Conditions That Respond to Acupuncture From Your Glendale Acupuncturist

If you suffer from chronic back pain, shoulder pain, sciatica, joint pain, or arthritis, we can relieve your pain using acupuncture.

For centuries, acupuncture has used Chinese natural medicine principles to alleviate inflammation and pain by circulating qi, or the body’s vital energy.

In a healthy body, qi circulates freely through all of your limbs following pathways or meridians. When these pathways become blocked, qi can no longer move freely. As a result, qi can remain stuck and the body can fall out of balance. Real health problems can develop if this qi blockage is not treated.

Bodies develop qi blockages from mental and emotional trauma, sports injuries, diet, stress, and other factors.

How Acupuncture Helps Treat Joint Pain, Back Pain, Sciatica, Shoulder Pain, Sports Injuries & More

Our acupuncturist takes an intake exam for all new patients, which includes a tongue examination and pulse check. We also take a health history and ask about your sleep, diet, exercise, bowel movements, energy, and more.

Based on our examination and observation of your symptoms, we come up with a treatment plan to remove qi blockages and harmonize your body’s energy using acupuncture needling. To supplement your treatment and prolong pain relief in between visits, we may recommend Chinese herbs.

Over a series of visits, your energy levels will balance, symptoms will diminish, and pain and inflammation will decrease. Once you feel better, occasional visits can keep your qi balanced.
