Acupuncture Burlington

Dr. Maja and Cameron Edgar are licensed acupuncturists and received their training at the Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine, Continuing Education department at McMaster University. This program utilizes the most current evidence through clinical trials, and systematic reviews for point selections and applications.

What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a method that promotes natural healing and improves the functioning of your body. We insert tiny needles and apply electrical stimulation at very precise acupuncture points.

How does acupuncture work?

The modern scientific explanation is that needling the acupuncture points stimulates the nervous system to release chemicals in the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. These chemicals will either change the experience of pain, or they will trigger the release of other chemicals and hormones which influence the body's own internal regulating system. The improved biochemical balance produced by acupuncture will stimulate your body's natural healing abilities, and promote physical and emotional well-being.

What are the benefits of acupuncture?

Acupuncture is particularly useful to resolve physical problems related to tension, stress and emotional conditions. The World Health Organization recognizes the use of acupuncture in the treatment of a wide range of medical problems, including:

  • Neurological and muscular disorders
  • Headaches
  • Facial tics
  • Neck pain
  • Rib neuritis
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Tennis elbow
  • Lower back pain
  • Sciatica
  • Osteoarthritis

Are there any side effects to the treatment?

There are usually no side effects following your treatments. You may feel with the first one or two treatments to have a sensation of deep relaxation.

Do the needles hurt?

Acupuncture needles are very thin and solid and are made from stainess steel. The point is smooth (not hollow with cutting edges like a hypodermic needle) and insertion through the skin is not as painful as injections or blood sampling. The risk of bruising and skin irritation is less than when using a hollow needle. Most patients feel only minimal pain as the needles are inserted; some feel no pain at all. Once the needles are in place, there is no pain felt.

"Do's and Dont's" on the day of the treatment?

To enhance the value of a treatment, the following guidelines are important:

Do not eat an unusually large meal immediately before or after your treatment.

  • Do not over-exercise. Plan your activities so that after the treatment you can get some rest.
  • Continue to take any prescription medicines as directed by your regular doctor.
  • Remember to keep good mental or written notes of what your response is to the treatment. This is important for your doctor to know so that the follow-up treatments can be designed to best help you and your problem
