Glossary

Acupuncture : one of the ancient practices of Traditional Chinese Medicine for more than 3000 years. It involves the insertion of very fine needles into certain points, also known as acupoints, of the body. Because the needles are very thin and solid, patients may experience no pain or just a mild stinging sensation.
Acuphysio: the combination of acupuncture and physical therapy to treat a variety of neuromusculoskeletal ailments. It significantly shortens the recovery time and returns an individual to the optimal functional level

Moxibustion: a Chinese ancient physical therapy modality to warm up the meridian points either directly on the skin with a special tool or via needles.

Physical therapy: Physical therapists or physiotherapists work with patients whose movements may be undermined by aging, disease, environmental factors, or sporting hazards.
Physical therapy also means the treatment of any pain, disease, or injury by physical means.
According to Medilexicon's medical dictionary, physical therapy is:
1. The treatment of pain, disease, or injury by physical means.
2. The profession concerned with promotion of health, with prevention of physical disabilities, with evaluation and rehabilitation of persons disabled by pain, disease, or injury, and with treatment by physical therapeutic measures as opposed to medical, surgical, or radiologic measures.
A physical therapist seeks to identify and maximize quality of life and movement potential through prevention, intervention (treatment), promotion, habilitation, and rehabilitation.

Habilitation: means making somebody fit or capable of doing something.

Rehabilitation: means making somebody fit or capable of doing something they can no longer do properly or at all, but used to be able to – i.e. restoring an ability or abilities.
