What is acupuncture and why is it useful?

So, what is acupuncture? Essentially, it’s the stimulation of different acupressure points to treat pain. You have hundreds of these points in your body, and when an acupuncturist stimulates them on or beneath the skin, it activates the release of pain-relieving chemicals and may trigger other benefits too. At our chiropractic clinic in Vaughan ON, we offer a type of acupuncture that provides this stimulation without needles.

What are the benefits of acupuncture?

Acupuncture is an all-natural way to reduce tension, relieve pain, and promote healing. By stimulating your body’s own acupressure points, your acupuncturist kick-starts the release of chemicals that relax tense muscles and relieve pain. Some acupressure points service additional purposes, such as the point on your inner wrist that can be stimulated to reduce the urge to vomit. Acupuncture offers these benefits and more for our chiropractic patients:  

  • Relieves Pain
  • Reduces Tension
  • Aids Sleep
  • Reduces Anxiety
  • Prevents Nausea
  • Regulates Bodily Functions

The benefits of acupuncture apply to patients of all ages and lifestyles because acupuncture can be customized to target the points that are important for your particular treatment. From injuries that need help healing to chronic conditions that cause ongoing pain, many different sources of pain and tension can be managed with acupuncture.

What do you treat or manage with acupuncture?
