Manage Pain

(Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture)
 
Diagnostics

During the first meeting, Olivier will perform diagnostics using Chinese medicine methods. When a patient has a problem, often signs of it can be seen or felt on the surface of the skin. During the session, Olivier will be asking your questions to identify the source of the issue.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a treatment aimed at helping ease pain and symptoms originating from medical conditions of various types: injuries, muscle and tendons inflammations, post-operative recovery, dental pain, digestion issues, headaches, organ-related issues and chemotherapy.

Gua sha massage

Gua Sha is a massage technique designed to relieve tension in the muscles, boost blood circulation, and encourage lymphatic drainage. It helps break up fascia, the connective tissue that hugs muscles, but can sometimes interfere with optimal circulation. Great option for chronic pain treatment.

Heat therapy

Heat therapy is very good at increasing blood flow, damaged tissue, reducing pain, relaxing the muscle spasms and the mind. Chinese Medicine does not work with cold, as it is believed that Qi (energy) and blood move better when the body is warmer. Blood is a liquid too, so is affected by the cold.

What do scientific studies say about Acupuncture

Research into acupuncture as a medical treatment has grown exponentially in the past 20 years, increasing at twice the rate of research into conventional biomedicine. Over this period, there have been over 13,000 studies conducted in 60 countries, including hundreds of meta-analyses summarizing the results of thousands of human and animal studies. A wide-variety of clinical areas have been studied, including pain, cancer, pregnancy, stroke, mood disorders, sleep disorders and inflammation, to name a few.

"It is no longer possible to say that the effectiveness of acupuncture can be attributed to the placebo effect or that it is useful only for musculoskeletal pain.”

Stephen Janz, National President of the Australian Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Association (AACMA)

Thinnest needles

Acupuncture uses very thin needles to stimulate energy points on the body. Olivier uses techniques to ensure the insertion is sensation free. 

Sterile one time use

Yes, needles are one-time use, sterile and all medical hygiene precautions are carefully followed by Olivier. Needles are disposed of after each use. 

Fear of needles

Some people are just afraid of needles. It's normal. While some areas might be a little more sensitive than others, Olivier will always aim to use optimal and less sensitive points for your treatment.

What to expect

After the first session clients leave with 30-50% less pain, depending on the severity of the issue treated. During the session after needle placement you may choose to talk with the practitioner or just relax or even sleep. 

How many sessions

Depending on the case at hand, it is usually recommended to conduct 4 sessions of acupuncture, weekly preferred after the first treatment. Even if your pain goes away after the first session, to ensure it doesn't come back.

"Where there is no movement, there is pain. Where there is movement, there is no pain"
About Qi (energy) circulation. Traditional Chinese saying.
What do our clients say:
 I mostly do Crossfit, running (trail, Swimrun, obstacle course, triathlon) and other activities. I am Olivier for several years. I was injured several times with surgery or not and each time I opted for an additional and complementary treatment that brings me a lot, acupuncture. When I'm injured I go directly to Olivier, after making an appointment and each time the next day I'm ready to leave. In addition to the medical aspect, during a one-hour session, I feel good, I relax and doze, on the verge of falling asleep.*
