How Acupuncture Treatments Relieve or Eliminate Chronic Pain
“Approximately one month ago, I awoke with a severe acute pain on my right side behind my hip. Previously, I had injured that spot in a Pilates class during one of my stretches. It ached a bit but nothing like that morning!
My sister had an acupuncture session with Rob the previous week and when she heard of my plight, she suggested I call him. I had never been to an acupuncturist before so I was a little apprehensive.
To my surprise, Rob’s professionalism, empathy and skill relieved my pain after one visit. The acupuncture procedure was virtually painless and he explained every step to me throughout the process.
He is still following up with me to see how I am feeling. I definitely recommend Rob to anyone seeking acupuncture and Chinese medicine services.”

Acupuncture for Low Back Pain
Lower back pain is one of the most common pain related complaints these days, and one of the most frequently treated by acupuncturists. Back pain can be attributed to a variety of different issues, and a pain relief acupuncturist may employ a number of different techniques to address the pain, including the needling of various acupuncture points around the body. It is believed that stimulation of these areas can help promote the release of "feel good" chemicals in the brain, muscles, and spinal cord and help ease pain and promote healing.
Acupuncture for Arthritis Pain
Arthritis pain can be debilitating and downright crippling to some individuals, which can make it hard to participate in day to day activities. Acupuncture benefits the joints, relieves pain and inflammation, helps strengthen the body, and has been proven to relieve the symptoms of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and fibromyalgia.
Through the careful placement of needles into specific points around the body, acupuncture can help to relax tight, spasming muscles and bring them back to their pain-free, natural state. Acupuncture can also help alleviate the other symptoms associated with arthritis, including insomnia, headaches, stiff neck, fatigue and irritability.
Acupuncture for Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, ADHD
Depression, anxiety, insomnia, exhaustion, and feelings of being overwhelmed are all signs of an energy imbalance that needs to be addressed. Acupuncture can help rectify energetic imbalances and ease pain, built-up emotions, stress, frustration agitation, and anger. Patients undergoing regular acupuncture treatments for depression, anxiety, PTSD, or ADD tend to feel more uplifted, calm, focused, and overall experience a greater sense of well-being.
Acupuncture for Morning Sickness
Morning sickness can be a big issue for pregnant women and can last for hours on end and occur at any time of the day. Acupuncture is a safe and natural way to address morning sickness. An acupuncturist will insert needles into specific points around the body to help lessen the severity of nausea and vomiting due to early pregnancy. Acupuncture can also help to decrease the frequency at which morning sickness occurs. Oftentimes, relief can be attained within minutes of the treatment and results can be long-lasting.
Acupuncture for Neck Pain
Activities such as staring down at your mobile device or computer screen for long periods, sleeping the wrong way, or poor posture can wreak havoc on the neck and shoulders. Acupuncture is commonly used to treat neck pain, or cervicalgia, and the results can be amazing and long-lasting. Many patients find that acupuncture treatments greatly reduce, and oftentimes completely resolves the neck pain with which they have been suffering.
Acupuncture for Sciatica
The sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in the body. The condition referred to as sciatica is experienced whenever something impinges upon this nerve causing mild to severe pain, discomfort, or a pins-and-needles type of sensation that can radiate from the area of the lower back, down the side or back of the leg, and in some cases, all the way down to the toes. Acupuncture alone, or used in conjunction with other modalities, can help to greatly reduce the pain and discomfort caused by sciatica, and in many cases, resolve the problem completely.
Acupuncture for Migraines and Headaches
Migraines and headaches range in severity and moderation, and in extreme cases, can even cause nausea, vomiting and sensitivity to light. There are three common types of headaches:
- Tension headaches: The most common type of headache is the tension headache, which can range from a slight sensation of pressure to mild or moderate levels of pain.
- Migraines: These are severe to moderate throbbing or pulsating head pains that often occur on one side of the head.
- Chronic headaches: Chronic headaches are migraines or tension headaches that happen every day or just about every day.
A pain relief acupuncturist can help with each of these types of headaches, be they acute or chronic conditions. Patients suffering with mild or even severe or migraine headache conditions often claim that acupuncture is the only healing modality that provides them with any kind of complete or long-lasting relief from what can be quite debilitating episodes of pain and discomfort.
