Acupuncture is a therapeutic method that encourages natural healing, reduces or relieves pain and improves the function of the affected areas of the body. Used mainly to treat musculoskeletal pain, acupuncture involves the insertion of a fine needle through the skin without injecting any substance. By stimulating the nervous system, the body releases endorphins and stimulates the body`s natural healing abilities, reduces inflammation, and promotes physical and emotional well-being.
All therapists at Hazelwood Physiotherapy that utilize acupuncture are certified by the Acupuncture Foundation of Canada Institute. If your therapist feels you would benefit from acupuncture treatment, there is no additional charge.
