Acupuncture In Alliston

Take Your Health To The Next Level With Acupuncture

Acupuncture

Acupuncture has been practiced for over 3,000 years in Asia.

Acupuncture is a therapeutic method used to encourage natural healing, reduce or relieve pain, swelling and improve function of affected areas in the body. Practiced for about 4000 years, acupuncture is based on principles of traditional Chinese medicine.

The treatment involves insertion of very thin sterile, disposable needles (less than the thickness of a piece of hair) into specific points, resulting in an increase of endorphin production (the natural pain-relieving chemical of the body) by the central nervous system. The result is pain relief and enhanced healing. There is no injection of any substance and treatment itself causes minimal, if any, discomfort.

Acupuncture is effective and is often successfully used as an alternative to medication or even surgery. Acupuncture is very effective in treating a variety of painful disorders, both acute and chronic, from digestive, respiratory, urinary, menstrual, addiction, neurological and muscular conditions.

What About The Needles?

The most common question we get is about the needles we use. Most people have encountered hypodermic needles and sewing needles. Both types are gigantic compared to the ones we use. In fact, five of our needles could easily fit inside a hypodermic needle!

Acupuncture In Alliston Actually Feels Great!

When we first insert these ultra-fine, sterile needles at special energy points on your body, most people report a small prick, like a mosquito bite. When there is discomfort it is usually created by vivid imaginations, not our needles!
