Acupuncture is a widely used therapy at the Dronyk Health Clinic. Single-use, disposable acupuncture needles are used to stimulate specific points along the meridian paths in order to affect change in the body processes. This ancient Chinese technique can be useful for a multitude of problems, including pain, inflammation, smoking cessation, infertility, digestive disorders, headaches, stress relief, immune boosting, and circulation. The acupuncture done at the Dronyk Health Clinic is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine and follows the Five Element Theory and Meridian Therapy.
Cupping is another therapy done at the Dronyk Health Clinic. It helps with pain, inflammation, tight muscles, will increase blood flow and help with relaxation. Often the cupping treatments incorporate the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine and are placed along the meridians. A combination of moving and stationary cups are used at the Dronyk Health Clinic.
A dispensary of Chinese patent herbs is also available and prescribed frequently along with the acupuncture and cupping treatments.
