Does Acupuncture provide real pain relief?
Traditional Chinese Medicine, which includes acupuncture, has been successfully treating pain conditions for thousands of years.
“If there is free flow of qi, there is no pain.”
Whether or not the relief and pain management provided by acupuncture is “real” has been a hot topic debated by the western medical community. However, large numbers of patients were reporting positive results and experiencing less pain. So much so that it is recognized as an effective treatment by the military and one of the limited number of alternative treatments covered by many health insurance plans. You can read more about the 14 million Americans that have tried acupuncture and a quote from the director of integrative pain management at Mt. Sinai Hospital here.
If you seek acupuncture for pain in Brooklyn, patients of Garden Acupuncture consistently report a reduction in, or resolution of pain. But you don’t have to take our word for it. We’re excited that Traditional Chinese Medicine and the use of acupuncture are starting to be diligently studied providing proof in the effectiveness for pain and even reported on traditional medical sources such as the Harvard Health Publications of Harvard Medical School.
What We Do Is So Much More Than Acupuncture.
At Garden Acupuncture we practice Whole System Traditional Chinese Medicine. This means we utilize all aspects of this medicine in the entirety that it is meant to be practiced. Acupuncture along with nutrition and chinese herbology are components of this complete system along with additional adjunct therapies. It is this complete system that has provided the benefits that have been reported and documented over thousands of years and it is this complete system that we hope future studies will be based upon when seeking further proof of effectiveness in the western paradigm. In order to receive the full benefit of this very powerful, time tested healing option, we believe that offering only acupuncture or partial acupuncture, such as in a community setting, would be providing a disservice. While acupuncture alone or abbreviated use of acupuncture may indeed provide some level of benefit, and we are thrilled that it is available and utilized demonstrating an openness to this modality, we truly believe in and have seen the greater effectiveness of employing the comprehensive and individualized approach of Whole System TCM.
If you are looking to receive acupuncture for pain in Brooklyn, along with complete acupuncture treatments offered in private, tranquil rooms, we also use food and herbs as medicine that have proven to be effective in reducing pain. Once your patterns have been identified, we will make the proper dietary and lifestyle recommendations as well as prescribe herbal formulas if needed.
"I first started going to Garden Acupuncture about 7 months ago for what I thought was a foot problem. Alex & Lisa promptly and accurately diagnosed that it was really a back problem and started "attacking" it immediately with acupuncture, herbs and cupping. They also referred me to an amazing spine specialist to get a more accurate diagnosis with an MRI because of their belief that some problems can benefit from the mix of both acupuncture and Western medicine. Turns out that I have 2 herniated discs as Alex thought in our first meeting. Alex & Lisa have worked with my spine doctor to get a better understanding of my issues so they could treat me better. Needless to say, I feel a lot better now. Both emotionally and physically - they've been a fantastic support network for my chronic pain. They're knowledgeable and explain anatomy and the reasoning behind what they're doing very clearly. And they're just awesome people to be around, very helpful when suffering from chronic pain!" - Martha
"I have been using acupuncture to treat a wide variety of my aches and pains, but recently after moving home to Brooklyn, NY I was stuck having to find a new acupuncturist. After looking on several sites I thought I would try Garden Acupuncture and I could not be happier! I started to see them after my German Shepard pulled on his leash and I slipped and fell on my right knee. Both Lisa and Alex have offered an extreme amount of information, support, and guidance and after 4 treatments I was able to comfortably navigate by beloved Brooklyn without any more pain. I would definitely recommend Garden Acupuncture to anyone needing pain relief." -Ida
