Nxt Generation has an acupuncture clinic in Montreal, Saint-Henri (South-West of Montreal) with an acupuncturist holding over 20 years of experience in her field.
The needle manipulation in acupuncture is truly a work of art. Acupuncture is an alternative medicine based on Traditional Chinese medicine, practised for over 2 500 years. This therapeutic approach is actually recognized by the scientific community for relieving pain and inflammation.
During treatment, extremely fine needles are inserted into the trigger points of the body at different depths. They’re placed on the surface of the skin holding the most amount of nerves to impact the function of organs, glands, muscles, etc.
It’s important to know that they are many approaches to acupuncture. Our certified specialist Marianne Boutin, who works in our acupuncture clinic in Montreal, is a member of the Ordre des acupuncteurs du Québec since 1998. She’s very passionate about her work. She manipulates the needles with steadiness and precision, while continuously expanding her knowledge for over 20 years.
Marianne has built great expertise in the treatment of myofascial pain (trigger points). The clinical efficiency of this treatment, for this kind of pain, is gaining more and more recognition from the medical community across the world. Competency and rigour are two qualities that define our acupuncturist. She likes to mix the different technics that she learned over the years.
Marianne’s specialization : sport medicine, fertility treatments and anxiety issues.
Trigger points are what we call knots in the musculature. They’re small areas of tightness that can cause pain while moving or even resting. The pain is usually felt in the near area of the trigger points. However, when we press directly on the points, we can provoke irradiation or the same feeling of pain. During a session of acupuncture, our goal is to loosen the affected muscles and to eradicate the trigger points by massaging them or by using a dry needle.
