Your body has its own healing capacity. You just need to activate it and we, your St Albert acupuncture and wellness team, can show you how.
How Does Acupuncture Work?
Does the thought of someone poking you with a needle keep you from enjoying the amazing benefits of acupuncture? “But I’m afraid of needles!” You are not alone, we have heard this sentiment very often from individuals all over the St. Albert and Edmonton areas. However, the needles you have probably experienced at the doctors were quite large, unpleasant and painful. In contrast, acupuncture needles 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.
Why Choose our St Albert Acupuncture team?
All of our experienced St Albert acupuncturists are certified. Our physiotherapists can incorporate acupuncture to treat conditions such as back, neck, and shoulder pains as part of their comprehensive treatment programs. 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 physiotherapist administer acupuncture, so if you have extended health benefits that include physiotherapy you may have a portion (or all) of your treatment covered.
