Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine technique used for thousands of years to promote overall wellness. It involves inserting very thin needles into specific points on the skin. The theory behind this practice is that there are energy pathways or meridians in our bodies that correspond to different organs and functions.
When these energy pathways become blocked or imbalanced, illness can occur. By stimulating the correct areas through needle insertion, acupuncture can unblock these pathways and restore proper function.
Does the thought of someone poking you with a needle keep you from enjoying the amazing acupuncture treatment? “But I’m afraid of needles!” You are not alone. We have heard this sentiment very often from individuals all over Edmonton. However, the needles you have probably experienced at the doctors were quite large, unpleasant and painful. In contrast, acupuncture needles used are 1/15th the size of the regular hypodermic needle seen at your doctor’s office. In other words, you can fit 15 acupuncture needles inside one traditional needle. Acupuncture needles are roughly the thickness of a strand of hair, allowing the needle to slip into place gently and painlessly.
If you want to improve your health, you should consider acupuncture. Acupuncture helps re-direct the movement of energy (Qi) and bring balance to your entire body. Acupuncture stimulates the release of chemicals in your body, called endorphins. This “feel-good” chemical is known to be the body’s natural pain killer. These are the same chemicals that are released in your body when you are laughing, exercising or eating chocolate, resulting in relaxation, pain relief, reduced inflammation and natural healing.
Do you have muscle pain and other aches in your body? Acupuncture looks at how everything in your body connects. It facilitates the body’s natural healing ability by actively stimulating trigger points and releasing “feel good” endorphins and reestablishing flow of energy throughout the body. Want to feel good? Acupuncture Therapy can be effective for many health conditions such as:
There is a reason why acupuncture treatments are growing in popularity – because they can work very well for some. Our dedicated physiotherapists are experienced in diverse techniques that target the root of your pain. Good acupuncture is like an art form. It takes a certain approach to pain management to achieve desired results. We take a holistic approach to deliver the best results for our clients.
Our physiotherapists can incorporate acupuncture to treat health issues such as back, neck, and shoulder pain as part of a comprehensive treatment plan. Studies indicate that acupuncture is most successful when used in conjunction with other scope of practices. That’s like having two treatments for the price of one! Moreover, registered physiotherapists administer acupuncture, so if you have extended health benefit plans that include physiotherapy you may have coverage for acupuncture for a portion (or all) of your treatment covered.
Not only can acupuncture help you with a chronic condition, it can also help to maintain good health, as a preventive measure, or simply to improve a general sense of well-being. This can include:
Yes, acupuncture is safe and has been practiced for thousands of years. The World Health Organization considers acupuncture an alternative medicine and does not recommend it as a first line therapy.

Many of our clients notice results immediately.
