Acupuncture Healing & Function

About Medical Acupuncture
 

Contemporary Medical Acupuncture is a safe and effective therapeutic technique. Fine solid needles (acupuncture needles) are precisely and painlessly inserted into anatomically relevant points. The needles may be stimulated by hand or with electricity to induce a therapeutic effect on the nervous system.

 

Medical acupuncture can affect our hormones and immune system, improving our pain sensitivity, mood, and stress levels. It is helpful for pain syndromes, functional movement limitations, muscle and joint injuries and other diseases in which modification of the nervous system can provide therapeutic benefit.

How Does It Work?
 

Changes to the nervous system with medical acupuncture occur at multiple levels: peripheral nerves, the spinal cord, brain stem, brain and cerebellum. In other words acupuncture can have an effect at the site of injury or dysfunction, along the path of the nerves to our spinal cord, and it can change where/how our brain perceives pain or injury. 

 

Dr. Dynes was trained at McMaster University's Contemporary Medical Acupuncture program. This clinical approach incorporates the latest contemporary scientific medical knowledge about the treatment of pain and movement dysfunction using acupuncture and electroacupuncture.
