What is Acupuncture?

At Healthy Body, our Naturopathic Doctor Johann de Chickera offers acupuncture treatments for a variety of conditions.

Johann will first sit down with you and discuss your situation in depth. Then, he’ll perform a physical examination to assess your condition. After a complete picture of your health has been revealed, Johann will work with you to develop a treatment strategy that best suits your needs. He offers two forms of this treatment:

Traditional Chinese Acupuncture

In the traditional Chinese method, ailments are assessed within the framework of Chinese Medicine and “Qi” energy flow.

Acupuncture points along meridians will then be chosen that will best help treat your presenting symptoms and underlying condition.

Some of the benefits of the traditional Chinese approach include:

  • Hormonal regulation
  • Immune system modulation
  • Pain Reduction

Western Medical Acupuncture

Western medicine takes a different approach to diagnosis and treatment. This technique targets the anatomical structures that are the root cause of pain in the body. Dr. de Chickera may also use electrical stimulation through the acupuncture points.

Some of the benefits of this type of approach to needling include:

  • Pain reduction
  • Decreased muscle tension
  • Accelerated healing from injuries
