Acupuncture is a form of alternative medicine that originates in Ancient China and is widely used throughout the world today. The basic principles of this practice are inserting very thin needles into pressure points throughout the body to relieve muscle tension, stress, and can aide greatly in healing muscle trauma. It is also used in the treatment of chronic pain, neurological problems, stroke rehabilitation and post surgical recovery. Dynamic Balance Massage Therapy offers acupuncture services to our patients either on its own or as a part of a larger therapeutic plan. This in combination with our full range of physiotherapy services offers our patients a wide range of options based on their comfort level and their needs.
The ancient art of acupressure is a 5000 year old tradition originating in Asia. The idea behind the technique is that there are points on the body which can be activated to promote healing. These points are found on every part of the body and can be used to:
- Boost the Immune System
- Release Tension
- Increase Circulation
- Relieve Stress
Cupping therapy involves using cups and some method to create suction and pressure on the skin. Traditionally it was small pieces of burning paper placed inside the cup and then applied to the skin.
