Synergy Rehab & Physiotherapy Centre has been providing Medical Acupuncture Services for over ten years.
Acupuncture is one facet of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) that has been utilized for thousands of years for its effectiveness in treating a variety of illnesses and conditions.
Research into the effects of acupuncture have shown that acupuncture treatments encourage the central nervous system to release chemicals throughout the body in order to alleviate pain and
encourage tense muscles to relax and can be used to decrease or increase nerve conduction.
This practice has been used in mainstream medicine for many years due to the effectiveness of treating many neurological and musculoskeletal conditions. Acupuncture can be used to treat a wide range of ailments from nausea and headaches, muscle aches and pains, neurological complaints and joint pathologies.
How Acupuncture Can Help You
From a TCM perspective, acupuncture helps to moderate your body’s internal energy, or Qi (pronounced “chee”), maintaining equilibrium and balance. Our specialists use their knowledge and precise skill to affect the neurological, hormonal and cellular systems of the body to reduce pain, promote tissue healing and thus advancing your recovery.
Remember to plan your activities before and after your acupuncture treatments in order to enhance the benefits – especially for the first few visits.
Do not over-eat or over-exercise before or after your sessions to ensure that your body can remain in a restful state to maximize the outcome of your treatment. In addition, pay attention and keep notes of how your body reacts to your treatment as it is extremely important to relay such details to your acupuncture provider to work together and devise your optimal treatment plan.

Do you suffer from pain or tension? At Synergy Rehab & Physiotherapy, we believe you deserve relief, and acupuncture may be the solution. In addition to physiotherapy and chiropractic treatments, we offer acupuncture at our clinic. This ancient treatment method allows us to tap into your body’s own energy and healing abilities, and the results are both immediate and long-term.
But before you come in for acupuncture, we want you to know exactly why it’s so useful for so many of our patients. Here are our answers to some of the acupuncture questions we hear most often:
What is acupuncture and why is it useful?
So, what is acupuncture? Essentially, it’s the stimulation of different acupressure points to treat pain. You have hundreds of these points in your body, and when an acupuncturist stimulates them on or beneath the skin, it activates the release of pain-relieving chemicals and may trigger other benefits too. At our clinic in we offer a type of acupuncture that provides this stimulation without needles.
What are the benefits of acupuncture?
Acupuncture is an all-natural way to reduce tension, relieve pain, and promote healing. By stimulating your body’s own acupressure points, your acupuncturist kick-starts the release of chemicals that relax tense muscles and relieve pain. Some acupressure points service additional purposes, such as the point on your inner wrist that can be stimulated to reduce the urge to vomit. Acupuncture offers these benefits and more for our chiropractic patients:
- Relieves Pain
- Reduces Tension
- Aids Sleep
- Reduces Anxiety
- Prevents Nausea
- Regulates Bodily Functions
The benefits of acupuncture apply to patients of all ages and lifestyles because acupuncture can be customized to target the points that are important for your particular treatment. From injuries that need help healing to chronic conditions that cause ongoing pain, many different sources of pain and tension can be managed with acupuncture.
What do you treat or manage with acupuncture?
