FAQ About Acupuncture
The six main questions associated with acupuncture treatment are:
- What is acupuncture?
- How does it work?
- Does it hurt?
- Are the needles sterile and clean?
- What conditions does acupuncture treat?
- How many treatments will I need?
Our Calgary acupuncture experts answer these questions in part on our website, however, feel free to schedule a consultation with our team to discuss them in detail. Our facility’s Dr. David He is highly knowledgeable in treating musculoskeletal, motor system, and neurological issues using acupuncture. He and his team would love to sit down with you to talk about treatment.
Acupuncture for Pain Management

Consider acupuncture as your first line of defense against ongoing pain and the difficulties it poses on everyday life.

You can see a complete list of conditions we typically treat at Chestermere Lifepath Wellness by clicking the ‘Acupuncture’ link on our homepage. If you don’t see your condition on the list, feel free to reach out to our staff by phone to inquire as to the effectiveness of acupuncture for your particular condition.
Does Acupuncture Hurt?
Patients most often want to know what treatments feel like and, most commonly, whether the needles hurt. The fact is, treatments are not entirely void of sensation, however, ‘pain’ is rarely used to describe the treatment experience. Most patients refer to the feeling as a tingling sensation, followed by tremendous relaxation once treatment has ended.
Best of all, when practiced by a professional Calgary acupuncture specialist, treatments are extremely safe; in fact, there is no danger whatsoever from having treatments performed. Like many patients, you may experience benefits after the very first treatment, however, with acupuncture, you’ll most likely notice the full benefits after about six treatments.
