Acupuncture

AIM Health Group clinics offer Contemporary Medical Acupuncture an adaption of Chinese Acupuncture that draws upon principles of evidence-based medicine and current knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and pathology. This technique involves precise, peripheral nerve stimulation to regulate abnormal activity of the nervous system and/or the hormone and immune systems. Practitioners often use acupuncture alongside other therapeutic modalities, including chiropractic and massage therapy techniques.

Our trained acupuncturists stimulate targeted, neuro-reactive anatomical sites with single-use, sterile acupuncture needles. This practice, with or without electrical stimulation, creates reflex responses in several levels of the nervous system, which in turn activate the endocrine, exocrine, and immune systems.
