What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture, a system which originated in ancient China, has increasingly been adopted by medical science in the last 40 years. As more and more evidence of the effects of acupuncture is demonstrated, its use has become standard in physiotherapy and rehab clinics across the globe. Acupuncture treatment in combination with physical therapy is an excellent strategy for speeding the rate of recovery from pain and injury.

Acupuncture’s advantage is that it uses electrically conductive needles to directly interface with the peripheral nervous system in order to manipulate sensory and motor function, as well as sympathetic and parasympathetic activity. This means that acupuncture is not only great for pain relief, but also for improving muscle weakness caused by chronic or acute injuries by strengthening the neurological supply of inhibited muscles. 

Acupuncture can also offer treatment for systemic health problems via the autonomic nervous system. For example, issues caused by over-activation of the sympathetic system, such as high blood pressure, anxiety or poor digestion, can be effectively treated via the regulating effect of acupuncture. 

Facial Cosmetic Acupuncture

Facial Cosmetic Acupuncture is a branch of treatment that focuses on facial rejuvenation. Extremely tiny needles are used to promote blood flow and collagen production in order to tone facial muscles and decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for a more youthful appearance. A standard course of treatment requires 10 sessions for best results.
