Acupuncture: Natural Pain Relief

Acupuncture is more than a medical procedure. It is a means to an amazing healing experience. All of our acupuncturists listen to their patients with compassion, perform a thorough intake, customize a unique treatment plan, and describe every detail of the healing session.

Acupuncture is a safe and highly effective treatment option for many different kinds of pain including:
arthritis, fibromyalgia, Bell’s Palsey, migraine headaches, joints, knee, sciatica, lumbago, carpal tunnel, tendonitis, and so much more.  It is an all natural healing therapy that is backed by scientific research and integrated into todays healthcare systems. Acupuncture is a covered benefit in many health insurance and Covered California plans, the California Workers Compensation system, and personal injury/auto accident cases.

Therapeutic Modalities: Used to treat pain, injuries, and inflammation

At Natural Wonders Healthcare, your acupuncturist/herbalist will use one or a combination of various healing techniques including acupuncture, electro-acupuncture, micro-current therapy (acupuncture without needles), acupressure, far infrared heat, magnetic ear seeds, and premium herbal paste/salve to produce the best results for your healing experience. Your acupuncturist will also make diet, lifestyle, and nutritional supplement recommendations for continued healing far beyond your treatment experience.

Therapeutic Modalities: Used to treat pain, injuries, and inflammation

Acupuncture, electro-acupuncture, and/or micro-current are used to facilitate tissue healing, obtain myofascial release, and control pain.

Therapeutic stretching and strengthening exercises restore functional biomechanics, obtain myofascial release, and relax tense muscles and trigger points.

Far Infrared Heat:
Far Infrared heat is used to open up capillaries to promote local circulation, relax tight muscles, and to help facilitate pain relief.

Nutritional support:
We use pharmaceutical grade nutritional supplements called nutraceuticals so our patients can get optimal results. Herbal support from within the body often helps treatments performed on the body obtain better results particularly when inflammation is chronic and lodged deep within the body or when other health conditions contribute to slow recovery.

To reduce pain and tension, obtain myofascial release, and ameliorate inflammation.

Herbal Salve:
Thick, rich, Chinese herbal salve/poultice, which looks like black peanut butter, containing over 15 herbs is applied topically at inflammation site then bandaged to help reduce local pain and inflammation.

Gua Sha (Referred to as Rolfing or Coining in the West):
Soft tissue manipulation technique to obtain myofascial release, break up scar tissue, and alleviate tense muscles.
