You may have given up on your pain, but I haven't.

“The people I see for pain relief are the hardest cases. They have tried everything else first… pain medication isn't managing their symptoms and in some cases they have been told their only option is surgery. Some have even had surgery and it hasn't resolved the pain. Many feel at war with their own bodies, which is a terrible way to spend every day.

The key is this. Pain is a complex phenomenon that involves more than just our physical body . Our bodies are wonderful and wise, but sometimes - like helping a good friend out of a difficult place - we must help our body to release pain patterns that it has held for a long time. In order to do this we must pay attention to not only the body but the mind, the heart and the spirit."

-Dr. Adria Amenti, DAOM, L.Ac.

Having evolved over thousands of years, acupuncture is one of the oldest continually practiced medical modalities in the world. A treatment involves the insertion and manipulation of flexible, hair-thin needles at specific points along the body's meridian pathways, which are channels through which the body’s energy is thought to flow. Acupuncture is a safe, effective, chemical-free way to promote the body's remarkable self-healing abilities. It is used to prevent and address disease, relieve pain, balance mood, enhance athletic performance, assist fertility, and improve overall wellness.
