Living with the pain of rheumatoid arthritis for 20 years, Tanya had tried virtually everything to find relief. It was all in vain until she discovered the ancient practice of acupuncture.

“After one visit I’m happy to say I have full range of motion pain-free. It has changed my mind on this type of therapy,” she wrote to registered practitioner Ning Li, of Red Deer Acupuncture & Chinese Herbal Clinic in Alberta, one of a handful of provinces that currently regulates acupuncture.

Diagnosed with autoimmune disease, Joerg’s quality of life and ability to work deteriorated rapidly due to pain, nausea and malaise. Faced with a medical treatment whose side-effects were worse than the symptoms, Joerg discovered the Traditional Chinese Medicine combination of acupuncture and herbal treatments.

“My energy levels are back to normal and the pain is getting less and less. Mr. Li has demonstrated diagnostic and treatment skill and is an excellent practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine. His treatments have significantly improved my quality of life and I highly recommend him to anyone,” Joerg writes.

What is acupuncture?

Tanya and Joerg aren’t alone. According to a 2016 Insights West poll, 30 per cent of Canadians reported using acupuncture.

The therapy within Traditional Chinese Medicine involves inserting ultra-fine needles at strategic points on the body to trigger specific results and stimulate the body’s natural ability to heal. The not-for-profit Acupuncture Canada notes that performed by a trained practitioner, acupuncture is a safe therapy with few adverse effects.

Based on generations of wisdom and experience, the practice can offer considerable relief to those suffering from a variety of conditions, including:

  • Sciatica
  • Arthritis
  • Neck and back stiffness
  • Migraine
  • Depression
  • Sleep problems
  • Menstrual pain
  • Eczema
  • Tennis elbow
  • Multiple sclerosis

“Many of our clients come to us because they are struggling to feel their best,” says Li, a registered Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner and acupuncturist. “We feel so privileged to be able to help them.”

Joining Li at his practice is his wife and licensed massage therapist Yan Qi. The complementary practices work together in the holistic treatment of the patient, a cornerstone of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

“Working together, we can give our patients more treatment options and help them more,” Li says.


Red Deer Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Clinic offers professional acupuncture, massage and herbal solutions to address a wide range of patient concerns.
