Be. Massage Therapy



Acupuncture is an ancient form of Chinese medicine involving the insertion of acupuncture needles into the skin at specific points on the body to achieve a therapeutic effect.  The needles alone create the beneficial effects of acupuncture.  Acupuncture is used to encourage natural healing, improve mood and energy, reduce or relieve pain and improve function of affected areas of the body. It is safe, non-toxic, with minimal adverse reactions, and often effective in treating a wide range of diseases and conditions.

The therapeutic effects of acupuncture occur through its regulatory, or balancing actions on various systems of the body.  The World Health Organization (WHO) lists many conditions for which acupuncture has proven to be an effective treatment for:

  • Acute and chronic pain
  • Addictions
  • Anxiety
  • Arthritis
  • Bursitis
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Neck and Back pain
  • Depression
  • Frozen Shoulder
  • Gastrointestinal Disorders
  • Headaches
  • Induction of Labour
  • Knee Pain
  • Low back pain, Sciatica
  • Correction of Malposition of fetus
  • Nausea
  • Nerve pain
  • Muscle spasms, tremors and tics
  • Jaw pain
