Why Is Sensory Neuromuscular Bodywork So Effective?

Here are just a few reasons…

It's Incredibly Safe

Manual therapeutic techniques, such as Sensory Neuromuscular Bodywork, is one of history’s safest and effective therapies. It is used to promote many different aspects of health, including: blood flow, neuromuscular activation and to break up adhesions tight musculature, to name a few. It is also very relaxing to help with stress management.

Proven Results

Manual bodywork techniques are perhaps some of the most effective therapies and rehabilitative techniques used across many disciplines, chiropractic, physical therapy, massage therapy. It has been around for centuries within Chinese medicine. It has stood the test of time and continues to demonstrate effectiveness today. We know it to be highly effective for a wide range of sports and orthopedic conditions (e.g. tendinopathies, ligament strains, etc.).

How Sensory Neuromuscular Bodywork Helps

Stimulates Your Neuro-Muscular System

With pain and inflammation comes inhibition of neuromuscular control due to a reduction in sensory proprioceptive feedback. The nervous system responds to reduced neural “information” by restricting range of motion. This helps to ensure improved joint stability. By improving the sensory afferent feedback, the brain has better information and increases mobility and range of motion.

Improves Microcirculation

With many manual bodywork techniques we can relax “tense” or constricted muscle, which also restricts healthy blood flow through the tissues of the body. These techniques promote lymphatic drainage, reduces swelling, and helps to bring nutritious, oxygenated blood to injured tissues, and pull “old” blood away from affected areas of the body. This has a positive effect in creating an environment for improved healing and overall well-being.

Promotes Tissue Healing

When your muscle tissue is relaxed, it is able to remove blood and fluids that accumulate in the injured tissues surrounding tissues and joints. In addition, by restoring proper or healthy neuro-muscular patterns the mechanical stress of dysfunctional movements are corrected. The result is a decrease in pain and inflammation, improved healing, increased mobility and joint function.

Helps Your Body Create Healthy Movements

With the application of Sensory Neuromuscular Bodywork as a weekly therapy for several weeks, your body naturally and gently begins to shift into positive movement patterns. The changes induced by this therapy in conjunction with corrective exercises literally retrain new, healthy neural pathways so you can move and feel your best.

Common Questions

DOES IT HURT?

You will not experience pain with acupuncture. You may experience warmth, heaviness, tingling, or other sensations in and around the needle site.

HOW MANY NEEDLES WILL I GET?

The number of needles depends on what we’re working on. But, generally speaking, we use about 10 – 12 needles per treatment.

WHERE DO YOU PLACE THE NEEDLES?

The needles are placed into strategic points on your body, called “acupoints” or “trigger points” to stimulate circulation, calm the nervous system, and have effects on various organs and tissues. Most of the points are on the forearms, lower legs, lower back or tummy.

IS THERE ANY BLEEDING OR RISK OF INFECTION?

There is no bleeding. Unlike hypodermic needles (used for injections and to draw blood), acupuncture needles don’t cut you. And, they are sterile and disposable so there’s no risk of infection.

HOW OFTEN DO I NEED TREATMENT?

You will most likely come for treatment once weekly. For more serious conditions – like significant chronic pain – we might recommend twice weekly to start.

HOW LONG WILL I HAVE TO KEEP COMING?

Unlike many other clinics, we won’t try to get you coming weekly for months on end. Our goal is to get results efficiently and quickly so you don’t need continual follow-up. Most likely you’ll have weekly sessions for about 6-12 weeks or so. Then, we’ll need to start making room for all the friends and loved ones you’re going to send to us!

WHAT ABOUT NUTRITION AND DIET?

We are definitely able to help you with that. In fact, Chinese Medicine (the medical system of which Acupuncture is a part) is a very advanced system of food therapy. You’ll have the opportunity to try supplements as well.
