What are the Benefits of Acupuncture?

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?

This therapeutic method is a part of Traditional Chinese Medicine and has been used successfully for thousands of years. It can promote the flow of Qi (meaning energy, and pronounced “chi”) to address the deficiency or blockage of energy flow in the body due to different pathogenic causes.

There are many reasons why energy deficiency and blockages can occur, which include (but are not limited to):

  • Past Physical Injuries
  • Various Diseases and Pathogens
  • Over-Medication
  • Too Much Stress
  • A Poor Diet
  • Lack of Sleep

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


Acupuncture Treatments for Pain, Stress & Discomfort

An experienced acupuncturist in Calgary can help to manage pain and discomfort all over the body, from neck and back pain to anxiety to digestive problems. Acupuncture can also reduce symptoms related to: 

  • Headaches
  • Joint Pain
  • Menstrual Cramps 
  • Chemotherapy-Related Nausea  

Because acupuncture is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine, it’s a natural alternative that more and more people are switching to and seeing results. Acupuncture treatments are unique to each patient, and results are felt differently from person to person. 

At our Calgary acupuncture centre, we can treat you so that you can experience improved well-being that includes better circulation, improved sleep and less fatigue, reduced stress levels, increased energy levels, and most of all, less pain. There are so many reasons to try acupuncture; it’s hard to choose just one!

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.

What is the Acupuncture Process Like?

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.
