Chinese Acupuncture for Pain Relief and Healing
Unfortunately, most people don’t know exactly what’s causing their pain. There are often a wide range of reasons for chronic pain, nervous system pain, joint pain, muscle pain, connective tissue pain, and even emotional pain.
Acupuncture allows room for treatment and diagnosis to occur at the same time. This is beneficial because you will feel the immediate release of tension and strain in the particular parts of the body that are afflicted. This is the beauty of acutherapy, Asheville acupuncture at its best with a unique combination of advanced massage and acupuncture techniques, nutritional counseling and Taoist stone medicine.
Our Difference: Advanced Acutherapy
What is Acutherapy?
Acutherapy is a combination of advanced message practices and acupuncture techniques. More specifically, to bring our clients the most relief, we use orthopedic assessment, massage, trigger point therapy (also referred to as dry needling), gentle Japanese style acupuncture (KM), traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), and other acupuncture and massage techniques. We also apply a mix of massage and thorough palpitation to determine the locations that need treatment.
Acupuncture Treatment for Pre / Post Operative Care
Although many of the surgeries performed today provide the benefit of the advances in modern medicine, there are often a number of negative side effects. These side effects can be effectively treated with Chinese Medicine including:
- Painful scar tissue
- Muscular imbalances
- Side effects of drugs
Having a hands-on practitioner guiding you through the process of surgery, before and after, with ongoing acupuncture treatment will help calm your emotions, promote natural pain relief, relieve muscle pain, and help you recover much faster.

With Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture (also referred to as Cosmetic Acupuncture) we have a unique opportunity to stimulate the production of collagen, erase fine lines, improve texture, decrease pore size, and treat scar tissue. This is a non-surgical technique with the added benefit of balancing the whole body and it’s systems. The Chinese have effectively used these treatments since the Sung Dynasty (960-1279AD) and they are very relaxing. Cosmetic acupuncture was performed on the Empress, Emperor and their courtesans. This is a course of twelve treatments, leaving patients with tighter, plumper skin –looking and feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
No Options LeftWhen you feel that you have no options left, Chinese Medicine can offer you a different perspective on your health. Often times, this difference equates to a better quality of life for you.
The Whole SystemYou don’t have to live in pain. We don’t just look at one sick body part. We look at the health of the whole system. The integration of the whole system makes up you! Therefore, we’ve found that it’s best to examine your entire system, as a whole.
Confusing DiagnosesFor confusing diagnoses, we examine the organs, the neck, and the back, looking for imbalances or tight tender points. Once found, we relieve the points of imbalance and tenderness.
More MobileThe body immediately functions better once these tender points subside, and once the body functions better, the spirit functions better. Once the spirit functions better, the mind functions better. Once relief has been found, patients generally become more mobile.
You don’t have to live with pain.
