Acupuncture in Vancouver
Integrating eastern therapies and western technologies to promote healing and vitality.
What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture sends information into your body through specific points that prompt your cells to regain balance and homeostasis to restore health and well-being.
Traditional acupuncture is a technique that places extremely fine needles into your skin at strategic spots on your body. Laser acupuncture is a non-invasive, pain-free, light-based therapy that uses red and infrared light to target acupuncture points as a traditional needle would. It also has the benefit of stimulating ATP (cellular energy) production, thereby accelerating the healing process on a cellular level.
We offer both traditional (needle) acupuncture and laser acupuncture (LLLT). If you have a fear of needles please let us know and we can focus on laser acupuncture in your sessions. Additionally, acupuncture can include or be replaced by methods like cupping, gua sha, and tui na (Chinese medical massage) which are all highly effective, non-invasive techniques.
Acupuncture Helps to Treat a Wide Variety of Ailments:
Fertility & IVF Acupuncture to Optimize Your Success
Many people chose to have acupuncture treatments leading up to IVF and at the time of an embryo transfer. Acupuncture has been shown to be beneficial in treating fertility in men and women as well as relieving stress. Acupuncture may:
- Improve pregnancy rates during in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment cycle
- Increase blood flow to the uterus, leading to improved endometrial lining
- Reduce stress hormones
- Balance hormones related to ovulation and improve ovulation rates for women with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)
