About Acupuncture

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a complete system of medicine and one of the oldest continuous healing practices. It has effectively treated many common health conditions for the last 2,500 years and has successfully adapted and merged with Western medicine.  For this reason, TCM is commonly used by millions of people all over the world.

Today clinical trials and modern biomedicine are continuously proving its timeless effective treatment for a great range of physical and emotional conditions.

Acupuncture is mostly known for its treatment of pain.  However, Acupuncture is medicine that is able to treat the whole body.  This means that when you visit Bow Valley Acupuncture for your pain, I can treat other health conditions at the same time. 

In addition to treating your pain or immediate problem you will also experience increased energy, improved sleep and relaxation.

Acupuncture Treats Endless Conditions

Acupuncture can treat a range of conditions, many of which may not have a Western diagnosis.  It is common to feel “not yourself” or have one or two health concerns and then being frustrated with receiving no clear diagnosis or treatment for it.

Symptoms such as pain, insomnia or indigestion are signs of an imbalance.  Acting on those signs is important in preventing their progression into a chronic health issue.

If you have a condition or a Western diagnosis that you are currently being treated for, Acupuncture is extremely safe to incorporate into your treatment plan.  The beauty of Chinese Medicine, the oldest existing medical system, is that is universally applicable and unceasingly flexible.  Acupuncture can help alleviate your symptoms, reduce your medication and increase your quality of life.

Because Acupuncture works by balancing the whole body you will experience a number of benefits from your treatment in conjunction with treating your main complaint; increased energy, improved sleep, relaxation and emotional balance.

A list of conditions Acupuncture commonly treats is provided throughout this website.  If you don’t see your diagnosis or symptom – don’t despair, Acupuncture can treat endless conditions and symptoms.
