Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS)

IMS explained

IMS uses acupuncture needles to target muscle and nerve-related pain problems. It merges traditional Chinese medicine with modern science and has impressive results.

In IMS, a muscle contracts to grab on to an inserted needle and then relaxes. Done over time, the effect is cumulative and heals the muscles and the root of the problem.
