The acupuncture technique has evolved from an exotic curiosity to a form of treatment, over the years. It stems from medical practices of the Traditional Chinese culture. In this technique, the Acupuncturist in Brampton will insert fine needles into specific parts of your body.

Research and various studies carried out in determining the efficacy of this medical protocol shows that Acupuncture works by correcting the energy imbalances in one’s body. According to the Chinese belief, this technique is used to modify one’s chi or qi, i.e. the flow of energy in the body. It has been widely employed in China, as a traditional technique to treat and prevent diseases.

How does it Work?

When you visit your trusted therapist for an Acupuncture in Brampton appointment, he or she is going to use fine needles, heat, pressure and other treatments, e.g. electric stimulation, that are applied to different parts of your skin. Even though needles are a standard tool of the trade, in acupuncture therapy, the process is relatively free of pain.

The needling process causes adenosine and amino acids to become active. Both compounds are essential for easing the pain when one is injured, and that is why acupuncture is considered an effective pain relief therapy technique. The needles used in the process have to be placed at and to stimulate specific points of your body, “acupoints” or acupuncture points, as they are commonly referred to as.

You will have to stay a while with the needles on specific parts of your body. It usually takes five to thirty minutes. Most people confess that they feel relaxed, both during and after the treatment. You are likely to feel nettle to no discomfort during the procedure. It is not meant to be a painful process.
