Acupuncture in Surrey

patient getting acupunctureIf you’ve ever wondered if acupuncture can help you, the answer is yes! Acupuncture can benefit anyone and everyone, from those suffering from stiff muscles and limited mobility to those looking to improve their emotional and mental health. It can be used for pain management, sciatica and headaches, and even weight loss.

Acupuncture is one of many modalities that have their roots in traditional Chinese medicine. It involves the insertion of fine needles under the skin, placed along particular points located along energy pathways (also known as meridians) along your body. These points help regulate the flow of energy within these pathways, correct imbalances and relieve any symptoms you may be experiencing.

Treatment through acupuncture can help you feel healthier and improve your quality of life. Though we use needles, the treatment is painless, relaxing, and can improve your overall health in many ways.

How Does It Work?

Once the thin needles are placed along your particular points, they stimulate the body to increase circulation, increase immune response, and stimulate the release of endorphins. This can help you feel more relaxed, improve your mood, and even help alleviate any pain or discomfort you might have. By stimulating the peripheral nervous system, messages flow back to the brain more freely, allowing it to make hormonal, circulatory, and immune changes.

The Bottom Line

Acupuncture at Back & Body Wellness Centre benefits the improvement of physical health conditions, as well as affective disorders, and instills a feeling of increased mental clarity. Acupuncture works directly with the body’s energy, or “Qi” (pronounced “chee”), as acupuncture practitioners believe all illnesses are due to stagnant energy in the body. If the natural flow of energy through the body becomes stuck, depleted or weakened, you can be susceptible to illness.

Treatment is effective in removing these energy obstructions. Through clinical trials, acupuncture has been proven effective in treating various medical conditions, with its use expanded now into conventional medicine practices. Acupuncture benefits a wide variety of disorders, including but not limited to

  • Asthma
  • Drug abuse
  • Alcoholism
  • Fertility challenges
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Gastrointestinal disorders
  • Headaches
  • Insomnia
  • Gynecological & obstetric concerns
  • Pain management
  • Sciatica
  • Smoking cessation
  • Strokes
  • Tennis elbow
  • Weight loss
