How It Works
Pain is caused by stuck energy. We call energy “Qi” (pronounced “Chee”). Stuck Qi will cause pain anywhere in the body. For example, daily migraines involve stuck Qi in the channels of the head and neck. Chronic back pain is Qi stagnation in the channels of the back. Sciatica (a.k.a. Piriformis syndrome, or hip pain) is stuck Qi in the channels of the hip and leg.
When pain gets very severe it often indicates that both Qi and Blood have become stagnant. This is felt as a sharp, stabbing pain or an intense achy pain.
Acupuncture improves Qi and Blood circulation. For example, a one-sided migraine that travels from the base of the skull to the temple involves Qi and Blood stagnation of a channel in the head. Acupuncture unblocks the channel, allowing Qi and Blood to circulate better, alleviating pain.
Acupuncture Heals At Multiple Levels
In addition to treating pain on the surface, acupuncture addresses the root cause of your chronic pain. Channels often get blocked due to internal imbalances at the organ level. Chronic low back pain indicates weakness of the Kidneys (not your real Kidneys, your “Chinese” Kidneys). Chronic coughing points to weakness of the Lungs. Chronic stomach pain (IBS) is rooted in weak Stomach function.
The Raleigh Acupuncture Chronic Pain treatment addresses the root and branch, the source and symptom. This allows us to achieve long lasting results.
What To Expect
All needles are sterile, single-use and hair thin. You hardly feel them. And treatments are relaxing. Many patients fall asleep during their session.
When you come for your first appointment we conduct an intake exam, determine your Chinese medicine pattern diagnosis, and create a treatment plan. You also receive an acupuncture treatment on your first visit.
From the first treatment, channels start to open, imbalances begin to be corrected, and pain is reduced. You will feel the progression back to health. Different conditions take different amounts of time to resolve. A more recent pain (2 months) will resolve faster than one you’ve had for 20 years. But the amazing thing is that the Raleigh Acupuncture chronic pain treatment CAN resolve pains that have been with you that long.
Neck Pain Testimonial
“I’m a dentist and over the last 20 years the nature of my work and positions required by my work had resulted in chronic neck pain. It affected my sleep, limited my ability to exercise, and was just a real pain in the neck! A friend at church recommended Raleigh Acupuncture and I gave it a try. I have to say that I was a bit skeptical, but gave it a try because I had tried a number other therapies with no success. I’m glad I did. They resolved my neck pain completely!” -Brent W.

What our Clients are Saying
I’m a golfer and started having trouble with my left shoulder over a year ago. My doctor wanted to do surgery, but I wanted to try other alternatives first. So I tried acupuncture. The folks at Raleigh Acupuncture were very professional, reasonably priced and did excellent work. They resolved my shoulder pain completely. I use them now for other pains in my post-50 body! Thank you Raleigh Acupuncture.

All of my joints were hurting. I’ve got fibromyalgia and it effects me by making my joints hurt. The pain would move around from place to place, first the hip, the next day the shoulder, then the knee, etc. The practitioner at Raleigh Acupuncture explained that the best way to treat my kind of moving joint pain was to treat me holistically. Instead of treating the hip one day, the shoulder the next, they treated the root of the pain. They said this type of treatment would also improve my mood and my sleep. Right on all counts. I started feeling better after the second treatment. It’s like all of the joints just settled down and stopped giving me trouble. I had less flares and the intensity of the pain went way down. My sleep is better, not just because I have less pain. I’m more relaxed and less stressed. I’ve made this treatment a regular part of my life. I’m very grateful.
I suffered from low back pain for years and tried many different remedies. When I came to Raleigh Acupuncture, they really listened to understand my issues. I can honestly say that they cured my chronic back pain. I didn’t think it was possible, after all these years. I highly recommend this practice. The doctors take the time and do good work.
