Acupuncture

All new patients are provided ample time to discuss their condition and recommended treatment plan.  Your initial treatment is fully explained, all questions are welcome and your comfort is paramount.

Through a course of treatments your progress is closely monitored and often diet therapy, lifestyle modifications and Chinese Herbal Medicine are incorporated to facilitate your progress.

An Acupuncture treatment may also include the following therapeutic modalities:

  • Cupping
  • Tui Na Massage
  • Auricular Therapy
  • TDP Lamp Therapy
  • Moxibustion
  • Electro-Acupuncture

Bow Valley Acupuncture also offers several special Acupuncture treatments and packages, please visit our Bookings page for more information.

Cupping

Cupping by a Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner is used for several therapeutic reasons and is extremely popular for muscle pain and tension.

A cupping treatment is wonderful for people who do not like needles and need some muscle release and for people who have limited time (treatments are 30 mins).

Most people find cupping to be a completely relaxing experience.

Cosmetic Acupuncture

Carefully selected points and techniques are used to target muscles and aging skin to eliminate lines, reduce wrinkles and tone the skin.

I use all-natural Chinese herbal poultices and Chinese herbal masks suited to your skin type and needs, along with anti-aging organic serums and the highly prized ancient beauty secret, Pearl Powder!

Acupuncture for your health and wellbeing is incorporated into all of your treatments.  This added holistic approach treats underlying health conditions and lifestyle factors that may be accelerating your natural aging process.

Cosmetic Microneedling

Cosmetic Microneedling is a fast growing form of anti-aging beauty therapy.  This is because it is a non-invasive drug free treatment that has proven to greatly induce collagen production and increase transdermal absorption of beneficial anti-aging facial skin products.  Significant increases in collagen production and transdermal absorption together produce real long lasting results.

Acupuncture for your health and wellbeing is incorporated into all of your treatments.  This added holistic approach treats underlying health conditions and lifestyle factors that may be accelerating your natural aging process.

No-Needle Acupuncture

Receive the benefit of Acupuncture without the penetration of needles.

The Pa-Chi Stimulator is perfect for first time patients and children.  The Pa-Chi Stimulator stimulates Acupuncture points comfortably by releasing a single electric pulse from a piezo crystal.

Chinese Herbal Medicine

Chinese herbal therapy is commonly used both for the treatment of a wide variety of medical conditions and in the optimization of health and prevention of disease.

Chinese herbal formulas are beautiful and powerful as they are combined synergistically into formulas, designed specifically for both your medical condition and individual constitution.

Acupuncture treatments are best combined with Chinese herbs.  They enhance the effects of Acupuncture and provide continued therapy between your Acupuncture treatments.

However, Chinese herbal formulas can also be taken on their own, making them a very convenient alternative form of therapy.
