What to expect at the first visit
Practitioners at Infinity Health Centre first conduct a comprehensive health history and physical examination to determine a specific diagnosis & personalized treatment plan. Medical Acupuncture treatment involves the insertion of solid fine needles into muscles at specific points of tension in order to achieve a therapeutic effect. The needles are generally left inserted for approximately 15min-30min and may also be stimulated.
How Can Acupuncture Help?
Research has proven that needling specific acupuncture points stimulates the nervous system to release chemicals within muscles, the spinal cord, and brain. These chemicals will either change the experience of pain, or they will trigger the release of other chemicals and hormones which influence the body's own internal regulating system. Medical Acupuncture also act directly on muscles and surrounding fascia, causing a strong relaxation affect. Medical Acupuncture can aid in the treatment of a variety of conditions and ailment by encourage natural healing, reduce inflammation, improve mood/energy levels, reduce or relieve pain, strengthen muscles/nerve function, etc. The use of Acupuncture is safe and very effective and often incorporated by various health practitioners at Infinity Health Centre as part of a treatment plan.
