At Lifepath Physiotherapy, we are pleased to offer our clients the benefits and principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine, also known as TCM Acupuncture.
TCM has a history of over 2,500 years of successfully diagnosing, treating and preventing illness. Our therapists are certified TCM Acupuncture Providers.
What is Acupuncture?
It is the practice of piercing the body with thin, sterile needles at specific acupuncture sites throughout the body.
According to the Chinese, energy channels (or meridians) run in regular patterns throughout the body, and our overall well-being is dependent on a balanced and smooth flow of energy throughout these meridians. Deficiencies, blockages or imbalances in energy, blood or nervous impulses may eventually lead to a decline in well-being or an assortment of illnesses. A variety of factors can disturb the flow of energy, such as disease, stress, anxiety, fear, poor nutrition, infections or injury. Inserting acupuncture needles in sites along these meridians can stimulate the nervous system and circulation, and re-establish a smooth and balanced flow through the meridians.
The goal of Acupuncture is to treat the whole person, restoring balance in the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of the individual.
What can it be used to treat?
Acupuncture can be used to help treat a wide variety of symptoms & conditions including:
- Chronic pain
- Muscle and joint pain
- Sciatic pain
- Intestinal gastritis
- Cold and flu symptoms
- Women’s health
- Weight loss
How safe is it?
Acupuncture is an external, all-natural, drug-free therapy. There is little danger of infection from acupuncture needles because they are sterile and disposable. Relatively few complications from the use of acupuncture have ever been reported.
