Acupuncture

Acupuncture provides safe help for a wide range of health problems including chronic and acute pain. Acupuncture also has very few side effects and is a useful alternative for patients who do not want to take pain medications. The aim is not only to eliminate or alleviate symptoms, but more importantly to treat the underlying cause, increase the ability to function and improve the quality of life. Acupuncture can be used to treat:

  • Addictions (smoking, food)

  • Allergies

  • Arthritis

  • Carpal Tunnel

  • Depression

  • Fibromyalgia

  • Frozen shoulder

  • Headaches (migraines and tension)

  • Hypertension

  • Infertility

  • Low back pain

  • Sciatica

Dry Needling

Acupuncture Session

Dry needling uses a very fine, solid filament needle to cause a small, precise injury or “lesion” in the tissue when it enters the body. Needling in a painful ‘trigger point’ or muscular knot frequently provokes a “twitch” response from the muscle that will relax it and reduce inflammation. Dry needling can address muscle, tendon and myofascial pain and reduces trigger points. Dry needling is an extremely effective therapy for chronic pain and athletes with repetitive overuse injuries.
