Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine
For over 2000 years Acupuncture and Oriental Medical modalities have been used effectively to treat aches and pains, injuries and trauma.
Acupuncture – Acupuncture needles are placed along specific areas of the body to treat all types of aches, pains, injuries, trauma and even addictions. By restoring balance within the patient, acupuncture is a safe and gentle modality for everyone.
Oriental Medicine – Herbal formulas may be recommended to support the patient internally, depending on the condition. Chinese herbal formulas regulate energy flow, blood stagnation and enhance homeostatic mechanisms to facilitate the healing process.
Research has shown that acupuncture can increase the rate of healing for all types of sports injuries. Acupuncture is an effective form of therapy because it works by regulating the bio-electric mechanisms within the body. When an injury occurs, swelling, inflammation, and pain signals block the body’s natural energy flow and creates a temporary state of stagnation and disharmony.
When acupuncture needles are placed in specific areas of the body, the electrical energy can re-adjust itself so that balance is achieved once again. This supports the inherent healing capacity of the human body to promote an efficient recovery process. Athletes are usually quicker to recover and to maintain maximum structural integrity by incorporating acupuncture into their rehabilitation regimen.
