Pain of all types can be addressed with acupuncture

Studies have shown that when acupuncture is administered, parts of the brain associated with pain management are ‘lit up,’ showing the positive effects of acupuncture on certain pain receptors. It has also been shown that acupuncture reduces site specific inflammation and brings blood flow to painful areas, aiding in faster recovery.

A full health history and an in depth look at the characteristics of the pain are performed to determine the best approach to treatment. At this point, we can advise whether acupuncture and/or bodywork are called for. We typically suggest 3-5 treatments in cases of acute pain (pain experienced for less than a month), while more chronic conditions can be managed with acupuncture in around 5-10 weekly treatments.
