WHAT IS ACUPUNCTURE?
Acupuncture is a gentle therapy that treats abnormal activity related to your nervous system, immune system, glands, and organs. It uses fine needles that are inserted into specific nerve sites to address pain, functional problems, and even some diseases.
WHEN IS ACUPUNCTURE RECOMMENDED?
At Movement Health, Neurofunctional Acupuncture is recommended if your health and/or mobility are being compromised by an issue related to your nervous system. Whether you’re looking for pain relief or simply want to support the optimal functioning of your immune system, we work with you to create an Acupuncture care plan that will help you reach and/or maintain your health and mobility goals.
Your Medical Acupuncture care plan can include follow-up visits as well as referrals to other healthcare professionals. Whenever possible, the Movement Health team will work with your other healthcare providers to enhance the effectiveness of treatments that you’re receiving outside of our clinic.
WHAT TO EXPECT
During an Acupuncture treatment, one of our qualified and experienced team members will gently insert sterile, solid needles into specific nerve sites on your body. The needles are so fine that you might not even feel them. Your practitioner will then stimulate those nerves by gently wiggling the needles with their fingers and/or by transmitting low-levels of electricity through the needles.
- Improved nerve function
- Improved organ and gland function
