Pain Management

Are you suffering from acute or chronic pain? Have you tried treating your pain with painkillers, hot baths, massages or more but are still struggling to find lasting relief?

Chinese medicine is renowned for effectively treating short term pain and reducing longer term inflammation. This ancient healing practice understands that pain is both physical and neurological, so couples treatments to address both when needed. Pain is, however, very unique to the individual and, all too often, similar conditions and diseases present differently between patients. For this reason, our practice focuses on developing individualized treatment plans for your specific symptoms and experience of pain.

Our process aligns your unique experience with our herbal medicines and therapies, like acupuncture, cupping, e-stim, guasha and tuina bodywork, to find the right combination to relieve your specific type of pain. For example, therapies like guasha, tuina, and cupping tend to work extremely well on musculoskeletal pain, while e-stim and acupuncture are equally effective on both musculoskeletal and neurological pain. Acupuncture and cupping, in particular, are extremely effective at treating pain because they have the ability to break the neurological feedback loops that cause pain to become chronic. Additionally, acupuncture has clinically-proven benefits on neuroplasticity, the ability of the brain to change patterns and pathways, giving hope to chronic pain sufferers.
