Acupuncture is based on the Chinese principle of Qi (pronounced ‘chee’), which is the life force that regulates a person’s physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Targeting the meridians, the ‘highways’ in which Qi flows, can help alleviate symptoms of painful conditions.
Let’s get you on the path to complete physical and mental health.
We combine the wisdom of Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture in Calgary with a modernized approach, treating the person as a whole, not as a set of symptoms. By administering essential testing and diagnostics assessments, we can determine the root cause of your symptoms and illnesses before applying TCM and Acupuncture practices to imbalanced biological functions in your body. These practices restore dysfunctional systems, energize cells and tissues, and enhance your body’s natural healing process, encouraging and maintaining better health.
Traditional Chinese Medicine, or TCM, is an ancient holistic approach to treating acute and chronic conditions. Based upon the Chinese principle of Qi – the life-force that maintains and affects a person’s physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being – TCM combines the use of herbs, nutrition, physical therapy, such as massage, cupping and Acupuncture, to provide relief and prevent acute and chronic health conditions.
Both TCM and Functional Medicine and even Naturopathy, are based on viewing the body as a whole, focusing on the interconnecting systems – genetics, social factors and environments – and how they influence your health and well-being. However, Functional and Naturopathic Medicine uses Western medical testing and assessments to uncover the root causes of symptoms, establishing a treatment plan that improves and maintains better health while preventing symptoms. TCM and Acupuncture can be part of the multidisciplinary treatment approach that encourages complete health.
There are very few side effects of Acupuncture treatments. In most cases, you’ll experience fatigue, soreness, and bruising. You might also be more emotional after the treatment.
