Acupuncture is a therapeutic treatment involving the insertion of a sterile, single-use fine needle into certain body sites to trigger a physiological response. Our approach involves a combination of Neurofunctional Acupuncture and Dry Needling for immediate and lasting improvements in pain, range of motion, and muscle strength.
What is Neurofunctional Acupuncture?
Neurofunctional Acupuncture treatment is a painless procedure that involves inserting needles into precise anatomical sites and gently stimulates them with small electrical currents. The treatment aims to restore the connection between the nervous system and our tissues such as muscles, connective tissues and peripheral nerves. This encourages the system to reset and promote cellular activity, resulting in pain reduction and movement improvement. It is a comfortable treatment and you should only feel gentle tapping sensation or a rhythmic contraction of the stimulated muscles.

What is Dry Needling?
Dry Needling treatment involves inserting the needle repeatedly into an anatomical area of muscle tension and nerve irritation to elicit a muscle contraction, which also activates endogenous opioid production, our natural pain-killers.This technique has been shown to help target myofascial trigger points that cause myofascial pain. Dry Needling is a more invasive procedure compared to Neurofunctional Acupuncture and can be painful.
C-section Scar Therapy
C-section and abdominal scars can be a source of back and pelvic pain and impair core strength and function. It is important to normalize the mobility and sensation at these scars for better movement. Acupuncture can promote blood flow to the area, increase scar mobility and reduce pain.
