Medical Acupuncture

Contemporary Medical Acupuncture

Acupuncture is the medical practice of inserting small thin needles into various points in the body, to be left in place for a period of time before removal. At times the practitioner may attach a small electrical device to the needles to aid in treatment.

What does acupuncture do?

Needling certain points in the body stimulates the nervous system to release chemicals in the brain, spinal cord and muscles. These chemicals will change the experience of pain, or influence the body's own internal regulating system, stimulating the healing process.

How can acupuncture help?

Acupuncture has been found effective for treatment of:

  • headaches
  • neck and back pain
  • sports injuries
  • osteoarthritis
  • digestive disorders
  • perimenopausal symptoms
  • sinusitis
  • and other conditions

Kinesio Taping

It's not just for athletes.

In fact, Kinesio Taping can successfully treat a vast range of everyday conditions from headaches to foot problems, and everything in between. 

How does Kinesio Taping work?

A uniquely designed hypoallergenic elastic tape is applied to the area of injury in a specific pattern. This adds support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion.The tape is intended to be kept on for several days, and so continues to work as you go about your life. The treatment re-educates the neuromuscular system, reduces pain, prevents further injury and promotes circulation for faster healing.

How can Kinesio Taping help?

The Kinesio Taping Method can be used to help treat conditions like:

  • carpal tunnel
  • tendinitis
  • tennis and golf elbow
  • runner’s knee
  • sprains and strains
  • large bruises & lymphatic drainage
