What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and has a history of more than 3000 years of successfully diagnosing, treating and preventing illness.

Your body is interconnected by meridians and pathways through which vital energy flows. The Acupuncturist inserts very fine, pre-sterilized, disposable (one time use) surgical grade stainless steel needles into specific points along these meridians. This allows your energy flow to be manipulated, aiding in both physical and mental ailments. Modern research has shown that stimulating acupuncture points decreases inflammation, increases endorphins to relieve pain, regulates blood circulation and hormone secretion, and boosts the immune system.

What does acupuncture treat?

It is strange how tiny needles can affect the body so much. The body’s normal response to foreign objects within the skin can create many different reactions which lead to healing a plethora of chronic and acute conditions. The most common health conditions include (as per the World Health Organization):

DON WENSRICH

Don is a Registered Acupuncturist with 21 years of experience. He apprenticed under Japanese acupuncturist Yas Inaba, and has completed a Medical Acupuncturist program at the Alberta College of Acupuncture.

The focus of Don’s practice is to encourage people to truly experience their lives - without judgement or resistance, and with an open heart and mind. His journey in natural healing has taught him that acceptance opens the door to healing. When there is stress and conflict, whether physical or emotional, healing is inhibited and the body’s innate power to rebalance becomes inaccessible. Don uses acupuncture and quantum sound therapy as tools to release blockages and allow fluidity in the body, mind, and soul.

Don actively seeks out ways to find peace and healing in his own life - through meditation, learning opportunities, time with family, and by being in his own moments! You will find Don is a gifted, intelligent, and understanding practitioner willing to help you unlock your own potential.
