Acupuncture

Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) therapies are built on an understanding of health through balance. Symptoms, such as pain or anxiety, are signals that your health is not at its optimum.

Our therapies complement one another and may be recommended in combination. Acupuncture sessions may include cupping, moxibustion (Chinese heat therapy), soft tissue massage and herbal medicine.

Please allow 90 minutes for your initial treatment and 60 minutes for follow-up sessions. For more on what to expect, click here.

Acupuncture

The most well-known of Chinese Medicine therapies, acupuncture refers to the insertion of hair-thin, sterile, single use steel needles into precise muscular points and areas of the body, known as 'acupuncture points'. Poke Acupuncture offers traditional acupuncture therapy, electro-acupuncture and dry-needling.

When stimulated, acupuncture points have a regulating effect on the nervous system. The treatment stimulates the release of pain-relieving chemicals, improves circulation, alleviates muscle tension and clears inflammation. You can discover more about acupuncture by clicking here.

Electro-acupuncture

Electro-acupuncture (sometimes known as 'e-stim') is a modern pain treatment technique. Like traditional acupuncture, thin needles are inserted into specific points and tight muscles. The key difference is that in this case, two or more needles are attached to a device that generates a gentle pulse through the muscle.

Dry needling

Dry needling or 'trigger point acupuncture' is a technique that involves needling knots in muscles. The goal is to essentially relieve muscle tension to stop pain.

Dry needling is a technique of traditional acupuncture which you may sometimes also see offered by 'dry needling therapists'. We recommend experiencing the difference it makes having a skilled and qualified acupuncturist apply this treatment— our years of training result in a much gentler technique when needling trigger points.
