This treatment is designed following the tenets of best evidence practice
(evidence-based medicine),and the topics of the curriculum include
the latest contemporary scientific medical knowledge about the treatment
of pain and dysfunction using neurofunctional acupuncture and electro acupuncture.
Contemporary Acupuncture aims to bridge the gap between classical acupuncture
therapy and contemporary medicine to achieve their ultimate integration.
Quite often you will see this technique referred to as, Neurofunctional Acupuncture
because it is rooted on current concepts of neurophysiology, neuroanatomy,
and pathophysiology. Its primary benefit is to restore proper function of the nervous
system by either the up-regulation or down-regulation of specific cellular functions.
To put it simply, if the nervous system is hyper-active as seen
in stress and chronic pain cases or hypo-active as seen in muscle inhibition and weakness,
we need to bring it back to a normal, optimal level of function by either turning it down or
turning it up respectively. Essentially, we are adjusting the "dimmer" switch you would use
in a home for controlling the level of light output.
It involves a comfortable insertion of small solid single-use disposable needles at relevant
points on the body in combination with manual needle stimulation or electrical stimulation.
Our practitioners have completed the Contemporary Acupuncture program, which focuses
on the science based application of acupuncture.
