Acupuncture Excels In Treating Pain & Stress

This page is dedicated to the two most popular conditions that acupuncture treats extremely well.  Please note that we have a separate page with a somewhat comprehensive List of Conditions Acupuncture Treats and will soon be starting a blog focused on conditions treated with acupuncture and herbal medicine.

Pain

Most folks are familiar with acupuncture's effectiveness in the treatment of Pain and it's by far the #1 condition acupuncturists treat including Arthritic Pain (Osteo & Rheumatoid), Headache Pain, Inflammatory Pain, Joint & Muscle Pain, Sciatic Pain, Labor Pain, Menstrual & PMS Pain, Post-operative Pain and many other forms of pain.  It may be worth noting that clinical studies have shown that acupuncture’s effectiveness in the treatment of chronic pain is comparable with that of MORPHINEWithout the yucky side effects!

Acupuncture can be regarded as the method of choice for treating many chronically painful conditions

And when it comes to cancer pain, an analysis of studies comparing acupuncture with some heavy duty painkillers such as codeine & demerol concluded the following:

For cancer pain, acupuncture provided an immediate analgesic effect similar to that of codeine and pethidine [Demerol], with a marked effect after use for two months.

Considering the recurring headlines surrounding opioid addiction and the over-prescribing of opioids in the news, acupuncture is an incredibly effective and inherently safer alternative for many of our neighbors.

And recently (February 2017), The American College Of Physicians released revised guidelines for treating back pain where they recommended, you guessed it, getting acupuncture before drugs or surgery.

Despite how incredibly awesome acupuncture is in the treatment of pain, here's the scoop that some acupuncturists won't share with you right away:  Treating pain with acupuncture, especially when treating chronic pain, will require multiple treatments*, and acupuncture is more effective if the treatments are spaced closely together to start.  Yes, we can sometimes make you feel brand new, or make you feel 10 years younger, after one treatment, but it may not last very long since longer term relief often requires more than a single treatment or treatments spaced a week apart.  It's similar to how taking only one single isolated pill prescribed by your doctor won't usually last very long or do very much. 

So when you consider that most acupuncturists charge $60 - $120+ per treatment, most people we know can't afford multiple treatments at that rate & thus don't have access to the incredible pain-mitigating benefits of acupuncture.  This is why we're providing affordable acupuncture & herbal medicine - so you can better afford to get better and stay better! 

Why overpay for acupuncture if you don't have to?  Especially if you can get 4 or more treatments at our clinic for the price of one treatment elsewhere!

Stress

Stress may not seem like a big deal on the surface, but considering 75 to 90% of all doctor visits are related to stress and that chronic stress suppresses the body’s immune system, ultimately manifesting as illness, odds are very good that acupuncture can help you and most people you know.   For more info, check out our video entitled Stress & Acupuncture (below).

And if you subscribe to the importance of prevention then you can probably see how acupuncture could go a long ways toward improving your health - solely due to its ability to reduce stress & the correlation between stress and disease!

Money & Stress:  There's no doubt that finances are a major contributor to stress in our society and that both the rising costs and uncertainty of healthcare are huge huge huge contributors to our stress levels! 

So why overpay for acupuncture if you don't have to?  Especially if you can get 4+ treatments at our clinic for the price of one treatment elsewhere!
