Acupuncture for Pain Relief

Acupuncture works by interrupting the pain signaling process in your brain while stimulating your body’s own natural, internal painkillers. Acupuncture and herbs relax muscles, restore function, and can completely alleviate your pain.

We are trained in trigger point release needling, motor point acupuncture, dry needling, electroacupuncture, cupping and instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization.
