Acupuncture is an alternative treatment modality and one of the oldest disciplines of traditional Chinese medicine. First introduced in North America sometime in the early 1800s and gaining widespread notice in the second half of the 20th century, acupuncture continues to grow in popularity. Today many conventionally-trained medical practitioners recognize its value as a complementary therapy to western medicine. An Acupuncture treatment focuses on stimulating strategic points in the body, most often with very fine needles, to relieve pain and help treat underlying conditions.

At The Clinic YYC we embrace the benefits of combining ancient Eastern medicine with advanced chiropractic care to provide patients with an effective, long-lasting, and holistic approach to wellness. Our trusted Acupuncture partners are a valued asset to our team and our collaborative health care model.

Why Choose Acupuncture?

The traditional Chinese philosophy is that your energy, or life force, flows along pathways within your body. Needles inserted at precise points along your energy channels can balance and enhance your energy flow. Western medical practitioners who integrate acupuncture into their more conventional treatments see acupuncture points as strategic positions to stimulate connective tissues, nerves, and muscles. Contemporary acupuncture practice may leverage pressure, heat, or electrical current to enhance the benefits of acupuncture. Acupuncture is safe and effective, with very minimal side effects. This complementary therapy at The Clinic YYC is an excellent option for patients who want to avoid medication and invasive interventions.

Acupuncture FAQs

Acupuncture needles are single-use and sterile needles. Your provider uses an alcohol solution to clean the skin at the insertion point before the needle is used and each needle is placed into an approved container for safe disposal after use.

The short answer is no. Acupuncture needles are as thin as human hair. Depending on the insertion point (if there is inflammation or aggravation present) you may feel a very slight pinch or poke as the needle goes in. Once the needle is in you can't feel it.

The body has over 2200 acupoints. The comprehensive assessment you will receive on your first visit to The Clinic YYC gives our acupuncturist the insight needed to optimize stimulation through this large number of acupoints to relieve your pain and restore balance, thereby improving physical health and mental well-being.
