Pain management acupuncture was developed with the understanding of neurology and the functions of muscles.

The first step of treatment with acupuncture is an assessment of which muscles may be contributing to the condition.

Once this is defined, we are able to find the points in which nerves meet those muscles, known as motor points.

When an acupuncture needle is used on a motor point, it causes a twitch response and releases tight contracted bands of muscle – like hitting a reset button on the muscle. This results in pain relief and improved muscle strength.

In addition to traditional needling acupuncture, we use soft tissue therapies including cupping and Gua Sha to relieve pain, increase flexibility and mobility, enhance performance and decrease pain.

We begin with a thorough assessment and combine manual muscle testing and orthopedic testing to create a treatment plan that is tailor-made to your specific condition.

CONDITIONS WE TREAT

Migraine/Headaches

Acupuncture is more than just needles! There are a number of other treatment modalities that can be used to complement your acupuncture treatment to increase effectiveness and help you heal faster


GUA SHA

Gua Sha is a form of Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) that uses a soft-edged tool over the skin to restore circulation in areas of pain and stagnation (including scar tissue or muscle “knots,”). In our practice, Gua Sha is used to relieve pain and emotional tension held in the neck and back, as well as preventing the common cold during a change of seasons. This traditional therapy is just as functional as it is versatile in its healing ability.


CUPPING

Cupping is the application of a special cup to the skin to create a vacuum, pulling up the skin and fascia. The treatment may create large, round, purplish marks like you may have seen on athletes such as Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps. Don’t worry – your body will recycle the iron from the old blood cells that are causing the coloration, and the spots will disappear in about 3 days to a week.

Cups are commonly placed along the neck, shoulders, back, and legs to treat soreness and tension. Cupping is also beneficial for athletes because it accelerates tissue repair, shortening their recovery time. We offer Cupping with Acupuncture or as its own Cupping-Only treatment.


ELCTROACUPUNCTURE

For electroacupuncture (sometimes referred to as e-stim), small clips are used to attach the needles to a device that generates continuous electric pulses.

The frequency and intensity of the impulse can be adjusted, depending on the condition being treated. Different frequencies stimulate the release of different endogenous endorphins, the body’s natural pain killers. Electroacupuncture is frequently used as a form of anesthesia, for muscle spasms, and for neurological disorders.


AURICULAR ACUPUNCTURE

Also known as ear acupuncture, auriculotherapy is a system that uses points on the ear for the diagnosis and treatment of health conditions in other parts of the body.

While frequently used in conjunction with traditional body acupuncture, auriculotherapy can be used independently to relieve pain, stress, and tension.

Four different sensory nerves, the greater auricular, lesser occipital, the auricular branch of the vagus, and auriculotemporal innervate the external ear, and stimulating points on the ear can help regulate sympathetic and parasympathetic tone.
