What is Acupuncture? Acupuncture is used as a physiotherapy modality as a way to improve natural healing, and decrease pain. It involves the insertion of fine needles into specific points in the body. These points are determined by a thorough physiotherapy assessment to determine the cause of the pain.
Anatomical Acupuncture: This approach is called Anatomical acupuncture which is practiced by western trained acupuncture therapists. Our therapists are trained through the Acupuncture Foundation of Canada Institute(AFCI).The AFCI trains health care professionals to apply acupuncture within their scope of practice.
How does it Work? Acupuncture is believed to work by releasing endorphins, hormones that are naturally produced in the body. Endorphins help decrease pain by blocking painful pathways from the body to the brain, which allows the body to restore biochemical balance and stimulate natural healing ability.
