Why our natural back pain treatment works so well:

WE KEEP IT SIMPLE.

Complicated doesn't always mean more sophisticated, or better. Sometimes it's the simple approach that gets the biggest result. We work to identify the clearest treatments for your specific pain and go from there. These treatments may include acupuncture, herbal supplements, and simple, doable lifestyle tweaks to get the strongest impact in your pain relief.

WE USE A PROVEN SYSTEM THAT HAS BEEN TREATING BACK PAIN SUCCESSFULLY AND NATURALLY FOR CENTURIES

You may have been told that there’s nothing to be done for your back pain except to manage the pain. We do things differently. We work on getting you pain relief, but we also work on healing your body, with acupuncture, herbal supplements and simple lifestyle recommendations, to show your body a way out of pain, not just managing your pain.

WE GET TO THE ROOT OF WHAT IS CAUSING YOUR BACK PAIN

Bulging discs? Pulled muscles? Nerve impingement? Compression? We work on breaking the pain cycle your body has established and address the cause. Why do your muscles keep spasming? We go there. Why are your discs bulging? We want to address that. What is causing the nerve pain? Let’s get to the bottom of the pain so that we it doesn’t keep coming back.

WE REMIND YOUR BODY HOW TO LIVE WITHOUT PAIN

Bodies are wise—they want to be efficient. Pain is efficient—it is s signal that things are jammed up somewhere. By breaking up the traffic jam, we break the cycle of pain and give your body an alternative route—an easier way, without pain. It doesn’t happen overnight, but over time, the body remembers that it can live without pain, and that it used to live without this pain. We wake up the body’s natural healing mechanism to get back to this state of well-being, pain-free.

WE FOCUS ON HOW YOU FEEL, NOT JUST THE X-RAYS, MRIs, AND SCANS

Did you know that some folks have bulging discs, but no pain? Medical imaging can be a fantastic tool, but it is not the final word. The final word we believe in is how you feel. Can you take a walk? Can you go about your daily business? Are you having more good days? That’s our marker for getting you well again.

OUR APPROACH ALWAYS INCLUDES SIMPLE LIFESTYLE RECOMMENDATIONS TO MAINTAIN A HEALTHY BACK AND SPINE

We meet each patient where they are at in their health journey, and give appropriate recommendations based upon that. Sometimes it’s a simple stretch. Sometimes it’s a doable lifestyle tweak. Sometimes it’s focus on getting a little more sleep. Our goal is for you to feel good in your body and your life, and we provide tools for you to get there faster. 

Just as we are all individuals, back pain is a unique type of pain.

It shows up differently in different people. Our holistic methods look at the person and the pain, and we treat the big picture. The goal is always pain relief, but getting to the bottom of what is causing the pain relief is part of the long-term strategy to alleviate the source of pain. Our bodies want to be efficient. It actually takes a lot more work to live in a pattern of pain that it does to live in health. Our techniques remind the body that healing is a more efficient method of operating and that living without pain takes less energy.

We work with you to find the best combination for your unique condition. Here’s how our specialized combination of four powerful, time-tested, 100% natural therapies work to heal your back pain and remind your body how to live in health.

GENTLE
ACUPUNCTURE

Our specialty is gentle acupuncture. Acupuncture has been healing bodies for centuries, by awakening and stimulating your own body’s innate healing process. It restores cells and tissues, cleans up what doesn’t belong there, and gets blood flow moving to reduce pain.

Herbal
Supplements

Herbal supplements simultaneously cure and strengthen the body. This is an important approach for back pain — herbal supplements can trigger great pain relief while working on strengthening the body to prevent further pain and degeneration. This combination makes herbal medicine particularly well-suited to addressing all kinds of back pain and its causes.

FUNCTIONAL NUTRITiONAL THERAPY

When your bones, muscles and cells are fully nourished with the specific nutrients they need, these tissues naturally function at a very high level. When tissues are functioning at a high level, there’s far less opportunity for pain to set in.

RELAXATION &
STRESS REDUCTION

When your body is in a state of relaxation, it is able to do repair at the deepest level. In this state, your muscles, bones, and nerves become more synchronized and calm — creating the perfect stage for health and healing. This means a less inflammation, better circulation, more range of motion, a calmer mind, more energy and better mood.

THE PROCESS IS SIMPLE

1

FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION

At your free initial consultation, you’ll meet with Julie to discuss your back pain, your medical history, medications you are currently taking, and most importantly, your goals. We want to be certain that our back pain relief program is a good fit for your needs and that there is a high probability of success for you, before we move forward to the next step. Click here to meet with us for your free consultation.


2

DETAILED ASSESSMENT & TREATMENT PLAN

After your free consultation with Julie, and we agree that this program is a good fit for you, the next step forward is the Intake Appointment. At this visit, Julie will do a thorough assessment of your pain pattern, medical history, and other factors to identify the root cause of your back pain to devise the right treatment approach for you, based upon the goals you have discussed. 

After this assessment, you will receive your first acupuncture treatment, and you will be given a treatment plan with simple, easy-to-follow instructions Your treatment plan includes dietary and lifestyle adjustments as well as herbal supplements to address the root of YOUR back pain. 


3

Treatment & Symptom Resolution

You’ll return for weekly visits to ensure close support as you begin to feel your body establishing a new pattern. We want to make sure your treatment plan is providing you with:

  • Pain relief
  • Improved mobility
  • Possible reduction in pain meds
  • More “good days” — energy, mood, stamina
  • Better sensation and increased strength

You’ll also receive acupuncture at each visit to ensure that your musculoskeletal and nervous system is rebalancing to return to its original pattern of health. 


4

Transitional Care As Improvements Are Maintained

Once we see improvements that are maintaining over time, we will start spacing visits out further apart. This usually occurs after 8 to 12 visits, with some individual variability. We will go from weekly visits to visits every 10 to 14 days, then once a month, then on an as-needed basis for “tuneups.” We are here for you, in case you have other healthcare issues you want to address, or feel like your back is prone to more injury during a particular time or activity. Of course, many of our patients wish to continue with regular maintenance, and we are always happy to work with you on that level, if that is your wish.
