Tap into Your Body’s Healing Resources

Living with pain is a limiting and frustrating experience. Luckily, acupuncture is an incredibly effective option for treating many different pain conditions.

Acupuncture helps to reduce inflammation, promote muscle relaxation and improve circulation to stimulate your body’s innate healing resources and relieve pain. It offers a natural, non-invasive and drug-free approach to pain management, making it a preferred choice for those seeking alternatives to medication or hoping to avoid surgery as a first option.

Treatment for pain at EarthSong Acupuncture isn’t a one size fits all approach. Just like every other imbalance in the body, traditional Chinese medicine recognizes that each person’s specific conditions are unique to them and that there are often several contributing factors.

Acupuncture for Acute and Chronic Pain.

Acupuncture can effectively treat a wide variety of pain including musculoskeletal (knee pain, shoulder pain, low back pain), visceral (abdominal or period pain) or pain associated with chronic disease such as fibromyalgia or rheumatoid arthritis. While it addresses each individual’s specific symptoms, acupuncture also addresses the fatigue and emotional components that often accompany pain as well as any underlying imbalances to promote whole body wellness.

In my clinic I use a wide range of therapeutic modalities to address pain dependent on the individual’s needs. In a typical treatment, you might experience acupuncture, moxibustion, cupping, therapeutic massage, e-stim (electrical stimulation of needles), red-light therapy, or gua sha. Each treatment is customized to treat your specific type of pain most effectively.
