Acupuncture originates from China and is the process of inserting needles into various points of the body and manipulating them in such a way to relieve pain and for other therapeutic services. Acupuncture is commonly used and needed to reduce pain and inflammation, increase blood circulation and to stimulate the muscles for increased natural healing ability. This ancient Chinese practice has become one of the integral stepping stones of the Relax Clinic rehabilitation and recovery plan. At Relax Clinic acupuncture is used in conjunction with physiotherapy and massage therapy to improve our patients' overall health and well being.
