ACUPUNCTURE + PHYSIOTHERAPY= ACUPHYSIO
Effectively combine the best of both medical practices for Pain Relief, innovation of “Acuphysio” which uses the ANATOMY from western medical (physiotherapy) and leveraging on the METHODOLOGY from the oriental medical practices (acupuncture) for more effective pain relief treatment and increases the efficacy of the healing.
According to our research and experience, physiotherapy is the best anatomy to diagnose the precise blockage in muscle and meridian point. However, the treatment to heal pain and relieve the blockage will take a longer time as the treatment is on the surface of the skin with mobility equipment without “going into” the tissues level.
“Acuphysio” combines the power of both physiotherapy and acupuncture, which uses as little as 4 acupuncture needles on 4 acupuncture points based on the accurate diagnosis using physiotherapy anatomy to relieve pain, at the same time connect the acupuncture needles (instead of via electrodes placed on the skin) to a high frequency electrical stimulation device for soft tissue stimulation.
Acupuncture is more effective to relieve pain but the subsequent treatment (rehabilitation and patient education) for strengthening the muscle and alignment for the joints is not as effective as physiotherapy. Moreover, to relieve pain for a particular part of body it requires 20-40 needles in average.
Acuphysio is effective for headache & migraines, arthritis pain, joint pain, soft tissue injuries, post-operation pain, stroke rehab, and nausea.

SCOLIOSIS 3 DIMENSIONAL THERAPY- SCHROTH METHOD
Scoliosis is a three-dimensional deformity of the spine, with a Cobb angle greater than 10 degrees. The prevalence of idiopathic scoliosis in adolescents in Asian countries is about 0.4% to 7%.
In patients with idiopathic scoliosis, early detection and diagnosis can be treated conservatively. Late detection may result in a higher proportion of patients requiring surgery, and if left untreated, it may develop severe scoliosis, which has been shown to affect patients’ lung function. In addition, severe spinal lateral deformity can also affect the patient’s self-image, which may have an irreversible psychological impact on this group of patients.
Schroth method is a non-surgical option for scoliosis treatment. It uses exercises customized for each patient to restore the curved spine to a more natural position. The goal of Schroth exercises is to derotate, elongate, and stabilize the spine in a three-dimensional plane. This is through physical therapy to restore muscle symmetry and posture alignment, breathe into the concave surface of the body, and teach you to understand your posture.
Spinal rotation of scoliosis is different in everyone. Schroth exercises are suitable for individual unique spine curvature. We educate you to exercise while standing, sitting down or lying down.
