Acupuncture has been practiced in Asia for over 3,000 years and remains an integral part of Eastern medicine.
In the West, it is a natural complement to many other therapies, such as physiotherapy, chiropractic, and massage therapy for the effective relief of a wide variety of ailments.
Acupuncture is safe and effective when applied as a treatment for a variety of conditions, including (but not limited to):
- Depression or Anxiety
- Lower & Upper Back Pain
- Nerve Pain Conditions
- Muscular/Tissue Strain
- Weight Management
Acupuncture involves the placement of extremely fine, sterile needles into specific acupoints along the channels of the body. It stimulates the release of the body’s own natural pain killers and also initiates tissue healing and disease resolution.
When an acupuncture needle is inserted it directly affects the nervous system, making changes at a biochemical level as well as influencing the fascia and extracellular matrix.
Acupuncture practitioners aim not only to provide symptom relief but to evaluate the health of an individual and address the root cause of illness in order to restore harmony, balance and overall health.
Our professionally trained acupuncturists in Burnaby can greatly improve your lifestyle and health. We provide advanced treatment methods to relieve acute and chronic pain, stress and anxiety, and set you on the path to achieving a more active lifestyle.
Each individual will be asked to complete a questionnaire to help our staff ascertain the right approach to acupuncture treatment. We will fully assess your condition and complaints before performing your first acupuncture treatment. The painless procedure is used as a starting point to promote blood circulation and energy flow. Our staff will then assess any beneficial changes or additions in your lifestyle as a result of the acupuncture.
The initial assessment can take up to 25 minutes. You will then receive a more thorough acupuncture treatment, which includes methods such as massage therapy, chiropractic therapy, naturopathic therapy, or kinesiology. You will also get a complete, holistic treatment to address any healthcare issues. Our staff members can’t wait to meet you and your family.
Is Acupuncture Painful?
For the most part, acupuncture is painless. Most individuals do not feel much, other than a tingling sensation or a dull ache. Standard acupuncture needles are incredibly tiny at 25mm to 50mm in diameter, much less than a sewing needle.
