Pain can be quite debilitating. Regardless whether it is arthritic type pain, migraine/headache or muscle aches and pains can effect your quality of life.
Treatment for pain includes correcting any vitamin and mineral deficiencies as well as acupuncture. According to traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), when your energy flow, or Qi (pronounced “chi”) is out of balance, your body cannot adapt to stress, making you more likely to develop chronic illness and pain. TCM seeks to relieve these imbalances by adjusting the circulation of Qi by inserting and manipulating fine metal needles into acupuncture points.
Myofascial release is another technique of inserting acupuncture needles into tight knotted muscles, especially in the trapezius muscle to relieve the tension in your shoulders from stress or poor posture.
Acupuncture can also be used for facial rejuvenation. Dr. Maria Papasodaro, ND is trained in this therapy which involves non-surgical method of reducing the signs of the aging process. It is a revitalization process designed to help the whole body look and feel younger which can reduce 5-15 years from the face. This treatment is suitable for people with deep wrinkles, fine lines, bags under the eyes, sagging, puffiness, drooping eyelids, double chin, large pores, dry skin and headaches.
