neck musclesNeck and Shoulder Pain

Muscles and joints of the neck and shoulder take a beating in the modern world from computer overuse, smartphones, poor posture, stress, and injuries. The good news is that acupuncture can help treat neck and shoulder pain. [1,2]

Acupuncture helps to deeply relax the muscles in the neck and shoulders, reduce inflammation, and balance the nervous system which will help to reduce pain and stimulate healing.[3,4] This leads to long term relief even after the treatment course has finished.[5]

My approach centers on personalized treatments for each person.  We will target the pain and stiffness by addressing imbalances within the muscles, connective tissues, and acupuncture channels of the neck and shoulders.  The neck and shoulders are thoroughly integrated- neck pain often comes from trigger points on your shoulders-this is why we treat them together.
