Acu-Mass combo is an individually-tailored treatment to alleviate muscular pain and tightness, reduce inflammation and improve recovery. The therapist will ascertain your health history and assess your mobility and posture. Most frequently, treatment begins with palpation of areas linked to your complaint, followed by 20-30min of acupuncture treatment. The acupuncture treatment may vary from leaving needles for a length of time, dry needling technique stimulating contracted muscles to release tension, or electro-acupuncture where electrodes are attached to acupuncture needles and stimulate the area using electrical currents. The most suitable method will be selected during the initial consultation. After acupuncture treatment, the practitioner will perform massage, blending techniques of sport, deep tissue massage, trigger point release, myofascial release and manipulation.
This is an efficient and cost-effective all-in-one treatment to loosen up deep and stubborn knots and pains. Utilising electro-acupuncture due to its effect on perception of pain, it helps to reduce discomfort, and overstimulation of muscles will reduce their tone.
