Musculoskeletal issues is a broad term for any pain or discomfort you feel in your muscles and/ or bones.
What causes musculoskeletal issues?
Musculoskeletal issues are caused by a sudden impact, force, vibration or unbalanced position. These improper movements cause injury to the surrounding muscles and/or bones.

Our approach to treatment
We often use a variety of different treatment tools when treating musculoskeletal issues. For most, we begin with gentle massage to soften the muscle, before moving to acupuncture to deeper release the tension. Sometimes we include other techniques such as cupping or gua sha, to provide additional stretching and release.
Each patient’s treatment is different, and will be determined by the consulting practitioner.
Our goal is to reduce pain, return movement and restore function.
