Therapy & Rehab


The insertion of very thin needles through the skin at strategic points on the body is called Acupuncture. Acupuncture helps stimulate nerves, muscles, and connective tissue thus boosting overall health. As per traditional Chinese medicine, Life force or energy flow through pathways in the human body and inserting needles into specific points along these pathways will re-balance the energy flow. 

Acupuncture has proven benefits for recovering from injury or illness and can help alleviate symptoms of sciatica, back pain, bursitis, neuropathy, arthritis, and other medical conditions. 

What are the benefits of Acupuncture?

Apart from alleviating the symptoms of many health problems, acupuncture is also a holistic approach to detoxifying the body and treating disorders and discomforts. Studies have shown that acupuncture is effective for various conditions including boosting the immune system. It is also used as an alternative treatment to release stress and improve blood circulation within the body.  Apart from these, acupuncture can also help the following medical conditions

  • Digestive (like Gastritis, Irritable bowel syndrome, Hepatitis, or hemorrhoids).
  • Emotional Stress (like Anxiety, Depression, Insomnia, Neurosis, and more).
  • Eye-Ear-Throat (like Rhinitis, Sinusitis, and Sore throat).

When to see an Acupuncturist?

Listed below are a few signs and symptoms that can be relieved by acupuncture therapy.

Care by Medical Condition

Chronic Pain

Acupuncture therapy provides relief from chronic neck and back pain. According to The American Pain Society and American College of Physicians, doctors recommend their patients with chronic lower back pain to an acupuncturist, especially if conventional treatment is ineffective.

Anxiety and Mental Stress

Acupuncture helps release anxiety, anxiousness, and mental stress. The body’s overall system becomes more balanced from acupuncture.


As per a study by the Canadian Medical Association Journal, acupuncture decreases the frequency of migraines, and the effects are long-lasting.

Mood Swings

Acupuncture is exceptionally good for patients with unexplainable mood swings. The needles trigger the neurotransmitters in the brain that make the patient happy. There will be no side effects that often come with prescription medicine like sleepiness or tiredness. 

Irregular Menstruation Cycle

It positively influences the body, relieves stress, and gives the patient energy to feel great. Due to this reason, acupuncture can be used for fertility treatment as well.

Sleep Disorder

Acupuncture Therapy addresses the imbalances in the body that disrupt the sleep cycle. It encourages the brain to generate neurotransmitters that contribute significantly towards relaxation, enabling sound sleep.

Muscle Strain

Acupuncture can benefit a patient with injuries from years ago that still hurts. The needles relax the tissue around the injured muscles and let the collagen build up again, preventing the recurring pain.
