Acupuncture improves the body's functions and promotes the natural self-healing process
At Beaumont Wellness Centre we offer Beaumont’s most experienced Acupuncturists in a safe, sterile (yet still relaxing!) clinical environment. Any medical procedure that breaks the skin is an intrusive procedure that should be carried out a professional clinic with rigorous policies, standards and inspections. Needles are never reused. At our facility we offer extended evening hours and you will be steps away from other healthcare practitioners who are dedicated to your health and wellness.
Acupuncture can treat a variety of health concerns. Some common conditions that have been successfully treated with acupuncture are:
Pain: Acupuncture can effectively treat many types of pain by a combination of loosening tight muscles and fascia, breaking the pain cycle, releasing endorphins and treating the root cause. It can help alleviate nerve pain (such as trigeminal neuralgia and sciatica), chronic migraines and headaches, joint and muscle pain, idiopathic chest and heart pains and sports injury or overuse.
Gastrointestinal health: Improper digestion can result in frequent trips to the washroom, pain and a lack of energy due to an inability to absorb vital nutrients. Most gastrointestinal issues, including GERD, IBS and IBD, respond very well to acupuncture treatments. Depending on what is being treated the aim is to increase relaxation, stimulate or inhibit gastric or intestinal contractions and decrease inflammation and pain.
Women’s health: Acupuncture has the ability to treat the root cause of PMS, painful menstrual cramping, infertility, menopausal symptoms, hormonal imbalances and more. It has also been shown to significantly boost the chances of becoming pregnant for those undergoing western fertility treatments.
Emotional health: Acupuncture regulates the endocrine and nervous systems. This allows it to balance many hormones and chemical substances in the body. Due to this, it can help treat many issues such as irritability, anxiety, high stress and depression.
Many other concerns: Some examples of other issues that can be treated are insomnia, general fatigue, feeling too hot or cold, lack of circulation and night sweating. It can also help with treatments for other modalities such as releasing tight hips for easier chiropractic adjustments, reduction of tight muscles and knots for more mobility and less pain during massage treatments or as an aid for smoking cessation.
Jocelyn, has spent her entire life trying to help people, even as a little girl she would play nurse and give away her toys to kids in need. She would dream of ways she could help others when she grew up. Fulfilling that dream has made her 7 years of post secondary worth it. No matter how many people she helps, she will always be honoured to be part of the journey to healing and health.
Jocelyn enjoys treating all conditions but has a particularly affinity for treating disorders of the head and neck (whiplash and it’s associated disorders, jaw disorders such as TMJD etc), digestive health, emotional and mental health (including stress andanxiety), sleep disorders, women’s health and pain.
