12 Years Experienced with Chinese Medicine Relieving Pain

Chronic pain can disrupt your life – it’s important to determine the cause and get a therapy for pain relief.

Merle Friedman has practiced acupuncture for over 12 years as a licensed National Board Certified Acupuncturist. Merle is an advocate of acupuncture to help solve a large range of health issues and in particular, she has demonstrated an immediate pain relief  by using her acupuncture skills. According to Merle’s first-hand experience and feedback from her clients, acupuncture, when performed by a competent acupuncture physician,  can be very effective in pain management.

Chronic pain problems such as back pain, carpal tunnel, depression, anxiety, insomnia, and stress can be addressed by using a regular pain management program centered around acupuncture that can  effectively keep pain under control and  greatly minimize pain from interfering with a person’s quality of life.

Pain Management goes back thousands of years by the Chinese that have developed a framework and model without the technology of today to explain pain by the flow of energy and electrical impulses.  Much of what the ancient Chinese did to model pain is under investigation today and is being referenced with current biological processes such as muscle groups, hormonal messaging,  nerve chemical transfer between synapses and electrical messages within the nervous system.  In any case, Traditional Chinese Medicine, (TCM),  provides a simple and persistent model to explain Pain Management and is the basis of acupuncture to pinpoint location sites to ease the pain.

TCM identifies patterns which may contribute to pain. TCM evaluates the condition of the different organs, the patient’s lifestyle, and emotions, as well as traumatic incidents. Diagnosis is obtained by evaluating the appearance of the tongue, pulse, and in-depth questioning.

Qi is the vital source, the presence of which separates the living from the dead. Qi circulates in the body through 14 energy channels called meridians. Any disruption of this energy flow may result in pain, dysfunction, and ill-health. By stimulating certain points (acupoints) along these meridians, the acupuncturist can restore the normal flow and balance of Qi so the body systems can work together in harmony.
