Acupuncture in Spruce Grove

Acupunture NeedlesAvailable at our two convenient locations, acupuncture is a form of traditional Chinese Medicine that’s been used for more than 3,000 years. Though it’s often employed to relieve pain some individuals seek it to help with various conditions such as

  • Acne
  • Anti-aging
  • Depression
  • Digestive issues
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Musculoskeletal pain

As an ideal adjunct to chiropractic care, we use acupuncture when we see health problems that appear to be caused by disruption to energy pathways in your body called meridians. Acupuncture focuses on the integrity of bodily systems.

What About the Needles?

The most common question we get is about the needles we use. Most people have encountered hypodermic needles and sewing needles. Both types are gigantic compared to the ones we use. In fact, five of our needles could easily fit inside a hypodermic needle!

When we first insert these ultra-fine, sterile needles at special energy points on your body, most people report a small prick, like a mosquito bite and you may experience temporary soreness. When there is discomfort, it is usually created by vivid imaginations, not our needles!

How Does Acupuncture Work?

No one knows for sure. We just know it does. Perhaps the best way to think about acupuncture is to imagine rivers of energy throughout your body, organized by meridians. These meridians can experience a “logjam” and energy flow is restricted. The needles help loosen the logjam and allow energy or chi to circulate properly. The result is that any imbalances you may have can be corrected.

FAQ

Is acupuncture safe?

Yes; your practitioner will utilize single-use disposable (and sterilized) needles minimizing any risk of infection. As acupuncture doesn’t involve surgery or medications, it’s considered one of the safer alternative healing modalities.

How long does a treatment take?

Your treatment may take 30-60 minutes depending on what you’re seeing us for.

What kind of sensation can I expect?

Most people experience a variety of post-session feelings, which range from exhibiting energy to having a deep sense of relaxation and well-being.
