Neurofunctional / Medical Acupuncture

Neurofunctional Acupuncture/contemporary medical acupuncture is a precise neuromodulation technique targeting peripheral nerves, but affecting the spinal cord, brain stem, brain and cerebellum. After a thorough biomechanical and movement assessment, therapeutic goals and treatment targets are selected based on the identified neurological dysfunctions contributing to the clinical presentation of the symptoms.

Treatment involves peripheral nerve stimulation through sterile, single-use, fine, solid acupuncture needles with either manual or electric stimulation to elicit regulatory mechanisms in the body through up-regulation or down-regulation of neurofunctional sites. Based on anatomical landmarks and modern medical literature, the goals of medical acupuncture are to modulate the nervous system; increase the firing of muscles, accelerate tissue healing and composition at the cellular level, modulate pain, normalize muscle tone, and improve functional biomechanical issues.
