Acupuncture at bodytonic clinic

15 Minute FREE Consultation

Acupuncture is a treatment derived from ancient Chinese medicine, and is sometimes referred to as Intramuscular Stimulation. Acupuncture involves the stimulation of the muscles and nerves of the body, using thin, single use needles. In its original form, the theory of acupuncture holds that the healthy functioning of the body is governed by the flow of a life force called “Qi” (pronounced “chee”). This life force flows through channels of the body called meridians. Acupuncture treatment works from the premise that the interruption of the flow of qi can cause illness and pain in the body; acupuncture is used to restore the flow of Qi to normal, and provide pain relief.

The modern, Western incarnation of acupuncture is tailored to treat a wide range of health conditions and musculoskeletal complaints. Before coming in to talk to our Canada Water team about a course of acupuncture, it’s advisable to consult your GP.

What are the benefits of acupuncture treatment?

Acupuncture has been used to treat a range of musculoskeletal conditions, including:
• Chronic pain
• Tension headaches and migraines
• Joint and muscle pain
• Dental pain
• Pains and aches after an operation.

How does acupuncture treatment work?

Depending on the nature of your pain or particular health condition, an acupuncturist will place up to 12 needles at different points throughout the body. Where necessary, the needles are designed to reach the muscle tissue. Once the needles are in place, they may be left in place for up to 30 minutes.
