Acupuncture is known to be a powerful solution for pain. It works on all pain, from localized pain due to injury or degeneration to all over pain of unknown origin. This is because of how acupuncture works, and how pain works. Simply put, acupuncture unblocks blockages in the body, and where there is pain there is blockage. So an acupuncture treatment, by definition, works on pain, even if you are getting a treatment for depression or fertility. A pain acupuncture treatment however is specifically directed towards pain, and to the specific pain being treated. Pain is one of the main specialties of our clinic and we use acupuncture along with other methods such as cupping and electo-acupuncture as well as Chinese herbal formulas to enhance the treatment. Acupuncture usually works pretty fast, and most patients will get significant pain reduction as soon as after their first treatment. All patients, and all conditions are unique as are results. We usually suggest a series of 3 treatments and after the 3rd treatment a reassessment. For any more questions or to set up a complementary consultation or appointment call Monte at (804) 754-5108.
