Acupuncture and Acupressure
At Dr. Lee Health & Wellness in Waterloo, we provide acupuncture and acupressure services to help treat a wide range of conditions and disorders. We find it very useful for stabilizing pain levels and allowing the body to begin healing itself.
Acupuncture and acupressure are both great modalities for stimulating the body’s natural immune responses. There is evidence that acupuncture also works on pain gateways, which is why we often use it as a technique for pain control or relief. When doing acupuncture, we use traditional, dry needling that is sterilized beforehand, only used once and properly disposed afterwards.
Why choose acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine based on 3,500 years of empirical data. Acupuncture works by stimulating pressures points on the body to produce a desired physiological change. Our acupuncture services also incorporate modern laser acupuncture technology in combination with the age-old Chinese techniques.
Think of acupuncture as “flipping the switch” on a circuit breaker when the power goes off—it is a way of resetting your body’s circuitry to restore its normal function.
Similar to acupuncture, acupressure focuses on these same energy meridians, by applying sustained pressure to their points—similar to Shiatsu or Nimmo massage. Both techniques are very good for treating muscular conditions. We have found them to be effective with the following: headaches, lower back pain, numbness in extremities, sciatica, rotator cuff and shoulder issues, peripheral joints and knee pain.
