Acupuncture for Pain  

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine Therapy are used in  pain therapy with very good results. 

Back pain, neck and shoulder pain, joint pain and  sciatica respond well to a combination of acupuncture, acupressure massage, special heat therapy and fire cupping. 

But how can a tiny needle reduce pain and speed up the body's own healing power?

Acupuncture is based on the traditional Chinese teaching that energy, (Qi 'chee') , runs through the body along channels called meridians; pain occurs when that flow is disrupted. The insertion of acupuncture needles into designated acupuncture points speeds the conduction of electromagnetic signals within the body. These signals increase the flow of endorphins and other pain-relieving chemicals. 


Pain may be described as
  • shooting 
  • burning
  • aching
  • electrical
  • discomfort 
  • soreness
  • tightness 
  • stiffness.
