Depending on the information from the history your physical examination may include both an external and an internal component. Externally a full physio scan will be completed, most often focusing on the low back, hips and pelvis. The internal examination will be performed vaginally and/or rectally.

Acupuncture

What is Acupuncture?

While providing treatments using Traditional Chinese Medicine, practitioners focus their efforts around the idea that the body’s flow of energy called qi (pronounced as “chi”) is responsible for a person’s overall health and wellbeing. If there is a disruption or imbalance of Qi flow in the body, it can cause pain and/or illness both physically and mentally. Acupuncture works by inserting extremely thin needles into the body to stimulate different acupuncture points on various channels, known as meridians,  to create a balance of Qi flow. When Qi is balanced and allowing a smooth flow, painful conditions or illness can decrease.

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine aims to treat from a holistic approach. We look at many occurrences going on in the body to find the source of discomfort while also treating the symptoms.  It’s a relatively painless and minimally invasive technique to stimulate nerves, muscles and tissues of the body. Studies have shown that acupuncture can regulate the central nervous system, stimulate the immune system and increase circulation of blood in the body. This allows the body to start healing naturally.

Many acupuncture points follow nerve routes, muscles, and connective tissue, acupuncture can be used to balance the nervous system, release tense muscles, and create a smoother blood flow in the body to decrease many types of conditions or discomfort in the body.

Studies have shown that by stimulating these specific points, the body can release tension associated with the muscles, but also endorphins that act as natural pain-killing chemicals, or affect serotonin levels – a brain transmitter that regulates mood.

Along with needling, other modalities can be incorporated into the treatment, such as:

  • Cupping: fire cupping, stationary or slide cupping. Cupping is used to increase blood flow to an area and stretch the fascia and tissues surrounding muscles to release tension and increase healing. 
  • Gua Sha: Scraping of the skin using a smooth edged tool allows increased blood flow to the area. Great to release tension and break up scar tissue, and reduce inflammation in the body. 
  • Tui Na: A TCM therapeutic massage that uses many pinch and pull techniques with differing pressure and depth to create movement in the body. It is often paired with Cupping or Gua Sha. 
  • Electro-Stimulation: Placing electrodes on the inserted acupuncture needles to create an electric current through the needles. This modality further increases movement and blood flow to the area being treated, and can create an analgesic effect depending on the frequency. This modality is great for any muscle tension, muscle or tendon injury, frozen shoulder, plantar fasciitis, sciatica, upper and lower back pain, TMJ. 
  • Moxabustion:  Burning of a herbal leaf called mugwort. It is used to warm the body and meridians to create smoother blood flow and decrease stagnation. It is often used for chronic pain, gynecological concerns, and digestive issues.
