About Acupuncture In Downtown Calgary

Acupuncture is the insertion of needles into specific anatomical points (acupuncture points) to encourage natural healing. Therapeutic effects include:

  • Pain relief
  • Increased energy
  • Improved mood
  • Improved body function

Acupuncture stimulates the balance and flow of Qi energy that in traditional Chinese Medicine is considered essential to health. When the body is healthy, Qi (pronounced chee), flows smoothly through the meridians that make up a conceptual network of pathways throughout the entire body. When the balance or flow of Qi is deficient or obstructed, it may be diseased or susceptible to illness. Acupuncture treats both the symptoms and the root causes of the patient’s illness.

Acupuncture is an ancient, safe and effective treatment. It can reduce pain by stimulating the brain and spinal cord to produce natural pain-relieving chemicals such as endorphins, melatonin (which promotes sleep) and serotonin (to promote well-being.) These chemicals assist the body’s healing processes and offer pain relief. Therapists at Fifth Avenue have taken postgraduate training at the University of Alberta or the Acupuncture Foundation of Canada to be certified in Acupuncture.

Frequently Asked Questions

How often should I get acupuncture?

The amount of treatment depends on the condition being treated. For acute conditions such as back pain, it is best to receive it frequently in a short period of time. For chronic conditions, we recommend that you average two visits a week depending on severity.

Will my insurance cover the treatment?

Generally our treatments are covered by most major health plans but coverage varies by plan and provider. We suggest contacting your service provider for a full description on your coverage.

Will acupuncture hurt?

Contrary to popular belief, many people do not feel pain. However, some sort of sensation will almost certainly be felt.
