Using Acupuncture As An Alternative Therapy
Our acupuncture therapists now offer a system of complementary medicine that works well in conjunction with our other therapies, but also as a stand alone therapy.
It is believed that acupuncture stimulates and boosts the body’s natural painkillers, and is beneficial in healing all manner of physical and mental conditions. It is minimally invasive and generally safe, as it is done using a clean technique and single-use sterilized needles. A number of needles are generally used and the session usually lasts around 30 minutes.
Acupuncture originates from ancient Chinese medical knowledge, and has been used by the Chinese in the treatment of many health conditions for over 2000 years. It is used to promote natural healing, relieve pain, and improve physical and mental functioning.
The process involves inserting extremely thin needles through specific points on the body to stimulate nerves, muscles, and connective tissue. Acupuncture works with the body’s own energy points to correct imbalances, sickness, pain, addictions, and stress-related disease.
At Peak Pilates and Physiotherapy we offer this treatment through our certified and skilled Acupuncturists.
