Are you suffering from Chronic Pain? Sciatica, back pain, neck pain, nerve pain and foot pain can be debilitating. We can help.

Most people don’t know what is causing their pain – and there are often multiple reasons for chronic and persistent pain. The nervous system, joint pain, muscle spasms and pain, connective tissue pain and emotional pain all contribute to the pain cycle.

Any or all of these may be involved. Acupuncture allows room for treatment and diagnosis to occur at the same time. This is beneficial as you can get relief instantly, while you feel the change happening in your body as we release tightness and holding with acutherapy – a combination of  advanced massage and acupuncture techniques.

We use massage and thorough palpation to determine the treatment locations. We use Acutherapy – a combination of 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 to bring relief.

Acupuncture excels at diagnosing and treating the following chronic conditions:

  • Headaches
  • Neck pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Chest pain
  • Abdominal pain
  • Back pain
  • Hip pain
  • Knee pain
  • Foot pain
  • Elbow pain
  • Hand pain
  • Face pain
  • Pain in the a**

Inital appointment 2 months post arthroscopic knee surgery. Could not walk down hill without pain. My goal, as a long term runner, was to get back on the road. I am now training for a sprint Triathalon and while still slow, there is no pain and I look forward to continuing to improve. Chad knew just what to do, where to put needles and had lots of helpful advice. Grateful.

Pre and Post Operative Care

Many of the surgeries performed today display the wonders of modern medicine. At the same time there are side effects which can be effectively treated with Chinese Medicine including:

  • Painful scar tissue
  • Muscular imbalances
  • Side effects of drugs
  • Anxiety
  • Depression

Having a hands-on practitioner guiding you through the process before and after surgery will help care for the soft-tissue, calm emotions, relieve muscle pain, and help you recover much faster.

I went to see Chad for a bad ankle sprain but ended up getting more than just recovery from that injury. Not only do I... know that together Chad and I can resolve any potential residual weakness or susceptibility, I am also reminded how much my body craves healing other areas of tension and release. Chad has a very calm presence, focuses deeply on the areas of injury or concern and is comforting in sharing what he is doing and why. I felt confident in his work and supported in competent hands. I know if I ever want to feel better in my body, ease in my spirit and generally relaxed and refreshed, I can just go see more

Chad was very down to Earth and treated my shoulder very directly. I was immediately out of long term pain and have... range of motion that I have not had for a long time in my shoulder. He also treated other muscles in my body that allow me to move with greater ease. I would definitely recommend him!read more

Finding Chad and Nicolle Johnson was perhaps my luckiest day this year. I had hurt my back badly at the very same time... I began suffering with Plantar Fasciitis. Then my allergies kicked in as well as assorted aches and pains. I searched for an acupuncturist on line; intuitively my search led me to a kind and caring conversation with Nicolle who correctly convinced me that Chad was the one I needed to meet. I’ve been seeing Chad for over two months in his peaceful, Zen-like office. With natural kindness and patience, Chad listens intently until his extraordinary ‘chad radar’ turns on. Then, miraculously, he begins to connect pain with source, pain with source. How he does this is not only fascinating, it feels magical. He finds pain that I didn’t know existed and, most often, appears to be at the root of my physical issues. I happily offer my highest recommendation and know that if you come to Chad for healing, you are going to feel better and more

Chad is a valuable partner in any healing effort; his broad knowledge of Japanese acupuncture training, massage and... spirit are integrated into a powerful and skillful healing practice. He is sensitive, intuitive and responsive. I say 2017 was a year in which I healed. Chad was the primary practitioner in my healing, and I am forever more

I have suffered with nerve pain since 2006 and tried many acupuncturists and physical therapists over the years. After... my first visit with Chad I noticed some immediate results. After 3 visits most of my pain is gone! Chad has great skills and I am singing his praises all over town. He is a wonderful healer and I feel blessed to have found more

Recently I suffered from near- constant severe headaches for four months straight. I saw six doctors, including a... neurologist, had multiple tests and scans, and was prescribed a plethora of prescription meds. Nothing seemed to help. The headaches were incapacitating and taking a toll on my mental and emotional health. Thankfully I made an appointment with Chad and after my first visit, my worst type of headache completely went away. After two more visits, my lesser (remaining) headaches had completely stopped as well. Chad has really helped restore my quality of life and I would highly recommend him for anyone suffering with chronic more
