Dr. Yan is an excellent doctor! She is very knowledgeable and the best at what she does. I've tried many other acupuncture clinics/practitioners over the last 12 years, and by far her treatment was exceptional. She started addressing my issues at the first appointment and within 6 weeks (of only once a week appointments) the symptoms I was suffering from were almost completely gone... then I was able to see her every other week (for only 2 more treatments), and then only once more like a month later (so only like 9 treatments total over 13/14 weeks)... and my symptoms were 100% gone. I suffer from PMDD, which is difficult to treat and very difficult to live with. It was shocking how quickly she solved my problems. I highly recommend Dr. Yan! Dr. Yan is also very gentle, kind and considerate of her patients. Thank you so much Dr. Yan!

Dr. Yan is friendly, polite and very knowledgeable. She knows her stuff! I have gone to her several times for various things over the years - including sports/training injuries and an MVA. Her clinic is always clean and tidy, and I always leave feeling better than when I walked in. Her prices are fair, which in these times, is a huge factor for some families needing treatment. Highly recommend!

At our Calgary clinic, you can experience some of the best acupuncture services in Alberta, even in Canada, promoting pain relief while also addressing root causes in both your body and mind.

What is Acupuncture Good For?

Each acupuncture treatment is designed based on the patients’ medical history and symptoms for a unique road to recovery and optimal wellness.

Process

After a thorough consultation with Dr. Yan at our clinic, she will choose a series of energy points to address your particular set of issues. Those energy points will then be accessed by inserting very fine needles in order to promote energy flow. 

Your acupuncturist may manipulate the needle back and forth slightly, and electric stimulation or heat might be applied to enhance the result. Everything will be discussed beforehand, and different acupuncture methods will be used based on an assessment of your needs.

What Does Acupuncture Treat?

Acupuncture treats pain and discomfort by interacting with energy points. But because meridians connect through the entire body, and because those meridians also pass through many vital organs, finding a new balance in the energy flow can also treat various other internal diseases as well.
