The holistic medicine that is acupuncture help the flow of all fluids, it helps to make the tendons and muscles more supple and stronger. It relaxes the body and bring back to normal the capacity of the joints.
It last for a long time
Since it strengthens the body, it’s meant to last. Your injured joint will not stay sensitive or have more chance to be injured again. There is some easy to do exercises for extra protection. You will stay active, able to do all work or any chores you need to do without pain or any problem. Our goal is to work on that injury until there is no problem left in it
We deal with the root of the problem
Injuries are not always a surface problem. We go into all that can promote being easily injured and we deal with it so it doesn't happen anymore. Bringing balance to the body is to give back the flow, the energy, the strength and the suppleness of the body
Simple and clear
Come to see us and we’ll make a plan with a goal on where we want to go, the direction we’ll take, with a specific but flexible number of treatments and potentially some exercises or homeworks. Things are clear and simple. Know what you want and I’ll get us there.
This is an approach your doctor doesn't know about
Maybe your doctor told you this is as good as it gets. But that's without our knowledge of an holistic medicine that can work wonders on any type of pain. Often we find that people who don’t respond well to conventional treatment responds very well to our treatments.
A good clear diagnosis to know and asses the root of the problem and everything around it
A clear, concise and focused treatment plan to attack the root cause of the problem along with any other symptoms you might be experiencing (poor sleep, low energy, lack of motivation and mood). It might include one or many of different therapies and homework : acupuncture, nutritional therapy, physical or relaxation exercises, meditations.
Your treatment plan will include a specific number of treatments, once or twice a week. Acupuncture treatments close enough will build on one another and give a stronger effect on your body.
Targeted homeworks. Could be exercises, nutritional support or meditations. It demands only a small commitment, like 5 minutes of work a day for a while, until the problem is resolved. It gives you additional skills and knowledge !
To ensure long lasting results and no weakness or problems left undiscovered, we might need some tune up treatment after a month or two to ensure to your results last.
There is no pain in needling and if there is any bleeding it’s very slight. The treatment itself is pain free and worry free. you can relax and many even sleep during an acupuncture treatment.
Can I ever go back to where my body was before my injury ?
Yes you can. It takes a good and precise plan of treatment and commitment. There can be needs of exercising, of different homework but many injuries can eventually simply disappear from your body.
Is it safe ?
Acupuncture is perfectly safe in the hands of a Registered Acupuncturist. It’s been practiced for centuries and it can only be helpful in my hands. Each needles are completely sterile and only used once. The worst that can happen is slight bleeding and bruising.
How long before I see results?
Sometimes you can feel it after the very first treatment, but it depends on how the body reacts. Most people coming to see us will see see strong results soon after the first or second treatment. For most, once a condition is healed, it stays that way
