Pain is a part of life, it affects all of us to some extent. Most people are able to function
normally with only an occasional ache or pain as they go about their busy life. Unfortunately a
significant number of people must deal with chronic pain which impacts their quality of life in
The sources of chronic pain are numerous and can be neurological, orthopedic, dental or
gynecological in origin. Accidents, work related injuries, sports activities and the natural aging
process can all produce chronic pain. Studies have shown that 70% of us experience some
degree of lower back pain.
Our approach to pain management seeks to relieve the pain, improve function and mobility
and remove the cause of the pain. Generally, we use acupuncture, high frequency
therapeutic instruments and Tui Na (Chinese massage) to stimulate the central nervous
system to release the natural pain killer substances and hormones in the body such as
endorphins, adrenaline and hydro-cortisone ect. This in turn relieves muscle spasm and
reduces the inflammatory reaction.
Acupuncture is an ancient time tested Chinese treatment approach. It is a natural procedure
that stimulates the blood flow to help strengthen the affected area of the body. Acupuncture
may also activate the hypothalamus and pituitary gland resulting in a spectrum of systemic
effects. The biochemical changes may stimulate the body's natural healing abilities and
promote physical and emotional well being. Chinese herbs in conjunction with acupuncture
can successfully relieve pain and avoid the side effects and possible addiction to long term
usage of prescription pain medications.
We have successfully helped thousands of patients with chronic pain complaints. If you have
ongoing migraine or tension headache, neck or back pain, muscle or joint pain, TMJ or dental
pain, please give us an opportunity to help you. Our approach and treatment has also been
proven to be effective in treating menstrual cramping and spasm as well as fertility related
