Whether you have an acute injury, a flare-up of a chronic problem or pain that just won't go away, acupuncture is one of the best choices to treat the pain and get back to health. It’s great for any kind of pain, from head to toe.
Unlike other forms of treatment which might focus on pain management, acupuncture focuses on pain treatment. Acupuncture directly stimulates the circulatory and nervous system to target the body’s own healing response to pain. There is no masking of symptoms, or long term maintenance where we want you to keep coming in for treatment forever, my goal is to help you get better.
Used in China, Japan and Korea for thousands of years as well as Europe and the Americas for over a century, it can only be criticised by those ignorant of it's effect.
Acupuncture has been come to be regarded as a legitimate treatment for many conditions. After decades of proper scientific research, it is now viewed by the larger medical community as an important tool in treating many conditions - especially in the treatment of pain management.
At this clinic (and others like it) treatments are affordable enough that you can get the care you need, as often as you need it to get better. Other healthcare treatment options also recommend frequent and regular treatment and acupuncture is no different in this respect.
If you are in 24/7 pain, you should be getting treatment 2-3 times per week until the pain is gone. You should also be able to afford it, this is why this clinic charges just $20 - 40.
A Registered Acupuncturist (R.Ac.) has had thousands of hours of education, training as well as the experience that comes from using acupuncture as the primary means of care.
Registered Acupuncturists are tested and licensed by individual provinces to a national standard.
Through the stimulation of the central nervous system, acupuncture is able to teat pain with the release of enkephalins, a natural opioid substance stronger than most pharmaceuticals.
However, acupuncture is completely safe and is not habit forming.
