Our Approach to Acupuncture

We use the wisdom of 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 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Functional Medicine and 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. 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. We can explain the potential effects in more depth during our consultation.
