Acupuncture has been used for over 4000 years to help people heal
What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a therapeutic modality that uses needles, laser or an electric current to stimulate acupuncture points in your body. These treatments address imbalances that arise from physical and emotional stress, poor nutrition, infection or injury.
Acupuncture stimulates your body's own healing. Acupuncture is deeply relaxing and many people rest or sleep during their treatment.
The practice of acupuncture has been regulated in Alberta since 1988 under the Health Disciplines Act. In 2011, the College of Acupuncturists of Alberta was designated to regulate the acupuncture profession.
Acupuncture alleviates pain, reduces stress, and improves your health safely and naturally.
How does it work?
Acupuncture works by engaging your body's natural healing response. Recently, scientists have studied acupuncture to better understand how it helps us heal. They found acupuncture reduces inflammation, improves circulation, decreases pain, releases endorphins, increases tissue healing, and balances hormones.
