ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture is a therapy used to reduce pain and improve function. It is safe and effective, and often used as alternative to medication. Very fine needles are inserted through the skin and tissues at specific points on the body. Nothing is injected into the tissues. “Anatomical” acupuncture is the modern approach used today by most western trained therapists including the Acupuncture Foundation of Canada Institute.

Acupuncture stimulates the body to produce its own pain relieving chemicals called “endorphins”. Endorphins block pain messages to the brain. Acupuncture also reduces inflammation and helps to promote physical and emotional well being. Acupuncture is used for muscular and neurological disorders: back and neck pain, tendonitis, arthritis, loss of joint movement, sciatica.

Physiotherapists in Alberta are primary caregivers in our health care system.

You do not need a doctor’s referral.
