What is Acupuncture
Acupuncture is a healing method of traditional Chinese medicine system in which symptoms are relieved or cured by the insertion of thin metal needles into selected points on the skin. By stimulating the certain points and meridians on the surface of the body, it can stimulate and balance the body’s vital energy in order to reduce pain, cure disease, increase immunity, etc. Results of research show that the needling activates deep sensory nerves, which cause the pituitary and midbrain to release endorphins – the brain’s natural painkillers and other biologic factors, which heal the body’s diseases and problems. Acupuncture is widely used in the Far East for pain relief, variety of diseases and body mind care.
The acupuncturist should be trained for at least 5 years before they are allowed to practice in China. The theories taught include both of Chinese Medicine and basic of western medicine. Acupuncturists in Alberta are registered as qualified acupuncture practitioner and more and more insurance companies cover acupuncture therapy than before. Many company’s employees have acupuncture insurance benefit. We also can provide direct billing to most insurance companies in Calgary, such as Sun Life, Great West Life, Green Shield, Johnston Group etc.
What is Chinese herbal medicine
Traditional Chinese medicine is very different from the current research approach we are used to. It is based on the promotion of health, which is represented as a balance of yin and yang – two forces that represent the bipolar manifestation of all things in nature. It does not limit its treatment to only one part of the body; instead, generally it is based on the holistic theory. Chinese herbs and acupuncture all belong to Traditional Chinese medicine.
What is Massage Therapy
Massage therapy is manual manipulation of soft body tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons and ligaments) to enhance a person’s health and well-being. There are dozens of types of massage therapy methods (also called modalities).
People seek massage therapy for a variety of reasons – to reduce stress and anxiety, relax muscles, rehabilitate injuries, reduce pain, and promote overall health and wellness. Like acupuncture, Massage therapists in Alberta are registered as qualified massage practitioners and many insurance companies cover massage in Calgary.
