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.

Acupuncture can help patients suffering any of a long list of ailments, including those affecting internal organs and systems.
