Welcome to Needles of Hope!
Do you suffer from chronic pain, migraines, depression, anxiety, fatigue or a neurologically-derived disorder? Did you recently suffer from a stroke and require rehabilitation? Or have you tried all Western options, and are looking for an alternative to your health care? Or for your eye care? Needles of Hope is a Chinese medicine clinic offering a safe, effective and drug-free alternative.
Our purpose is to bring BALANCE back to your body, so that your body can begin to naturally heal itself. We strive to provide a blend of proven classical Chinese Medicine practices with cutting-edge modern advancements, and are committed to the success of your treatment.
Most of us grew up with Western medicine, so it’s hard to imagine that there could possibly be another way or another paradigm of health care. Amazingly, there were ancients 3,000 years ago, who implicitly understood how stimulating “neural nodes” or acupuncture points with very thin needles, could affect both our central and peripheral nervous systems. In the case of pain, we now know that point stimulation triggers the release of the body’s internal chemicals, such as endorphins and enkephalins, which have pain-relieving properties.
More modern applications of neural node/area stimulation on the scalp (Neuro-Acupuncture) can often help with post-stroke recovery (paralysis or weakness in the face, trunks, limbs, numbness and tingling, balance, speech, vision), as well as other neurological disorders such as Cerebral Palsy, Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Traumatic Brain Injury, Phantom Pain, PTSD, Autism, anxiety, pain and much more!
As alternative medicine practitioners, we don’t limit ourselves to just acupuncture, but incorporate a number of alternative medicine therapies into your treatment plan. And guess what? Many of these therapies such as laser needles, low-level laser therapy, and photobiomodulation do not involve needles! Interested in learning more?
