During acupuncture treatment there is insertion of very fine stainless steel needles into acupoints. Most of those points are found along meridians by which energy or Qi flows through the body. When acupuncture points are stimulated there is release of endorphins (naturaly produced pain killers) which help block the message of pain and promote healing process.
Acupuncture is most effective in treating acute and chronic pain ,such as headache ,low back ,neck or muscle pain,as well as an osteoarthritism and repetetive strain conditions.
Besides regular treatments to improve joint mobility and control pain, we offer “Short Wave Diathermy” to speed up the healing process. “Short Wave Diathermy” is a form of electromagnetic wave which helps decrease joint stiffness, increase vasodilatation, and reduce muscle spasm.
Physiotherapy treatment sessions last at least the duration of 1 hour per session. However in order to tailor treatment to your schedule you can choose a shorter duration (½ hour minimum)
