Pain and Chronic Conditions
HOW CAN ACUPUNCTURE HELP?
Regular acupuncture treatments can reduce pain over time by improving blood flow and healing, supporting the release of our body's natural pain killers (endorphins), and loosening tense or restricted muscles to allow for better circulation and healing. It is essential to have primary care for chronic or acute pain management, such as your doctor, surgeon or other health practitioner. However, acupuncture can be an incredible addition to regular care, helping to speed up healing and reduce reliance on prescription medications.
Typically 4-8 treatments are required to address chronic or acute pain, with Electroacupuncture and cupping to support the healing process. After an initial course of weekly or 2/weekly treatments, monthly or biweekly maintenance treatments are an excellent option for longterm pain reduction.

Pain can start with a specific injury (sports, work-related, home life) or very commonly sneak up over time due to work conditions, poor posture or other aspect of daily life. Other people are affected by a condition (rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, TMJ, etc) through no fault of their own that can cause great discomfort and pain. It can affect our lives profoundly, making it difficult to manage even the basic necessities, as well as impacting our mental and emotional health and relationships.
