Acupuncture in Calgary SE

Acupuncture is an ancient healing method that uses very fine needles placed at specific points on the body to balance the flow of energy or “chi.” This form of alternative medicine addresses health systemically, rather than focusing on symptoms as separate issues. At Douglasdale Family Chiropractic, we are pleased to offer the traditional form of this healing modality to help you achieve optimal health.

How to Prepare for Your Session

We recommend you drink plenty of water before and after your session. Wear comfortable clothing, and if you’d like to listen to your own music, feel free to bring headphones.

Dr. Liu will talk with you about any health issues, concerns and goals you have. To ensure you have the best experience possible, we encourage you to let us know if you have any questions or reservations—some people are nervous about the needles, for example. The needles used are very fine, about the diameter of a human hair, and most people don’t feel anything when they’re placed.

Auto Accidents

Acupuncture is a covered service for injuries sustained in a car accident, and we will direct bill for that. Along with chiropractic and massage, this form of Traditional Chinese medicine can help resolve motor vehicle accident injuries now, as well as prevent them from causing permanent damage that causes bigger problems later on.
