Pain is considered chronic when it lasts longer than six months. Chronic pain can restrict your quality of life. It can also lead to more serious health problems and conditions. Chronic pain can make it difficult to keep up at work, manage tasks, and attend gatherings; this can also lead to problems in your relationships.
Chronic pain is linked to conditions that include headaches, migraines, arthritis, nerve pain, back pain, joint pain, and fibromyalgia. The stress affecting your body can produce other physical symptoms, other than the chronic pain you are already experiencing. These symptoms are tense muscles, limited range of motion, lack of energy, and changes in appetite. It can also have emotional effects, such as depression, anger, anxiety, or fear of re-injury. Pain signals can stay active in the nervous system for weeks, with our acupuncture treatments, we relax the nervous system while improving energy and blood flow.
At Acupuncture Wellness Services, we use a combination of modalities and techniques to regulate the flow of energy in the body to achieve outstanding results. The extensive training and experience of our practitioners enables them to successfully blend time-tested and ancient treatment protocols with modern and sophisticated therapies. One of the greatest benefits of our procedure is the ability to detect and correct energetic sensitivities to foods and the environment that might be creating symptoms in your body. Each patient is treated individually, and so the combination of techniques is determined at the time of evaluation. Our treatments integrate well with western medicine, chiropractic, massage therapy, occupational therapy, dental work and nutritional healing.
“For years I went to doctors who were unable to find the cause of my chronic pain, fatigue & rashes….Nicole not only was able to heal me but was able to validate my concerns.”
“I will say that I was skeptical of how acupuncture could cure me from this pain…. I can now say that I no longer suffer from any of that terrible inflammation and pain that caused me to miss numerous days of school and work.”
