Are you suffering from migraines, sciatica, back pain or other chronic pain?

Most people don’t know what is causing their pain – and there are often multiple reasons for chronic and persistent pain. There is nervous system pain, joint pain, muscle pain, connective tissue pain and emotional pain.

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**

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 calm your emotions, relieve muscle pain, and help you recover much faster.

Sports Injuries

Nagging injuries affect your performance. Icing these injuries often makes them worse.

Acutherapy uses a rich combination of Chinese medicine, advanced acupuncture and massage techniques, herbs, linaments, and plasters to expedite recovery.

We work with professional athletes and weekend warriors; runners, golfers, cyclists, tennis players, climbers, etc.  to eliminate pain and increase performance. Don’t let your sports injuries hold you back. Integrated massage, acupuncture, and herbal medicine will bring you natural and lasting relief from your sports injuries. We treat physical ailments ranging from the acute stage to the chronic stage– and help get you back to your peak performance.

The best advice is: “Don’t delay your treatment.” The sooner your treatment begins after a sports injury, the sooner you are back to doing what you love.

Chad saved my life! I know that sounds extreme, but hear me out. I love to run, and I do it every day. Last year I got a patellar tendonitis and it kept me from running from July 2015 until April 2016. I did every stretch or therapy I could find on the internet. I went to a chiropractor and did physical therapy, but no amount of rest or treatment seemed to help at all. After seeing Chad 3 times I was able to run without any pain at all. Since I had tried so many things I was skeptical that anything would work. I would highly recommend Chad Johnson Acupuncture to anyone out there suffering from any sort of injury or even just stress. He surpassed my highest expectations.

Last Hope

When you feel 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.

You don’t have to live in pain.

In Chinese Medicine we look at the body through the lens of what is called “Five Phases.” This includes, heart, lungs, spleen, liver, and kidneys. These organs have relationship patterns that we can balance through acupuncture and Chinese Medicine. When these organs become balanced the body can heal itself more efficiently.

We don’t look at one sick body part, we look at the health of the whole system.

When patients come in with confusing or confounding diagnoses we palpate the organs, the neck, the back, looking for imbalances or tight tender points, and then we relieve the points of imbalance and tenderness. Once these tender points subside, the body functions better. Once the body functions better, the spirit functions better. Once the spirit functions better, the mind functions better.
Many times once relief has been found, patients become more mobile, less grumpy and improvement to the quality of life is experienced, for some the first time in years.
