  1. Shoulder injuries- Bursitis, "frozen shoulder", rotator cuffs, or scapula problems benefit from treatment.

  1. Bursitis/Tendonitis.

  1. Pre and post surgery preparation and recovery- Acupuncture helps prep your body for surgery and helps you recover more quickly. Returning to "normal" faster, it is what we all want to achieve.

So How does it work?

Acupuncture enhances blood circulation, especially in the area that there is pain or discomfort. This desired action can be achieved by regulating the autonomic nervous system (which is responsible for internal organ system functioning, regulation of blood circulation, and production of relaxation effects. When circulation in the tissue improves, muscle relaxation occurs, and immediate pain reduction follows in many cases.

Proper circulation in the tissue is important for not only blood to nourish the tissue but also in enhancing the elimination of muscle fatigue and pain-causing substances (e.g., lactic acid) thus resulting in healthy tissues. Physically and mentally you can feel better.
