Relieving Pain and Limitations with Acupuncture

At Miller Health, we are able to offer both Traditional Chinese Acupuncture (TCM) and Medical Contemporary Acupuncture (CMA). Using knowledge of anatomy, physiology and pathology, we can provide pain relief and alter movement patterns, improving overall function. Acupuncture has been widely studied, and has been shown to be effective in reducing chronic pain, anxiety, insomnia, and can assist with many other common conditions. 

Using painless needling techniques, acupuncture can be incorporated into your plan of care for a variety of conditions.

Acupuncture and TCM In Orillia

Acupuncture affects the body’s neural and hormonal systems through the painless insertion of stainless steel needles into specific areas of your body. 

The well established meridians – channels of acupuncture points connected to various organ systems – provide a framework for the use of needle acupuncture, cupping, acupressure, gua sha, moxibustion, and other modalities. There is a clear emphasis on the prevention of illness by maintaining homeostasis within the body. 

Acupuncture is one component of the TCM philosophy and offers a unique perspective on our health that is complementary to the rest of our team members’ professions. 

A Registered Acupuncturist is part of a regulated college, like Physiotherapists and Chiropractors in Ontario.

What to Expect During Your Acupuncture Appointment?

  • A general health assessment because you are unique and this will help determine the most effective treatment;
  • Asking deeper questions relating to your current symptoms such as pain, past treatments, medical history, diet, digestive system, sleeping patterns and emotional health;
  • The Registered Acupuncturist may take your pulse and assess the structure, colour and coating of your tongue;
  • The Registered Acupuncturist will explain the risks and benefits of treatment, and according to their assessment, choose specific acupuncture points and begin treatment.

What Conditions Does Acupuncture Treat?

The systems which can be affected by acupuncture (TCM) through neurofunctional sites include:

  • Nervous
  • Endocrine
  • Exocrine
  • Immune
  • Neurovascular

The overarching efficacy of Acupuncture as a means to treat these systems means that it has virtually limitless potential for aiding specific ailments as well. Chronic pain management is one of the most common reasons patients choose to explore acupuncture, but it’s far from the only one. 

Physical Responses to Acupuncture Treatment

Being that it is a time-tested Eastern tradition, there’s no doubt that millions of people have felt the curative properties of acupuncture. Acupuncture can eliminate pain, mitigate functional issues, help with fertility, and even help prevent disease, but how?

There are three main ways that acupuncture treatment impacts the body:

  • It improves nerve signalling so that different parts of the body are better equipped for communicating
  • It promotes greater circulation in the areas where the treatment is focused
  • It leads to a decrease in muscle tension surrounding the focus area
  • It can help stimulate the release of beneficial chemicals (like endorphins) from your brain and reduce the release of problematic chemicals (like cortisol)

Still, every acupuncture treatment will feature the same mechanics. This is, perhaps, the most wonderful part about acupuncture: it’s very simple, yet very effective, and completely customizable. Your treatments at Miller Health are personalized according to you, your history, your symptoms, and your goals.

Choosing The Right Acupuncture Clinic

As mentioned above, acupuncture is a highly personalized treatment. It requires a great deal of customization and care in order to be truly effective. For this reason, it’s crucial to select a clinic that places a large emphasis on long appointment times to give every patient the attention they deserve.   

Due to the fact that we are a multidisciplinary clinic, our team can prescribe acupuncture treatment alongside several other therapies to provide the most effective care possible.

Frequently Asked Questions About Acupuncture

Reach out if you can’t find what you’re looking for.

Acupuncture is a form of traditional Chinese medicine that involves the insertion of thin needles into specific points on the body called acupoints. The goal of acupuncture is to balance the flow of energy (or “qi”) in the body to promote healing and alleviate pain and other symptoms.

The theory behind acupuncture is that the insertion of needles into certain points on the body can stimulate the nervous system and release chemicals in the brain and muscles. These chemicals can help to reduce pain, improve blood flow, and promote the healing of damaged tissues.

Acupuncture is used to treat a wide variety of conditions, including chronic pain, headaches, osteoarthritis, menstrual cramps, and others. It may also be used as a complementary therapy for conditions such as cancer, addiction and anxiety.

During an acupuncture treatment, a practitioner will typically insert thin needles into the skin at specific acupoints on the body. The needles may be left in place for at least 20 minutes, after which they are removed. Some practitioners may also use heat, electric current or stimulation.

Acupuncture is considered to be a safe form of therapy when performed by a properly trained practitioner. However, as with any medical procedure, there is a risk of side effects, such as tenderness, mild bruising, or light bleeding.

An acupuncture appointment typically lasts 45-60 minutes. It is not uncommon for the practitioner to recommend several sessions, depending on the condition being treated and the severity of symptoms.

Because it can provide concrete medical results, acupuncture provided by a Registered Acupuncturist is covered by many insurance plans. If you are unsure, reach out to your insurance provider to verify.
