Acupuncture for Arthritis

The use of acupuncture to relieve pain is well established in America. In fact, it is the most common use of acupuncture outside of China, today. Modern medical technology has revealed that the insertion of acupuncture needles causes measurable physiological changes like the release of pain-relieving beta-endorphins in surrounding tissue. However, the effects of such treatments are often short-lived if the root cause of the pain is not treated.For patients suffering from arthritis, whether it is arthritis of the knee, hip, shoulder, hand or back, we aim to treat the body as a whole, and not just focus on treating the obvious symptoms. The majority of our arthritis patients suffer from rheumatoid arthritis or psoriatic arthritis (arthropathic psoriasis), which are  autoimmune disorders. Hence, our treatments not only focus on controlling the painful symptoms of arthritis, but also on balancing the immune system. The majority of our patients see immediate results in just a few treatments and experience positive long term benefits. Depending on the specific situation, we may recommend traditional acupuncture or a combination of acupuncture and exercise in accordance with our acupuncture philosophy.

Acupuncture for Backpain

 For many people, backpain is temporary and will often get better with time. For the rest, back pain may be a chronic disease that prevents the pursuit of a normal life. The advantage of using acupuncture to treat back pain is that acupuncture not only relieves the pain temporarily, but in many cases, it can also effectively treat the root cause of the pain. In this way, acupuncture can benefit even those who suffer from severe, chronic back pain.Depending on the cause and severity of the pain, and the overall health of the patient, we will develop a treatment plan consisting of traditional acupuncture or a combination of acupuncture and exercises in accordance with our acupuncture philosophy. Many of our patients see immediate results, increased mobility, and less pain in just several treatments. 

Acupuncture for Headaches Migraines

 Headaches and migraines come in many different flavors. Acupuncture, even when performed by the novice practitioner, is effective in providing temporary relief from the common symptoms of headaches and migraines. However, in order to provide lasting relief, the overall health of the body and the root cause of the headaches must be elucidated. Headaches and migraines  can be caused by something as benign as a tense neck or by something much more insidious, such as a hormone imbalance. In our years of experience we have treated a wide array of headache and pain related disorders and our patients typically see results in just a few sessions.

Acupuncture for Depression

 Many clinical studies have shown that acupuncture is significantly effective in treating depression (see below for links to journal articles). Because the cause of many cases of depression is rooted in hormonal imbalance and dysfunction, acupuncture is particularly well-suited as a treatment method, as acupuncture has been scientifically proven to be able to regulate and alter the levels of many different hormones in the body.We focus not only on treating the multitude of symptoms of depression, but we also aim to improve the overall health of the body and to treat its root cause. Such an approach means that we must examine each individual carefully and tailor every treatment to the patient. Our methods integrate the knowledge and techniques passed down through generations of practioners in China and have given us a powerful tool in helping our patients overcome depression through a safe modality without the drawbacks of toxic side-effects.  

Acupuncture for Asthma

At its core, asthma is an immune disorder. The main symptoms of asthma, wheezing and shortness of breath, are manifestations of the body's immune response to pathogens found in the environment. Our experience has shown us that in the majority of asthma cases, the patient has an imbalanced immune system. Thus, our treatments focus on balancing and strengthening the immune system. Many patients report significant, lasting benefits in just a few sessions of treatment.Acupuncture has also been shown to have beneficial effects on the primary symptoms of asthma. It can improve pulmonary function and lessen the severity of asthma attacks. Depending on the specific situation, we may recommend traditional acupuncture or a combination of acupuncture and exercise in accordance with our acupuncture philosophy. We urge you to read through the patient testimonials and related research and if you have any questions, feel free to contact us! 

Acupuncture for Stopping / Quitting Smoking

 Typically, 1 week of treatment consisting of 3 acupuncture sessions will completely eliminate nicotine cravings.The role of acupuncture in nicotine cessation isn't limited to reducing cravings. Acupuncture has also been proven to promote relaxation and better sleep. Moreover, acupuncture can be used to treat many disorders associated with smoking, such as damage to the bronchopulmonary and cardiovascular systems and the symptoms from nicotine withdrawal. In our experience, the effectiveness of acupuncture varies with many factors, including the length of time the patient has been smoking, their overall health, and the frequency of treatment. In many cases, we will also use auricular (ear) acupuncture to help the patient retain the effects of acupuncture between treatments.
