Acupuncture

Targeting specific points along meridian pathways defined by the ancient Chinese, this modality of treatment uses needles which influence pain and tissue healing in the body. For more information visit the Acupuncture Foundation Institute of Canada:   www.acupuncturecanada.org

Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS) Dry Needling

IMS is a needling technique that helps to reduce adverse tone in tight muscle bands or trigger points that contribute to pain and dysfunction. By targeting localized areas of tightness with the needle insertion a reflex relaxation is produced in the muscle. This helps to relieve pressure on tender joint structures and in the muscles themselves which in turn influences pain and inflammation produced by the adverse tightness. Special assessment is done to determine if this modality of treatment is appropriate for you.
