"We conclude that acupuncture is effective for the treatment of chronic pain, with treatment effects persisting over time."​

In May 2018, a team of researchers from the Acupuncture Trialists Collaboration published an updated study which concluded acupuncture relieved people’s pain and improved their mobility in comparison to those who underwent sham acupuncture treatments.  The researchers also showed the effects of acupuncture persisted for at least 12 months after the treatments ended. This study adds to the growing body of literature that suggests acupuncture can be a viable treatment for chronic pain. The findings in this study cannot speak to how each patient may have been affected by placebo given that significant changes were not observed  in the group who received sham acupuncture treatments. Additional studies would be needed to conclude any results from the sham acupuncture portion of this study.


Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine work to alleviate back pain in all areas it occurs:


Experience a natural treatment

Traditional Chinese Medicine uses completely natural treatment methods that leverage ancient herbal remedies and your body’s innate healing processes rather than synthetic medications. We help you get back to optimal health without drugs or harmful side effects.


Use your body’s natural healing processes

Acupuncture stimulates the release of endorphins – neurotransmitters responsible for blocking the sensation of pain. The stimulation also releases other chemicals that either change how the body experiences pain or triggers the release of other chemicals that activate the body’s internal regulating system. 


Address the root causes of your pain

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine address the root causes of your pain rather than just masking your symptoms. We develop treatment plans that are unique to each patient because each patient comes in with a unique body, health history and root cause behind their pain. 


Yes, it is very safe. Acupuncturists use individually wrapped, single-use, sterile needles for each treatment.

Acupuncture can cause minor bruising and tenderness around where the needles are inserted. This bruising will go away within a couple of days after your treatment.

This depends on the severity of the pain and how long it has been an issue. Chronic pain tends to take longer to resolve than acute pain. We will help determine the duration of time it will take for you to see significant changes in your health. We can work together to develop a treatment plan that’s manageable for you.
