If you have been suffering from chronic pain for some time now, then we would like to point out that acupuncture can relieve pain, as well as promote an overall feeling of well being including better sleep.
Although widely accepted in Canada, many people still don’t know how acupuncture works and how it can benefit the body.
How Acupuncture Works:
Acupuncture basically improves the overall functionality of the body and also promotes natural self-healing. It does this by by stimulating specific acupuncture points (acupoints). This is done through a worldwide practice of inserting tiny sterile needles into the skin. Other acupoint stimulation techniques include moxibustion, seeding, and cupping.
Ancient Chinese Medicine believes that the universe and the body are two opposing forces: yin and yang. When the yin and yang are in balance, the body is healthy. Energy in the body called “qi” (pronounced “chee”) will flow along certain pathways, often called meridians, and keep the yin and yang forces balanced. But if this flow of energy becomes blocked somehow it can often lead to pain or illness. By seeing a local acupuncturist, he will schedule you in for an acupuncture appointment where the blocked qi will be released. In only a few shorts sessions, you will be back on your feet enjoying life as you once did.
Depending on where you life in Alberta, there may be a couple local acupuncture specialists who can help with your chronic pain. The acupuncturist will be able to diagnose your condition and recommend a proper acupuncture treatment plan to fix your particular painful condition.
Your local Red Deer acupuncture clinic will begin by getting you to lay down comfortably on an acupuncture table. The acupuncturist will then analyze your condition by placing tiny acupuncture needles at various areas in the body, usually where the pain resides. Most people do not feel any discomfort as the very fine needles are gently placed in the skin, often feeling light a mosquito bite. Once the needles are retained for between ten and 30 minutes, the needles are taken out and the patient reports that they are feeling much better and very relaxed.
