Why Acupuncture?

Why should you choose acupuncture or Chinese medicine to help with your health issue?  It's a good question and one that many in the US encounter when considering their healthcare options.

Here are just a few reasons why acupuncture might be a good choice for you:

  • You are in pain, either acute (less than 3 months) or chronic (3 months or longer).

  • You've experienced a loss in range of motion around one or more joints, either with or without pain.

  • You're trying to avoid surgery.

  • You've had surgery to correct an issue and the procedure either didn't provide the expected pain relief or you're now dealing with new pain/range of motion loss post surgery.

  • You've tried injections for pain relief and they either didn't work or didn't last very long.

  • You're experiencing depression, anxiety or PTSD with or without physical pain.

  • You have chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, neuralgia, complex regional pain syndrome or any other chronic condition that is represented by a collection of seemingly unrelated symptoms.

  • You've been to several doctors or specialists and can't get a concrete/consistent diagnosis.

  • You're in a very stressful situation or have a high degree of stress in your life.

  • You're on chemotherapy and looking for something to help you with the pain, fatigue, nausea or loss of appetite.

  • You're experiencing spasm or tremor (including restless legs at night).

  • You've recently experienced a stroke and are trying to recover motor control.

  • You're taking or have switched pharmaceuticals and are experiencing side-effects (pain, swelling, burning mouth/tongue, etc.).
