Neck pain is extremely common and treatable.
Neck pain can create painful headaches, muscle spasms, shoulder pain, achiness or almost an electric shock feeling from the neck down the arm.
It is important to treat neck pain to decrease the inflammation, alleviate headaches, correct posture, and decrease pain to help individuals return to physical activities.
Neck pain can last from days to years, depending on the severity and the cause. Common causes include osteoarthritis, spinal stenosis, herniated discs, pinched nerves, mental and physical stress and strain, poor posture, tumors, scoliosis, improper sleeping, or repetitive motions. Neck pain can affect all aspects of a person’s life and lead to other health conditions.
Poor posture, whether leaning over a computer or hunching over a workbench, strains neck muscles. Common symptoms of neck pain are sharp pains, stiff neck, general soreness, radicular pain, cervical radiculopathy, trouble with gripping or lifting objects, headaches, and the inability to perform overhead activities. With our acupuncture treatments, we relax the nervous system, nourish hormones, balance emotions, along with 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.
“...My hands used to fall asleep when I would sleep because of my neck pain - I have had that for 10 years. I NO LONGER HAVE THIS ISSUE! I can turn my head to the left again. I can bend and touch my toes again…”

“The most incredible thing for me though was I came in with “to the point of tears” pain and felt relief the next day… The most important thing however are the results. I haven’t had pain in my cervical spine. For this reason, for the last 3 months, I have been traveling from Astoria, Queens to Smithtown, Long Island to see Nicole. For the results. I highly recommend her”
