Acupuncture for Chronic Pain Relief and Management
Clinical studies show that Acupuncture is an effective treatment for pain, including neck and back pain, headaches, menstrual pain, fibromyalgia, and facial pain. Acupuncture is a natural, non-invasive form of therapy that can effectively treat both acute and chronic pain, without concern that pain medications can cause dependency, rebound pain and/or side effects.
Traditional Chinese Medicine views pain differently than Western Medicine. According to TCM, the body is made up of meridians, or natural pathways of energy. When meridians become blocked, through overuse, bad posture, trauma, poor lifestyle habits, and sickness, pain and dysfunction occur. If nothing is done to correct the blockage, the pain issue endures and the body progresses into a state of imbalance. Acupuncture can be used to release these blockages to free Qi flow in the energy channels and restore balance back to the body.
