Acupuncture has been used for centuries to promote the body’s natural self-healing process. At SW Massage and Wellness Centre we are pleased to offer South Calgary Acupuncture — an ancient form of Chinese Medicine used to help our patients restore their well-being.

Acupuncture Needles | SW Massage Therapy & WellnessHow Does Acupuncture Work?

Tiny needles are used to stimulate specific points found throughout your body; acupuncture works by releasing the body’s blocked energy (Qi), allowing the natural flow and rhythm of this energy to return.

When your energy Qi is not balanced, your well-being is often affected. Factors such as disease, stress, anxiety, fear, poor nutrition, infections or injury all contributed to the disturbance of your energy flow. For us to re-balance your energy, tiny acupuncture needles are placed in specific areas along these meridians to stimulate your nervous system, improve your circulation, and to re-establish your body’s natural and balanced energy flow.
