Contemporary Medical Acupuncture (CMA) is an elegant and modern approach to an ancient system of healing. Bridging the gap between traditional acupuncture and western medicine, CMA allows the practitioner to apply fine acupuncture needles to stimulate the body's peripheral nerves, bringing about changes in the body.
This evidence-based treatment aims to relieve pain and other symptoms associated with acute and chronic injuries or dysfunctions. In some cases, needles can be stimulated with a mild electrical current to increase the therapeutic benefits.
Acupuncture can be incorporated directly into an existing treatment plan, as most conditions respond well to the combination of needling and manual therapy (such as chiropractic or massage).
