Unlocking Pain Relief with Acupuncture: Your Gateway to Comprehensive Treatment

Pain management is one of the most popular reasons people initially come in to see us at the clinic. It’s often the gateway into learning about how acupuncture can treat a wider variety of conditions. That said, acupuncture is extremely effective at minimizing both acute and chronic pain. When considering pain, we’re talking about a wide variety of ailments including musculoskeletal concerns, headaches, gastrointestinal pain, and painful periods.

From a TCM perspective, pain is understood as a blockage of the normal smooth flow of Qi throughout the body. When in harmony, Qi moves freely throughout the channel system. When stress is placed on the body through, for example, a fall or bad posture, Qi gets blocked along the impacted channel and pain ensues. A helpful metaphor is imagining a large highway with cars moving easily along the road. If a traffic jam or an accident occurs, there will be a backup that can extend far beyond where the initial jam or accident occured. This is where acupuncture comes in. Through the insertion of a needle along the course of the “highway” of pain, or in a corresponding channel, the “jammed up” Qi is given space to move freely again. Acupuncture has also been shown to facilitate the release of endorphins, which are hormones that help to minimize the experience of pain.

Some other ways we treat pain at the clinic are with Chinese herbal medicine, moxa packs, and PIT (point injection therapy). Chinese herbal medicine can help to move Qi and Blood stasis that leads to pain, as well as strengthen underlying systems that support the body to better cope with discomfort. Moxa packs contain the herb mugwort and are an incredibly effective way to topically deal with musculoskeletal pain. Point injection therapy involves the insertion of substances into areas of pain to minimize inflammation and encourage tissue healing.

As always, your treatment will be unique to you. Our licensed acupuncturists will tailor your treatment to address the root cause as well as the symptoms of your pain.
