In addition to the training our doctors have received in traditional acupuncture, they have also sought out and learned more advanced and effective forms for pain and cosmetics.
Muscle Release Acupuncture (Intramuscular Stimulation)
This form of acupuncture is very different than other forms you might have ever received. Muscle Release Acupuncture is a treatment intended for pain. With this form, pain relief is typically seen after one or two treatments and the results are long lasting. Most clients receiving this therapy have come from other offices where they might have received it before. After receiving MRA through our centre, they can see the difference immediately in the approach and a significant decrease in the level of their pain.
Derived from Traditional Chinese Medicine, this technique of inserting fine needles into the face, scalp and other body points is effective in reducing fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, puffy eyes and dark circles. The use of acupuncture to improve the look of skin and to slow down and reverse the signs of aging is more than just a skin deep treatment. The treatment itself is relaxing and clients report other benefits such as better sleep, better energy and improved resilience to stress.
This practice has been around for over two thousand years and has proven to be very effective, especially for pain relief and chronic illness. It is used to assist the body in regulating the vital force (Qi) and achieving balance. Acupuncture is the use of very thin needles which are inserted into specific meridian points which regulate different organs in the body. According to WHO (World Health Organization) it is effective for treating 28 conditions, while evidence indicates it may have an effective therapeutic value for many more.
