Acupuncture in Burlington

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is an ancient alternative medicine that first originated in China. It uses the insertion of small needles at particular points in the body to encourage pain relief, reduce swelling and pain, and decrease sympathetic system activity. If you are looking for acupuncture in Burlington, our clinic provides an ideal environment with a very experienced acupuncturist (registered at the College of Ontario).

When used on certain points of the body, acupuncture can stimulate the nervous system. This could help you change your experience of pain and trigger other chemicals and hormones involved in the body’s regulation system.

Traditional acupuncture theory believes that energy flows within the human body and that these channels can be used to promote balance and health. This energy flow, called Qi, moves throughout the body along 12 main channels known as meridians. They represent the major organs and functions of the body.

What to Expect on Your First Acupuncture Visit

During your first visit to our Burlington acupuncture clinic, you’ll receive a full assessment which involves an in-depth review of your current symptoms and persona history. Based on the assessment, our team will determine next steps and develop the most effective and appropriate treatment plan.

The acupuncturist will insert very fine "sterilized" needles under the skin at certain pressure points. Because the needles themselves are very thin, the patient experiences very little discomfort.

After the insertion, the needles may be gently moved or twirled to relieve any pressure or swelling that might be present in a particular area. In addition, the practitioner may also apply heat or a mild electric pulse to the needles inserted in the skin.

Typically, the needles will remain in place for fifteen to thirty minutes while the patient lies still and relaxes. When removed, no sensation of discomfort is usually experienced.

The acupuncturist may recommend more sessions to better assist pain and discomfort, depending on your circumstances. That’s because we don’t believe in “cookie-cutter” approaches. Each client at Pillars of Wellness is unique, and that’s why we aim to take the time and effort to get to know you and what you’re going through — helping you feel better while experiencing the most effective treatment possible.
