Acupuncture & Dry Needling
Traditional acupuncture has been used as a health care modality for well over 5000 years. At Whyte Avenue Chiropractic & Wellness, we offer this ancient treatment with compounding benefits.
Acupuncture is the natural healing art of inserting ultra fine needles into the body at specific points. Western medical acupuncture is an adaptation from the Ancient Chinese modality. It uses our knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and pathology to stimulate the nervous system in order to treat pain and promote healing.
We provide a full acupuncture treatment plan as a primary care option or a complementary treatment alongside other treatments. It has proven to be a safe and effective care option for alleviating pain and managing and treating several health conditions.
Regular treatments are beneficial in order to achieve all these and more holistic benefits. It requires a readiness to commit to the treatment plan. Rest assured that our experts will do their part at every session.
Your first appointment will consist of an in-depth discussion with your attending acupuncturist about your general medical history, a review of the symptoms you are experiencing, your lifestyle habits, and your goals. This information will help in formulating an individualized treatment plan.
Your first session will be a 60-minute visit. Subsequent visits range from 30 minutes to 1 hour depending on services received. Acupuncture visits can include a combination of services depending on your desired treatment and/or outcome. In addition to your acupuncture treatment, fire cupping, gua sha, moxibustion, electro-stimulation, and Tuina massage are available to you within your allotted treatment time.
Rest assured, your acupuncturist can advise you on which modalities will work best to assist you in reaching your wellness goals.
