Neurofunctional Acupuncture
in Etobicoke

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture originated as a treatment tool in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and dates back to as far as 100 BCE. It is the insertion of very thin needles through the skin to affect the nervous system. Acupuncture has been used for ages to relieve a variety of ailments.

In the physiotherapy and neurological physiotherapy world, we use it to address neuromuscular pain and dysfunction. For this purpose, acupuncture has been modified and given names like Dry Needling, IMS, etc. This can include Electroacupuncture, which stimulates the nerves with electric currents that do not harm the patient.

Neurfunctional Acupuncture

Neurofunctional Acupuncture, as taught by Dr. Alejandro Elorriga Claraco in the McMaster Contemporary Medical Acupuncture program, uses TCM acupuncture points that specifically coincide with nerve pathways. Acupuncture needles are inserted at varying depths to target specific nerves. This type of neurological physio treatment requires an understanding of the complexity of the nervous system.
