Acupuncture is a non-invasive, alternative medical treatment option that is founded on classical Chinese Medicine practices. Acupuncture helps to promote natural healing and functioning in the body and it involves the use of inserting very fine needles into precise acupoints throughout the body. These points help to stimulate signals throughout the body and establish energy and biochemical balance improving overall wellbeing and health.
Studies have shown that acupuncture promotes the release of endorphins, the body’s natural pain killer, into the body. Acupuncture is helpful to reduce pain and to treat many different conditions such as shoulder pain, elbow pain, low back pain, sciatica, hip pain, neck pain, migraines/headaches and irritable bowel syndrome. Acupuncture at Waterdown Village Chiropractic Group has shown to speed healing of acute injuries such as ankle sprains.
According to eastern medical practice, by balancing the body’s energy, acupuncture is also very beneficial in promoting hormonal balance such as aiding in fertility concerns and menstrual irregularities (including PMS and Menopausal symptom relief). Acupuncture can also be helpful to induce labour naturally. Acupuncture can also be used for stress reduction and improving overall health and quality of life.
