Our unique blend of natural therapies works for all types of

pain and arthritis, including:

  1. Acupuncture increases blood flow:

    All of the things that your body needs to heal (oxygen, natural pain killers, anti-inflammatories, hormones) are contained within your blood. If the flow of blood is impeded your body may not be able to fully access the areas where they are needed. In Chinese medicine, we consider lack of circulation to be one of the main causes of disease due to it’s major impact on the body’s ability to communicate. Acupuncture has been shown in research to increase blood flow and the dilation of capillaries, blood vessels and arteries throughout your body.

  2. Acupuncture stimulates your body’s built in healing mechanisms: 

    When an acupuncture needle is inserted into a painful or tight area of your body, we are essentially re-injuring the tissue. The healing mechanisms of your body are called in to heal the new injury and during the process clean up some of the old injury as well.

  3.  Acupuncture reduces both the intensity and perception of your pain:

    Acupuncture impacts your brain in a way that results in a reduction of your perception of pain. In fact, a recent study using functional MRI imaging showed that acupuncture had a dampening effect on not only your perception of pain but your expectation of it as well.

  4.  Acupuncture relaxes shortened muscles:

    The stimulation from the needle causes muscles to relax and lengthen thereby taking pressure off of your joints and relaxing muscle spasms.

  5.  Acupuncture releases natural painkillers:

    Research has shown that the release of substances such as endorphins, norepinephrine and enkephalin is stimulated through acupuncture treatment. Some of these biochemicals are 10 – 200 times as powerful as morphine.

How does acupuncture help with pain?

The mechanisms by which acupuncture helps with pain are many. In short, acupuncture helps to increase blood flow to the affected tissues, reduce inflammation, relax tight muscles and promote the release of natural painkillers.

Acupuncture treatment stimulates your body’s ability to heal itself!

Does acupuncture hurt?

Most people are surprised and relieved to learn that acupuncture needles are extremely thin and completely unlike the hypodermic needles that they have experienced at their doctor’s office. Acupuncturists can attain a high level of skill in gently placing these tiny needles and often the insertion is barely perceptible. Once the needle is inserted there may be a mild sensation of heaviness, achiness or tingling in the area of insertion. This is normal and therapeutically beneficial.

Will I have to keep coming forever?

The majority of our patients do not need long term maintenance. Once your pain has resolved and we ensure that your results are stable we release you from care. Many patients choose to come in for regular visits even after their main complaint has resolved because they notice that they feel and function better when they receive regular acupuncture treatments.

 At Balance Acupuncture and Natural Medicine our goal is to get you feeling better fast. We want you to be so happy with our care you will tell all of your friends and family about us.

How long does it take to see results?

Acupuncture is a therapy and generally requires several visits to obtain stable, long lasting relief from pain. That being said, many patients begin to feel significant improvement in their symptoms within the first 2-3 treatments.
