Acupuncture belongs to the scope of practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). This ancient, holistic medical system focuses on treating the whole person, rather than just a disease. Acupuncture is a clinical procedure that involves the use of fine, sterile needles inserted & manipulated at specific points of the body to trigger a healing response.
Medical Acupuncture applies the evidence-based concepts of acupuncture to relieve pain, alter movement patterns and improve performance. Acupuncture stimulates the nervous system to put the body’s natural mechanisms of healing into action
The Western approach to acupuncture uses a combination of Western medicine’s understanding and knowledge of the body’s neuromuscular system, while the Traditional Chinese Medicine’s (TCM) approach uses the flow of Qi (energy) throughout the body for the promotion, maintenance and restoration of health and prevention of a disorder, imbalance or disease.
Sterile acupuncture needles are inserted into specific points on the body. When these points are stimulated through gentle and specific movements of the practitioner’s hands or with electrical stimulation, endorphins are released which act as the body’s own natural pain killers. This also helps to encourage tissue healing.
For more than 2000 years, acupuncture has been used to promote natural healing of a wide range of ailments, but today it is most commonly used to treat various types of pain caused by:
- acute & chronic neck & back problems
- frozen shoulder
- tennis elbow
- carpal tunnel syndrome
- sports injuries
- Acupuncture also offers additional treatment options to individuals with chronic health problems for which mainstream medicine presently offers no completely satisfactory treatment (e.g. multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, low metabolism).
Cupping is an adjunctive therapy to acupuncture that is a form of alternative medicine stemming from Traditional Chinese Medicine Glass or silicone cups that are suctioned onto the skin’s surface through negative pressure.
The suction draws out toxins, stimulates the peripheral nervous system, brings blood flow to stagnant muscles and skin, loosens adhesions in the connective tissue, and loosens stubborn knots in the muscles. Cups can be left over specific acupuncture points to stimulate the flow of Qi, or the cups can be used to massage the muscles causing a deeper muscular release.
