Acupuncture

Whether there is a presence of a medical condition or not, everybody can benefit from acupuncture because of its homeostatic effects that help the body regain balance and function better. For example, it can help the body improve its stress response, promote relaxation, improve sleep and mood, strengthen the immune system, increase energy, improve circulation and healing, and improve digestion.

Among the therapies available for pain, acupuncture is among the most effective and best at treating most types of pain without causing harmful side effects.

In most cases, the pain will resolve and not return—unless there is new aggravation.

After injuries, surgeries, or pregnancies, it can noticeably speed up recovery and healing. Paired with its regenerative function is its excellent ability to release muscular or fascial restrictions to restore range of motion and structural balance.

Many athletes use acupuncture regularly to maximize their performance and speed up recovery.

Acupuncture Treatments

Acupuncture treatments may be integrated with herbal medicine, lifestyle modifications, and dietary guidelines to make it more holistic and effective. Any condition can benefit from this multi-directional approach and participation depends on your specific needs.

At Vida, we seamlessly integrate the profound traditions of acupuncture with the advancements of modern therapeutic practices. Our repertoire includes the specialized technique of dry needling — a contemporary approach that beautifully augments traditional acupuncture, ensuring our clients experience enhanced relief and healing.

What is Dry Needling?

Dry needling, often mistaken for traditional acupuncture, is a therapeutic technique that focuses on the treatment of muscle tension, pain, and movement impairments. Using thin, sterile needles, our licensed Acupuncturists target specific trigger points or knots in the muscles that cause pain or discomfort. Unlike traditional acupuncture, which targets energy meridians to balance the body’s Qi (energy flow), dry needling hones in on specific muscular and neuromuscular areas to relieve pain, improve range of motion, and enhance performance.

Benefits of Dry Needling

  • Pain Reduction: By targeting trigger points, dry needling can alleviate local and referred pain, offering relief from chronic pain conditions and muscle tightness.

  • Improved Muscle Function: Dry needling can help restore normal muscle length and function, aiding in the rehabilitation of injuries.

  • Enhanced Movement: For athletes and individuals seeking improved mobility, dry needling can facilitate better movement by releasing muscle tightness and reducing joint strain.

  • Complementary Treatment: Dry needling can be seamlessly integrated with other therapies, like massage or physical therapy, for a comprehensive healing approach.
