Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine treatment is fantastic for a variety of different pain and injury syndromes. Acupuncture works with the nervous system to interrupt pain/ spasm pathways, regulates the inflammatory process, and releases your body’s own natural endorphins to aid in pain control. Due to this strong effect on the nervous system and endorphins patients usually leave feeling very relaxed. Alicia has advanced training in pain and injury treatment with specialists including Dr. Viet Tran, Matt Callison, Whitfield Reaves, and Mark Seem. She integrates information she receives through western orthopedic testing, palpation, and Traditional Chinese Medicine diagnosis to create a custom treatment that will best help you. She often utilizes gentle trigger point and motor point needling when needed. Massage/ Bodywork, Cupping, and Gua Sha may also be used as part of treatment.
