Chances are you’re familiar with acupuncture, sometimes referred to as acutherapy – the famous and internationally renowned treatment credited with pain relief and other symptom alleviators. But what exactly is it? It is a Chinese acutherapy practice which – you guessed it – originated in China thousands of years ago. From there, acupuncture gained popularity around the world until eventually acupuncture in Calgary became available. It is the practice of inserting needles into targeted areas of the body which enable and promote the flow of energy and blood. The areas in which needles are inserted are known as acupoints which are part of channels called meridians (similar to the circulatory system), which according to Chinese acutherapy corrects imbalances in the flow of qi (the energy and life force in the body).
Acutherapy is known to provide pain relief to patients suffering from temporary or chronic pain disorders as well as treat the symptoms and syndromes of a large amount of disorders. Some examples of this involve back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, and other areas of the body. But that is just the tip of the iceberg regarding what acupuncture can help treat. Other disorders treatable by acutherapy include nausea, anxiety disorders, constipation, stress-induced fatigue, vertigo, the common cold, the common flu, headaches, infertility and others. The list goes on. Acupuncture is popular in treating a very wide range of problems, but its most commonly used to offer pain relief.
Acupuncture is a drug-free treatment option for a host of problems – luckily it’s available in Calgary!
