At our Hamilton physiotherapy clinic we offer the following types of acupuncture: - modern anatomical acupuncture; - traditional acupuncture; - Chan Gunn intramuscular stimulation. By stimulating the merdian points the body’s own defense mechanism is activated and balance is restored. The body produces its own pain relieving chemicals called endorphins. Endorphins are the body’s natural morphine that blocks pain messages from the body to the brain. This results in pain relief, relaxation of muscle spasm, general relaxation and restoration of the body’s own internal regulatory system (autonomic nervous system). The improved energy and biomechanical balance stimulates the body’s natural healing ability, reduces inflammation and promotes physical and emotional wellbeing. Acupuncture is very effective in the treatment of many acute and chronic pain disorders.
