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.
