Acupuncture

Your physiotherapist may provide acupuncture as part of your physiotherapy treatment plan – see info on the right side of this page.

Our acupuncturist Elmira Olson practices Traditional Chinese Medicine out of our South Edmonton  location.

Women’s Health

Acupuncture is an effective way to address many of the issues women face throughout life.  From menstrual problems to fertility to pregnancy support to menopause, acupuncture is a medication free way to help regulate your hormones and help you find balance.

Smoking Cessation

Nicotine is a strong addiction – and when you quit smoking, a clear plan with several avenues of support is crucial.   Acupuncture is very beneficial in reducing cravings and addressing the symptoms of withdrawal, as well as reducing the stress involved with quitting.  Acupuncture treatment should begin as soon as you quit or reduce the amount you smoke, and will continue until you no longer need support.

Emotional Well-being

Stress and anxiety commonly affect many of us, often on a day-to-day basis.  Acupuncture calms and relaxes the body to reduce stress levels and anxiety, and reduces the symptoms that are commonly associated with these, such as fatigue, concentration, and mood changes.

Depression affects every aspect of life for those who suffer from it.  Acupuncture is used to treat symptoms associated with depression, and is also helpful to treat the side effects associated with the medications prescribed to treat depression.

Insomnia

Acupuncture can help you to improve your sleep and to maintain better sleeping habits. Regularly maintaining good sleep habits is a very important part of overall health.  If your sleep is poor; memory, immunity, metabolism and pain levels are all affected, as well as increasing the risk of obesity, heart disease, stroke, diabetes and hypertension.

Immune System Support

Your immune system protects your body from infection, and is strongly influenced by your lifestyle and habits.  If you easily catch colds or other infections, your immune system is weakened and needs support.  Acupuncture has been shown to stimulate the body’s immune response, and strengthens your body to improve your resistance to infection.  With acupuncture treatment you can also improve your sleep and your stress levels, both of which contribute to a poor immune system.

Respiratory Issues

Seasonal allergies are an uncomfortable and unwanted aspect of the changing seasons.  Acupuncture can relieve the symptoms of allergies and works to calm your immune system during its heightened response to allergens, allowing you to be less reliant on allergy medications.

Asthma symptoms such as coughing, congestion, shortness of breath, and difficulty breathing can be alleviated with the use of acupuncture.  In many cases these symptoms can be lessened and the frequency of asthma attacks may be reduced.

Headaches and Migraines

Those who suffer from chronic pain due to headaches and migraines are often not very successfully treated with western medication, or are treated with strong medications.  Acupuncture has been shown to decrease pain and duration of migraines and headaches, and with regular treatment to decrease the frequency of headaches.
