Acupuncture is a treatment derived from ancient Chinese medicine in which fine needles are inserted at certain sites in the body for therapeutic or preventative purposes.
Traditional acupuncture is based on the belief that an energy, or "life force", flows through the body in channels called meridians. This life force is known as Qi (pronounced "chee")
Massage causes physiological changes in your body through:
The relaxation response, which is an involuntary, yet the predictable response of the nervous system to massage techniques and touch
Mechanical responses, which are physical effects that occur in the body when pressure is applied to the soft tissues
Together, these responses can produce physical and emotional benefits
Physiotherapy can involve a number of different treatment and preventative approaches, depending on the specific problems you're experiencing.
At your first appointment, you will have an assessment to help determine what help you might need.
Three of the main approaches a physiotherapist may use are:
education and advice
movement and exercise
Sometimes other techniques, such as acupuncture or ultrasound treatment, may also be tried.

Why is the combination of Massage & Acupuncture more effective?
The combination of acupuncture and massage is a powerful method of treatment. Research has shown that both acupuncture and massage individually are excellent for the reduction of pain and muscle spasms, but combining the treatments can enhance the effects.
According to the World Health Organization, there are more than 70 conditions, diseases, and symptoms that acupuncture treats. Here, we will discuss how the combination of massage and acupuncture can be substantially helpful in the treatment of orthopedic, pain, and sports injuries.
Massage therapy aids in the recovery of soft tissue conditions such as muscle spasms, muscle tightness, tissue restriction, and scar tissue, as well as imbalances in the positioning of body parts relative to other body parts, muscle weakness, and synergistic or opposing muscles or muscle groups. Massage therapy mobilizes tissues that may require separation from other tissues in the form of scars, tissue adhesions, and potential contractures. There is no substitute for the direct impact of working locally on these issues with the massage.
Just like massage therapy, acupuncture is excellent at pain relief and decreasing muscle spasms. Acupuncture improves blood flow to an area, pushing out fluids that may contain chemicals that cause pain and discomfort.
Acupuncture treatment can enhance a massage therapy session in several ways. Acupuncture needles can work into deeper tissues, such as the multifidus muscles in the spine, which no fingers, elbows, or palms can access. Acupuncture can also directly influence nerves and blood vessels with greater impact.
A perfect example of a patient benefiting from both massage and acupuncture is seen in the treatment of a previous injury where the tissues are “stuck” and immobile. The patient experiences low-grade pain or tightness regardless of how much the individual stretches. Here, massage techniques can work to loosen up scar tissue. Then, acupuncture can work on manipulating muscle tone and improving blood flow to the area. This moves chemicals that may have pooled due to the scar tissue. The increased blood flow also brings nutrients to the area which positively impacts healing. For this, Brian uses outstanding Lymphatic Drainage Muscle Massage.
If the scar tissue is deep, acupuncture can access those tissues to augment the work the soft tissue techniques have accomplished, additionally loosening up the scar.
If one treatment or another has provided limited results, give both treatments a try.
You can Book a massage, an acupuncture treatment, both, or one after the other for your maximal pain relief.
