Pain is an uncomfortable feeling and/or an unpleasant sensation in the body. The presence of pain often is an indication that something is wrong. Pain can appear suddenly or can come about slowly. Each individual is the best judge of his or her own pain. Feelings of pain can range from mild and occasional to severe and constant. Pain can be classified as acute pain or chronic pain.
According to CDC, one in four of American adults have suffered a day long bout of pain in the past month, and one in ten say the pain lasted a year or more. At QARE Wellness Acupuncture, we are committed to use the time tested holistic healing of Traditional Chinese Medicine to help you manage your pain.
National Institute of Health (NIH) and the World Health Organization (WHO) documented that acupuncture is an effective in the treatment for the relief of pain. Common pain conditions treated include:
Acupuncture is an energetic form of healing, which makes it hard for some people to accept. However, every cell in our body makes energy, and we know that energy is a power even at the molecular level. The theory behind acupuncture is that this energy moves in pathways in the body. Pain, illness, or uncomfortable symptoms arise when this energy is either blocked or depleted.
The energy moving throughout your body pools or rises to the surface at various points, called acu-points. We can access this energy by inserting needles into various acu-points to either unblock or help build up depleted energy. It’s important to be clear that our acupuncturist isn’t using needles like "medicine". Rather, by inserting needles into appropriate points, we are stimulating your body to heal itself.
