How does it work ?

Acupuncture draws on the belief that an energy called Qi (pronounced “chee”) circulates throughout our body, from the top of our head to the soles of our feet. When we experience good health, this energy flows unobstructed along pathways in the body called meridians. Each meridian is believed to be connected to a specific organ system, and when an energy flow is disrupted by a disease or an injury, illness or pain occurs. Acupuncture is then used to balance the flow of Qi and stimulate our body’s natural ability to heal.

Acupuncture involves placing thin needles into certain areas of the skin. When stimulated, the point sends a message along the nerve to the brain and spinal cord. This causes the brain to release chemicals such as endorphins. These are chemicals our own body produces that alter or eliminate the message of pain being delivered to the brain.

Why should you use chiropractic and acupuncture as a dual treatment?

Rather than using these treatments sequentially, using chiropractic and acupuncture as a dual modality treatment allows you to get the greatest benefit at one time. Chiropractic works to correct subluxations based within the nervous system by using targeted manual adjustments to the spine. This treatment allows the central nervous system to send messages throughout the body to promote healing. On the other hand, acupuncture works to remove blockages that may interfere with the body’s internal balance.

By using these treatments as a dual treatment, they work together to remove all blockages from your body which improves energy flow, speeds up healing, and promotes balance in the body. Using these techniques together may be the most efficient form of treatment available to you.
