Acupuncture

Acupuncture is an ancient form of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It involves the insertion of fine sterile disposable needles into selected acupuncture points of the body. These points are located along channels of energy, called meridians, which run through the body and over its surface. Meridians are like rivers flowing through the body to irrigate and nourish the tissues. An obstruction in the movement of these rivers is like a dam that backs up into others causing symptoms, pain and disease.


Sarah Gandey is a Registered Acupuncturist at BodyTx Massage, Acupuncture and Health, and has completed additional training at the Beijing Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine. She is also accredited with a Physical & Occupational Therapy Assistant Diploma and specializes in fertility, women's health, and sports medicine.

Acupuncture Points

Acupuncture points are located on areas of the skin that have a lower resistance to the passage of electricity than surrounding tissue and they make up a complete network system similar to the nervous system.

Acupuncture is used to promote the body's natural healing, improve mood and energy, reduce or relieve pain and improve function of affected areas of the body. Acupuncture is a safe and effective therapy and can give relief when traditional medical therapy has failed.

Acupuncture Needles

Acupuncture needles are very fine, flexible and sharp at the tip. They are very different from a hypodermic needle (these are used for injections, etc) as they do not have a cutting edge which slices through tissue. Acupuncture needles are designed to glide through tissues and makes them unlikely to cause bleeding or damage to underlying structures.

Fort Saskatchewan, Acupuncture, fertility

Acupuncture is a very effective treatment in conjunction with fertility treatments. It can treat conditions that can interfere with getting pregnant (such as endometriosis) or increase the chances of successful assisted fertility treatments. Acupuncture can also help lower overall stress levels, which can help increase fertility hormones like progesterone. Sarah has had numerous success stories with her acupuncture treatments!

KinesioTaping

I have suffered with extreme back pain from being a massage therapist for 8 years. After seeing Sarah for acupuncture she was able to give me immediate relief. Her professionalism and extensive knowledge and passion for her practice is above par. I recommend every person combine Massage Therapy with acupuncture with Sarah!

M. R., Acupuncture Client, April 2017


I can be 100% honest when I say I was not sure about the acupuncture process and the health benefits it could bring. Not only did Sarah ease my mind about the acupuncture process and the needles, but she really assisted me in some trouble areas of my back and neck. Before Sarah's help I really struggled with sleep and keeping up with my preferred physical activities including hockey and ball. Now that I have been going to acupuncture on a regular basis, I have been sleeping better and have been able to get back into my regular hockey and ball routine without worry of pain and sleepless nights.

J. R., Acupuncture Client, April 2017


I've been seeing Sarah now for well over a year due to fertility issues and headaches. I was getting ready to do my last IVF cycle using a surrogate when I found out I was pregnant, naturally. I strongly believe that seeing Sarah regularly not only decreased my stress level, but was one of the main reasons I fell pregnant!

My daily headaches are now gone. I am so thankful and still see Sarah monthly, and for the most part have had a stress free and relaxing pregnancy!
