Acupuncture Therapy in Orleans and Ottawa
Acupuncture has been used by the Chinese for thousands of years. It has gained recognition and use in the western world over the past several decades. Acupuncture treatment assists with well-being and mobility. Acupuncture may be used as the primary treatment, but generally at our clinic, it is used in conjunction with other physiotherapy approaches to maximize the effectiveness of your treatment.
How Does Acupuncture Work?
Acupuncture works by restoring the normal energy balance within the body, thereby allowing natural healing to occur. Acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine needles through the skin and tissues at specific points typically along what are called ‘meridians’ or ‘pathways’. These pathways are believed to be energy channels through which energy flows through the body. Using either needles or cold laser, our registered physiotherapists at Orleans Physiotherapy can offer medical acupuncture to patients.
The insertion of the fine needle into the tissues also releases endorphins. Endorphins are made by the body and are one of the body’s own natural pain-relieving chemicals. These endorphins block the passage of pain signals to the brain and therefore help to relieve or reduce pain within the body. When pain is reduced, the body can then restore normal biochemical balance and promote healing.
