Did you know Acupuncture is one of the oldest, most commonly used medical procedures in the world? Historical text show acupuncture to be in existence for more than 3,000 years. Today, extensive practice and research has proven that acupuncture is effective in helping alleviate and even eliminating a wide variety of pain conditions and ailments affecting the body. Many patients and doctors consider acupuncture a mainstream integrative treatment, and that pain can be effectively treated with acupuncture instead of addictive prescription drugs.


A 2012 analysis published by the American Medical Association (AMA) evaluated acupuncture for treatment of chronic pain involving nearly 18,000 patients suffering from back and neck pain, osteoarthritis and chronic headaches. The conclusion was “Acupuncture is effective for the treatment of chronic pain and is therefore a reasonable referral option.”


Harvard University and Massachusetts General Hospital researchers published a study in September 2015 stating that repeated acupuncture treatment might reduce or eliminate the need for opioids by restoring the balance in key brain regions, altering pain-related attention and memory.


Stop living in pain and start living your best life.
