Acupuncture will help ease the pain of most cases whether you are experiencing an acute or chronic injury or illness.
How Can Acupuncture Help with Pain?
An estimated 76.5 million Americans experience chronic pain, one-third of which describe their pain as “disabling”. Many people rely on toxic chemicals to manage and control their pain levels. With acupuncture on your side, you don’t have to. In fact, one of the most common reasons people seek acupuncture is for pain management. At Wellnest Acupuncture + Holistic Medicine, we use different acupuncture and cupping techniques including dry needling, trigger point therapy, fire cupping, motor point therapy, and electrical stimulation (e-stim) for the treatment of acute and chronic pain.
We have proven successful at treating all of the following types of injuries and pain, including:
- Arthritis & Joint Pain

Acupuncture can help reduce recovery time post-surgery and may even help individuals avoid invasive surgical procedures altogether. Regular treatments can also lower the need for pain medication, which can lead to addiction and unwanted side effects.
You may ask, how does acupuncture work to relieve pain?
Acupuncture is successful at treating pain because it increases the secretion of endorphins in the body. Endorphins are the body’s natural painkiller and are 1,000 times more potent than some of the strongest pain medications. This is why acupuncture is a safer alternative to prescription medication. To learn more about how acupuncture helps with pain read my blog, “Acupuncture for the Treatment of Back Pain.”
Acupuncture also has an effect on the circulatory system by influencing vasodilators like histamine in the body. This shows how acupuncture treatments can resolve edema, neuropathy, and injuries. Acupuncture also generates competing stimuli and effectively interrupts the neurotransmission of the pain signals from reaching the brain. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine provide a safe, holistic approach to pain relief.
“I really can’t believe I’m writing this. I’m a hairdresser and due to the grind of the profession have suffered through carpal tunnel for the past two years. Garryn not only reduced my pain, but ultimately saved my career. Thank you! I mean, acupuncture even helped with my anxiety. Talk about a two for one!“
