Acupuncture is an ancient healing art that uses needles to stimulate the bodies latent healing abilities. Acupuncture needles activate nerve pathways and promote blood flow in the bodies tissues.
At Courtenay Chiropractic we frequently use acupuncture techniques to speed up and support the healing process. Needles act as a perfect compliment to the chiropractors traditional tool kit.

Through chiropractic adjustments, we release blockages and injuries deep in the skeleton. We mirror this by working on blockages deep in the muscles and connective tissue – often using acupuncture needles.
Acupuncture brings a range of sensations during the treatment including heat, numbness, tingling and sleepiness. When chiropractors use acupuncture for pain – we look for the body to show signs of increased blood flow and muscle relaxation which let us know we are in the right spot.
After acupuncture sessions with their chiropractor most people report an immediate sense of relief or ‘lightness’ in their area of pain, reduced tenderness of the tissues, increased muscle relaxation and often can feel a bit tired from an hour to a few days.
Unpleasant reactions to acupuncture including increased pain and flu like symptoms can arise, however these are a sure sign of fast healing processes that have been woken within the body.
