The first use of medical acupuncture can be traced back thousands of years to China. Medical acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific areas of the body, depending on the patient’s condition.

The needles are used to stimulate nerve endings and send feedback signals to the brain which can result in pain relief, muscle relaxation, immune responses and rebalancing of the nervous system.  Medical acupuncture is an effective and simple treatment approach that is pain-free and based on current concepts of neurophysiology,  neuroanatomy, and pathophysiology.

Medical acupuncture can be used to treat a wide variety of conditions and can be incorporated into your chiropractic treatment or used as a stand alone treatment.


A standard medical acupuncture appointment is utilized to address a distinct, or multiple concerns. Appointment time ranges from 20-30 minutes depending on condition being treated.


This is a hidden gem in downtown Ayr. I originally came in for acupuncture as I heard it can help with my sciatica (and it has). I work at Toyota and found out I have coverage for orthotics and chiropractic too so I have been taking full advantage and find I’m more relaxed and out of pain. Dr Ryan used laser therapy on my shoulder 3 times and I’m not getting that tingly feeling in my hand anymore. He’s a great chiropractor.
