Pain Management With Traditional Chinese Medicine
Our approach to pain management stems from extensive research into the various mechanisms of pain pathways. We understand no two pain conditions we treat are alike and approach each case as such. Patients can expect to be thoroughly evaluated for both subjective and objective symptoms. The goal here is to tailor your treatment – acupuncture/cupping/dry-needling – to ensure long-lasting pain relief.
Dry needling acupuncture, electric stimulation acupuncture, and cupping are effective in treating:
- migraines and headaches,
- menstrual cramps,
- low back pain and sciatica,
- stenosis and disc disorders,
- arthritis and joint pain,
- muscle pain,
- neck pain,
- tennis elbow,
- carpal tunnel syndrome,
- new & old sports injuries,
- nerve pain,
Neurological Conditions We Treat
Electric stimulation (e-stim) acupuncture stimulates the nerve in a way that regulates the entire pathway. When a nerve is being obstructed by inflammation or swelling of the surrounding tissues, acupuncture treatment can help flush the area. When a nerve is being obstructed by inflammation or swelling of the surrounding tissues, acupuncture can help flush the area. Bell’s Palsy, trigeminal neuralgia, TMJ, essential tremor, post-stroke rehab, and many more nerve-based conditions benefit greatly from acupuncture with electric stimulation.

Upper Respiratory Conditions
In TCM Acupuncture the lung is considered a vital organ that regulates the body’s immune system. When the lung is strong the body can fight off external pathogens. When the lung is imbalanced symptoms might include COPD, cough, asthma, allergies, phlegm, chest pain, bloating, loss of voice, nasal congestion, impaired sense of smell, nosebleeds, and a weak and/or horses voice.
Acupuncture is effective for the condition we treat as it releases various endorphins that relax the lungs and vasodilate the airways improving the lung’s ability to bring in sufficient air and strengthen lung tissue.
During intake, we discover a lot about the various concerns patients have with regard to digestion. Issues like acid reflux, GERD, digestive pain, indigestion, and gas & bloating can all be addressed with acupuncture. The nervous system plays a tremendous role in digestion, by stimulating certain areas of the body, we can strengthen and even completely regulate digestion.

This is by far a broad subject matter. We usually incorporate some aspect of wellness treatment in every case. We address a patient’s level of stress, the quality of their sleep, their digestion and elimination, any established diagnosis, and for the ladies, we determine where they are in their cycle. This information is key to understanding what may or may not contribute to their primary complaint and treat accordingly. We form a close relationship with our patients by carefully personalizing acupuncture treatment to their specific needs to deal with their pain or disorder.
