We will share meditations, affirmations and other self-healing practices that will help reduce your stress. Reducing stress is key to recovering from pain and for modeling new neural pathways.

Why Our Unique Pain Treatment Is So Effective
The way the brain functions can really work against chronic pain patients. The brain develops well-worn “pain pathways” that become the status quo. So, while you may think the pain is in your back, research shows that it may actually be your brain that is the culprit. Neuromodulation techniques like acupuncture and mind-body medicine are fantastic at helping the brain develop new neural pathways.

How does acupuncture treat pain?
Acupuncture reduces inflammation, improves blood circulation and relaxes muscles, tendons and soft tissue. It enhances your neuroendocrine axis, and regulates your hormone and endorphin levels. Acupuncture helps your brain create new neural pathways which overcomes the “pain pathways” that become ingrained in chronic pain conditions.
How long does it take to work?
Everybody is different and the length of treatment varies. We’ve seen it take as little as 4 weeks and as long as 12 months.
What about herbal medicine?
We may recommend an herbal formula based on your specific presentation. Herbal medicines have been used for pain issues for thousands of years. They reduce inflammation, improve blood circulation and help restore depleted glands and hormones, all of which can affect your pain condition.
Do you include dietary guidance?
You will receive specific dietary recommendations based on your unique needs.
What are my chances of success?
Your situation is unique and once we meet with you we will be able to give you our best estimate of time and prognosis of outcome
Will your treatment interfere with my medications?
We will not recommend anything that interferes with your medications. Our goal is to work with you and your doctor for the best possible outcome.
