Acupuncture is rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for over 2000 years. It helps with increasing blood flow and restoring energy. Western medicine has adapted this alternative method as it's found to have many benefits. Therapists use thin sterile 1-time use acupuncture needles (thin or thinner than a strand of hair) and insert them along certain points along the body. Acupuncture is a holistic alternative method which can help with:
- Muscle, tendon, joint pain/aches/stiffness
- Tendonitis/tendinopathies (i.e., carpal tunnel, tennis/golfers elbow, rotator cuff
- Muscle/joint restrictions
- Arthritis (i.e., osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis)
- Pain management
Are there any side effects?
When done correctly, there are no harmful side effects. Our practitioners are trained to perform acupuncture.
What is the cost of acupuncture?
There is no extra cost - acupuncture is used as a treatment technique by our clinicians
How does it feel?
It depends - for some it can be sore (similar to the soreness you feel after a good workout), for some heaviness, and for some relaxing!
