The Facts: Acupuncture Relieves Pain 

Acupuncture is well over 3,000-years-old and is healing technique of Chinese Medicine. In 1997, the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) documented and publicized acupuncture’s safety and efficacy for treating a wide range of conditions. Acupuncture is now covered by many insurance policies and is used most broadly to relieve pain.

How does acupuncture work?

Acupuncture is a powerful tool used to relieve muscle spasms and restrictions.

These restrictions may compress nerves and reduce circulation to the effected area, causing pain.  By relieving muscle restrictions, circulation is increased, increasing range of motion and reducing pain.


There are dozens of reasons why your lower back, neck, or shoulder may hurt.  At Messina Acupuncture, we acknowledge that everyone’s body is different.  There are over 7 billion people on this planet, all with their own unique set of variables.   For this reason, an individualized treatment plan is necessary for each patient.
