Acupuncture Treatment

Acupuncture is the procedure of inserting and manipulating fine sterile needles into various points on the body to relieve pain or for therapeutic purposes.

Therapeutic acupuncture has been around as a medical intervention for centuries and can be used for a wide range of conditions. The American Academy of Medical Acupuncture (2004) states: “. . acupuncture has its greatest success and acceptance in the treatment of musculoskeletal pain.” (1)

Here at Life Physio + Rehab, we use Therapeutic Acupuncture (a mix of Traditional Chinese, Japanese and Dry Needling techniques) to complement your physiotherapy, pilates or massage sessions to assist with:

  • swelling
  • muscle relaxation
  • myofascial trigger point release
  • direct pain control
