a: when i moved to canada i got my acupuncture licence and i’ve been working as an acupuncturist here. i was working in a clinic in saskatoon, but i wanted the ability to serve more people. that’s why i decided to open my own clinic in the last year. so i am doing different types of acupuncture — laser acupuncture, traditional acupuncture, cupping and we have a nutritionist in my clinic. this helps to give better results because of acupuncture and a healthy diet.
a: acupuncture is a treatment for most health and wellness issues. it aims to balance the energy and blood flow throughout the body. acupuncture is part of traditional chinese medicine. it’s an alternative medicine with single use needles to stimulate acupuncture points, which increases the blood flow and causes a release of endorphins and serotonin into the body which helps remove inflammation and pain. for different people and different health issues, we choose different acupoints for the needles. the combination of points are very, very important.
a: acupuncture is used for migraines, muscle and body aches, depression, anxiety, addiction, tennis elbow, frozen shoulder, lumbago, osteoarthritis, fatigue, circulatory problems, ingestion issues, insomnia, sinusitis, sciatica and many more issues. it will also help with weight gain and weight loss.
a: laser acupuncture is done with low-level lasers, also known as “cold lasers”, as they don’t produce any heat. compared to traditional chinese acupuncture, it’s new. the laser is for people who don’t want to use the needles or for people who are very sensitive to the needles. we use a laser for a few minutes. it’s not invasive and it’s safe.
a: some people will feel a little bit of a pinch when the needles go in. but then when they have the needle, they feel comfortable. i have lots of patients that fall asleep during the treatment.
a: our mission is to help you become the healthiest version of yourself. i also have a nutritionist and an esthetician on staff. i want to help people to be more healthy and happy.
a: for their first treatment, we prefer people to call and book. but after their first treatment, people can book their appointments online .
