Motorpoint acupuncture is a muscular-skeletal style of acupuncture. The treatments are chosen when a particular patient is suffering from an acute or chronic pain condition in the muscles and/or joints of the body. Specific locations are needled and a direct needle sensation is experienced by the patient. It may be a quick fasciculation of the muscle, which is a involuntary contraction of the muscle or a dull aching sensation. Muscles are targeted in treatment to relieve the tension within the muscles to support the muscles to relax which improves circulation to the muscle tissue and the surrounding structures.
