Acupuncture: What Is It & How Can It Help?

Acupuncture is a type of health science that uses the insertion of very thin needles into certain parts of the body or “acupoints” to treat pain and dysfunction. It is a traditional Chinese treatment that has been in use for about 5,000 to 7,000 years. Acupuncture is believed to work with energies of the body that influence various systems of the body. When these energies are blocked or weakened, acupuncture is believed to stimulate that energy and restore harmony to the affected area. Some conditions that acupuncture may help include, but are not limited to:

  • Acute or chronic pain
  • Migraines
  • Bladder dysfunctions
  • Neck pain
  • Mid-back pain
  • Skin conditions
  • Asthma
  • Fatigue
  • Shoulder pain
  • Knee pain
  • Heel spurs
  • Tennis elbow
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Thumb problems
  • Carpal tunnel
  • Numbness/tingling
  • Vertigo
  • Allergies
  • Sinus issues
  • Menstrual cycle
  • Infertility

Are Acupuncture Treatments Painful?

Different patients may experience different sensations during acupuncture. However, acupuncture needles are very small and many people describe being pricked by one as feeling similar to a mosquito bite.

How Much Does an Acupuncture Treatment Cost?

The cost of an acupuncture treatment varies depending on what part of the province you are in. On average, the cost of an acupuncture treatment can be anywhere from $60.00 to $100.00 per treatment.
