What is Acupuncture? Acupuncture is probably the first therapy that patients think of when they consider seeking Traditional Chinese Medical healing. As one of the commonest and certainly one of the oldest types of Chinese medical therapies, acupuncture has gained international recognition in recent decades as western scientific research increasingly corroborates what TCM practitioners have known for millenia – acupuncture is a technique that has provable therapeutic benefits. Acupuncture is actually a range of procedures all of which involve stimulating anatomical points or meridians on the body using different techniques. The most common and well known technique involves delicately piercing the skin with fine, metal needles by hand. However, acupuncture can also include electro-acupuncture in which the needles are stimulated by electrical current, ear acupuncture,cupping, and moxibustionin which the mugwort herb is burned on the end of the acupuncture needles. Acupuncture needles are so extremely thin and tiny that patients experience practically no discomfort when the needles are inserted. Although research is still ongoing to try to understand how acupuncture works, it appears on a physiological level that the insertion of the needles causes body processes and functions to physically change so that energy flows smoothly and balance is restored. The Best of Chinese Medicine offers targeted acupuncture treatments to help correct: joint and muscle pain, fertility and sterility problems, manage weight issues and for facial rejuvenation.

Chiropractic addresses restrictions and malposition of the spine. Chiropractic is the treatment of choice for backaches and for many headaches. Because of the intimate regulatory association of the spine and the nervous system, chiropractic can be of benefit in many other conditions. If the spine is misaligned, the organs will not function correctly. Chiropractic can be a useful part of much of our health care. Dr. Allan practices the Gonstead Technique of Chiropractic. When a vertebra 'subluxates' (slips out of place) it falls backwards off its disc. The Gonstead Technique moves this posterior segment anterior back into place. The use of rotation in adjustments of the neck and lumbar spine is kept to a minimum. The Gonstead Technique is particularly effective, comfortable, and safe.

What is Massage Therapy?

Massage in all its various forms is an excellent, non-invasive, gentletherapy that aids relaxation, alleviates mental stress and can help to relieve the everyday discomfort of overworked muscles, strained joints and ligaments and different types of chronic aches and pains. If massage therapy starts soon after injury it can also help limit scar tissue and prevent other muscles from overcompensating for the trauma-affected joint.
