Acupuncture uses your body’s natural channels and rhythms to enable the healing energy of the body to access the area impacted by the injury or illness. The energy of the body can then clear blockages and correct imbalances to relieve pain and encourage the body and the mind to heal.
One of acupuncture’s many strengths is its ability to manage pain and heal the body without chemical, surgical or pharmaceutical intervention. Acupuncture is effective in all aspects of physical health, whether in the acute stage of a sports injury, in the days post-operative recovery, or in the case of chronic back pain and sciatica.
Couples who are experiencing challenges with conceiving children have found that acupuncture is a very effective treatment on its own, and also an effective support treatment while undergoing IVF therapy.
In addition to being an effective treatment for physical health, acupuncture can be an excellent tool for mental health and can treat a wide variety of conditions that can otherwise results in addictions, destructive behaviour and eating disorders. Stress, anxiety and insomnia as well as depression and chronic fatigue are a few more conditions that acupuncture is quite effective in treating.
Western science offers that acupuncture allows the body to access its parasympathetic nervous system, the body’s “rest and digest” functions, that allow and encourage the body to heal from a very deep level.
