Acupuncture is an amazing pain management and healing tool. Many of my clients can improve or resolve ongoing shoulder pain, knee pain, low back pain or hip pain. Acupuncture works as a series of treatments spaced closely together in the beginning and then are lengthened out between appointments as pain relief occurs.
A person with a bulging disc who begins treatment at a 6 or 7 out of 10 on the pain scale, will typically have results that get them to a 3/10 after a series of treatments. Results will depend on how often the patient comes and how demanding their job and life are physically. Some people get to a 3/10 fairly quickly, say after 10 visits. Others have demanding jobs and are not able to come in as frequently and may take more visits to achieve results.
AND THE GREAT NEWS is that combining herbs and nutrition and diet and lifestyle advice with acupuncture can help to improve the bodies ability to HEAL. So pain management is not the same as continuing to promote the bodies ability to HEAL the area. Sometimes it is possible to reverse the problem in some people. In other patients, they need to be aware that even with decreased pain, the body has a weak spot that they need to be mindful of as they go about their day.
I offer free consultations and love to treat pain. I get great results in all types of pain and enjoy working with veterans through triwest and supporting people to lower and decrease pain medication in favor of alternative solutions. You can refer a veteran to me or anybody who has issues with pain management.
How does Acupuncture create pain relief?
- Acupuncture increases blood flow and decreases inflammation.
- Acupuncture increases the production of endorphins, which are natural pain relievers.
- Acupuncture increases blood flow to the area helping the body to heal.
- Acupuncture decreases inflammation and swelling so that the nerve function improves.
What My Clients Are Saying
“Two years. That’s how long Western medicine tried to help me with a condition in my lungs and absolutely nothing was working. I got a simple cold that I thought would be gone in a couple of weeks. But somehow that illness got lodged into my lungs and and would not go away. I had had an X-ray, an MRI, and even a broncoscopy. My doctor, plus lung specialists could not figure this out. All they could tell me was that my lungs were irritated and full of mucus. They put me on inhaled steroids, inhaled asthma meds plus 2 sets of other prescriptions. Absolutely nothing helped. I had an uncontrollable cough and I felt I was never getting enough air. Then my cousin suggested Good Needles and Tina. I went to see her and within one month the mucus was gone. My cough was gone. I could breathe again and take in a lung full of air. I can’t begin to tell you how grateful I am To this wonderful angel of mercy. She quite literally changed my life and got me healthy again. I am so incredibly grateful to her. THANK YOU TINA!!!”
