The theory and practice of acupuncture originated in China. It is a form of treatment
that involves inserting very thin needles through a person’s skin at specific points to
various depths with the aim of balancing the extremes of “yin” and “yang” energy forces
said to flow through pathways in the human body. Sometimes the needles are heated or
stimulated with electricity after insertion. Acupuncture points are seen as places where
nerves, muscles and connective tissues can be stimulated, which increases blood flower
which at the same time triggering the activity of the body’s natural painkillers. The
frequency and number of treatments differ from person to person. Benefits of
acupuncture range from Muscoloskeletal problems to headaches, reduce stress, anxiety,
chronic pain, depression, and infertility.

Chiropractic care focuses on disorders of the muscoloskeletal and nervous systems, and
the effects of these disorders on general health. Most chiropractors seek to reduce pain
and improve the functionality of the patient by using a variety of non-surgical treatments,
called “manipulation or adjustment.” An adjustment is given mainly to the spine by
applying a controlled, sudden force to the joint to increase the range and quality of motion
in the area being treated. In addition to adjustment, most chiropractors also massage
therapy, heat and ice packs, ultrasound, electrical stimulation or TENS (transcutaneous
electrical neuromuscular stimulation), magnetic therapy and rehabilitation home
exercises. These treatments are commonly used in helping to decease or eliminate pain.

Foam Rollers are long and cylindrical used for self-massage, soft tissue mobilization,

and promote good posture. By using your body weight, you apply pressure through your
muscles by rolling slowly in order to regulate the muscle tightness in that spots that
needed it. You have complete control of where and how much pressure to use. However,
if you experience any pain, immediately stop performing the exercise.
