Toronto Acupuncture Treatment
Alternative Therapy That Works
If you suffer from pain, stiffness, tension or a prolonged lack of energy, acupuncture may be the right treatment for you. At AESM, many of our team members are certified and skilled in acupuncture, and may recommend it as part of your strategy to improve muscle function, reduce pain and encourage healing in your body. Our goal is to help you play to your full potential.
Acupuncture and AESM
At AESM, we understand that no two patients are the same. This is why we provide personal approaches that will address and treat your specific symptoms, lifestyle and goals. One of our Toronto based chiropractors will meet with you and, after a complete assessment, may introduce Acupuncture in whole or as part of your treatment program.
In many cases, acupuncture is effective alongside chiropractic treatment, massage therapy, and/or physiotherapy. All of our chiropractors at AESM, and many of our physiotherapists, are certified to perform acupuncture, so you can have multiple treatments performed at once by the same professional, which will save you time and money.
What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is an ancient form of Chinese medicine based on the belief that blockages of Chi, or the flow of energy through the body, can lead to pain or breakdown of various tissues and functions within the body. The practice of acupuncture helps to remove these blocks, which allows the body to heal. This form of treatment involves the painless insertion of needles into the skin and tissues at specific locations. Western medicine has adopted acupuncture for its effects on the body, which include improvement in muscle activation, nerve function, and a reduction of pain.
