Acupuncture: restore balance to your health.

Many studies have shown measurable effects within the body through the use of thin needles inserted at exact points.

In the West, pain relief is one of the best known benefits of acupuncture. But besides knee, back, shoulder, arthritis and other pain, acupuncture can influence digestion, depression, sleep, menstrual issues, fertility, hypertension, and many, many more health concerns.

Nutrition and Weight Loss 

Our diet affects our health: we really are what we eat.

Basing nutritional value on far more than calories alone, Chinese medicine teaches us that flavours, amount of food, and times we eat, all play a role in our health--and our imbalances.

Right now, in the West, and increasingly more around the world, what we eat is affecting our waistlines and our pocketbooks.

The increased incidences of diabetes and obesity are making us stop and take notice of what goes into our mouths. And the costs associated with poor health from poor diets is astronomical.

Alberta alone calculates costs associated with obesity to be $2 billion dollars (2010).


Stress and Mood 

Many people go through periods of the "blues" at least once in their lives.

According to a Statistics Canada study from 2002, one in 7 adults in will have symptoms relating to a mood disorder at some point in life. Women are twice as likely to experience depression as men.

The Canadian Mental Health Association states that 20% of the Alberta population will experience some form of mental illness in their lives.

Acupuncture and Chinese medicine has a long history of treating mental illness. Perhaps it can help.


Pain Management

Everyone has experienced pain.

In fact, 4 out of every 5 adult Canadians will have had at least one episode of back pain during their lifetime. (Statistics Canada) That's a lot of people that could use some relief!

In a 2007 study entitled "German Acupuncture Trials (Gerac) For Chronic Low Back Pain," researchers found that almost twice as many people found relief 6 months after using acupuncture as compared to conventional therapy (which included drugs, physical therapy, and exercise).

Acupuncture is used for other body pains as well, such as arthritis, sports injuries, and post-operative pains to name only a few.
