Physical pain is a common occurrence for many of us. In the past few years, more and more people are turning to acupuncture in an effort to alleviate their pain. One of the great things about the use of acupuncture for pain management is the almost non-existent side effects versus the adverse effects of over-the-counter and prescription medications.
As a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practitioner I have many tools, besides acupuncture, to treat pain including cupping, moxabustion, guasha and herbal medicine.
Acupuncture is well known for alleviating back pain. But what many people don’t know is that it’s a great therapy for other types of physical discomforts as well. Here’s a short list of pains that I commonly see in clinic that are treatable with acupuncture and other modalities:[checklist icon=”check” iconcolor=”” circle=”yes”]
- back pain
- knee pain
- foot pain
- sore/tight muscles
- menstrual cramps
- TMD (aka TMJ)
As I mentioned in my August newsletter, pain is a sign of blockage in the body. So, if your body is trying to tell you something it’s a good idea to listen sooner than later. If you’ve got pain, know that you don’t have to live with it.
Call or email for a free 10 minute consultation to see if TCM can help alleviate some of your pain. I bet it can!
