Acupuncture

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practitioners at One-Stop Healthcare Clinic have a unique perspective on health and wellness that can profoundly impact your overall well-being. Our TCM practitioners utilize a combination of acupuncture, herbal medicine, dietary therapy, and other therapies to support your health.

Acupuncture, a key component of TCM, is a highly effective treatment technique for a wide range of imbalances and dysfunctions in the body. At our Richmond Hill clinic, we offer acupuncture performed by Registered TCM Practitioners who are extensively trained in comprehensive TCM healing systems. This holistic treatment approach addresses overall health and wellness, differing from the medical acupuncture performed by our qualified Physiotherapists and Chiropractors, which targets pain in the musculoskeletal system.

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture involves the insertion of fine, sterile, disposable needles into specific points along muscles, nerves, tendons, and fascia to stimulate physiological responses that aid in the body’s natural recovery process. The needles remain inserted for 10-30 minutes to create the desired physiological changes. Acupuncture promotes blood and oxygen circulation, stimulates nerves, clears energy pathway blockages, and activates immune responses to aid in tissue healing. This gentle, safe, and effective approach has gained significant popularity for treating various health-related issues.

Research studies indicate that acupuncture is most successful when used in combination with other therapies. Acupuncture needles effectively release trigger points and stimulate neuromuscular pathways, increasing the activation of targeted muscles and blood flow to the area. Research also supports that acupuncture can have an immediate influence on pain by releasing pain-relieving endorphins.

Does Acupuncture Hurt?

Acupuncture treatment causes relatively little to no pain. You may feel a sensation of heaviness or dull awareness around the needle site. If the needles are stimulated, you might experience heightened discomfort, but constant communication with your practitioner will ensure comfort throughout the treatment.
