Acupuncture

 

Over the years many different types of acupuncture have surfaced ranging from acupressure which typically involves finger pressure, sonopuncture (a treatment involving a narrow ultrasound beam), to traditional acupuncture in which very small needles are used.

At the Lemire Clinic we employ a type of acupuncture known as Dolphin NeuroStim. This is a pair of hand held devices which the therapist would use on acupuncture and muscle trigger points in order to assist the flow of energy through its corresponding meridians.

It has been scientifically proven to stimulate the release of powerful internal opiates called endorphins. These natural pain relievers are secreted from the pituitary and are circulated throughout the body via the blood stream. Not only are endorphins the most powerful pain relievers known to mankind, but they also enhance the immune system, reduce stress and produce a feeling of euphoria (endorphins are your feel-good hormones).

Science has long known that a special form of low frequency DC electrical stimulation applied to these same points can reproduce the endorphin response just as in traditional needling. The Dolphin MPS is the ONLY hand held device on the market that duplicates these parameters. So the first reason why the Dolphin MPS works so well for pain relief is that it taps into the body’s own internal pain relieving system, the endorphin response.

Dolphin NeuroStim will provide immediate pain relief, decrease muscle tightness, increase range of motion, and accelerate tissue repair for any form of musculoskeletal disorder, regardless of cause.
