Acupuncture is an ancient form of Chinese medicine involving the insertion of ultra-fine needles into specific points of the skin. These points of energy are located along 14 meridians, or channels, that cover the entire body. Using modern techniques, contemporary medical acupuncture is able to precisely stimulate nerves to modulate pain and other dysfunctions. At Vantage Integrative Health + Wellness in Chestermere, we offer acupuncture as a complementary treatment technique to healing and recovery from a variety of health and mobility conditions. Our offerings primarily include cosmetic acupuncture, fertility acupuncture, acupuncture for pain (headaches, injuries, digestion), acupuncture for physical conditions (tendonitis, fibromyalgia, arthritis), and acupuncture for mental conditions (depression, anxiety). We realize that the use of needles can make people unsure about acupuncture, which is why we have a personalized approach to your health concerns and wellness goals. This means we invest considerable time to educate you about the procedure and benefits so that you feel comfortable and confident. We use sterile needles which are never reused and disposed of ethically to ensure complete safety of our customers.
Whether there is a presence of a medical condition or not, everybody can benefit from acupuncture due to its homeostatic effects, which help the body regain balance and function at a more optimal level. Acupuncture has an array of health benefits as it helps:
Release natural pain killers
Relax shortened muscles
Improve sleep and mood
Reduce both the intensity and perception of chronic pain
Strengthen the immune system
Stimulate the body’s “built-in” healing mechanisms
Acupuncture is one of the most effective and best modalities for treating most types of pain without causing harmful side-effects. Relief is often obtained with acupuncture when traditional medical therapy has failed.
