Pain relief using acupuncture & herbal remedies

Pain relief is one of the main reasons for patients to seek acupuncture treatments.
Focused healing treatments are necessary to invoke a healing response from our body’s own natural resources. 

How Does Acupuncture Help Relieve Pain?

Traditional Chinese acupuncture involves the insertion of extremely fine needles into the skin at specific “acupoints.” This may relieve pain by releasing endorphins, the body’s natural pain-killing chemicals, and by affecting the part of the brain that governs serotonin, a brain chemical involved with mood.

In Chinese acupuncture, the acupuncturist may turn or twirl the needles slightly or apply heat or electrical stimulation to enhance the effects. He or she may also burn a therapeutic herb near the skin; this is called moxibustion. The read more click here


Yelp Review #8–  I’ve had back pains/tightness on and off for the past ~8 years.  The acupuncture + cupping treatments from Zen really helped loosen my tight back and instantaneously relieved a lot of the pain.  In addition, Zen is a very attentive listener, easy to talk to, and provides a client-centered approach to her practice.  For those wanting to try out acupuncture for the first time or looking for a higher quality acupuncturist than previous experiences, I highly advise seeing Zen. – Kevin X.  (1/18/2014)

Yelp Review #3– Zen is the best! I had this irritating lower back problem that just wouldn’t go away. I took medication, I went to a chiro, but nothing worked until I went to Zen. In just a few sessions I could definitely feel the difference. I am definitely going to her now on a set schedule. Highly recommend! – Fanny C. (2/24/19) 

Yelp review #43Thank you Dr. Zen for providing such a wonderful first time experience!!  I was soo very nervous since I don’t like needles, but so happy I’ve came to you for healing. I had a lot of upper/lower back pain and my right wrist was hurting from all the text communication I do for work. After my first treatment, I woke up this am feeling very refreshed, no heaviness in my body or soul that I had felt for months! My body feels amazing, less pain in my upper/lower back and wrist too.  I can’t wait to come back for more sessions and continue my treatment for fertility planning too!! You’ll most definitely have all of my colleagues and friends coming to you for support and healing. You’re the BEST and again thank you so much Dr. Zen!!  – Britt S. (2/21/2020)
