healing at the site of injury. If
you are interested in acupuncture treatments, our team at ProFysio Physical
Therapy can help.
About Acupuncture Treatments
The human body contains thousands of points, called meridians, where acupuncturists
can apply needles in order to redirect energies and stimulate the central
nervous system. Injecting needles at these meridians can route sensations
and commands through the body using the central nervous system. This can
stimulate nerves and muscles for beneficial pain relief by stimulating
certain pain relief chemicals in the body, encouraging an increase of
blood flow to where the body needs it most in order to restore balance
in the body. Insertion of needles at the site of injury is not necessary
to have a desired treatment and healing effect. This means the patient
will experience very little pain and significant relief.
