Marina del Rey Acupuncture Treatments

Relieving Pain, Stress & Imbalance in Santa Monica & Marina del Rey

Acupuncture is a therapeutic treatment hailing from Eastern medicine that involves inserting extremely thin needles at a specific point, and to a specific depth, on a person’s body. The original idea behind acupuncture relates to the energies (also called qi, or chi) in your body needing realignment, which the needles can help to provide. Your initial evaluation may be approximately an hour of our specialist determining your unique needs and how best to approach them for optimal results. Our Marina del Rey and Santa Monica acupuncturist is highly skilled and can help you with a wide variety of issues.

What Does Acupuncture Do?

According to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH), a government agency which investigates alternative medicine, acupuncture has been proven to help in numerous cases.

According to the NCCIH, acupuncture can help to address problems relating to:

  • Neck pain
  • Low back pain
  • Headache and migraine
  • Neck pain
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Knee pain

There is also evidence supporting acupuncture being a helpful treatment for conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, sciatica, tennis elbow, dental pain, and more.

What to Expect from Acupuncture Treatments

A traditional acupuncture treatment will include up to 20 thin needles placed at specific acupuncture points. Depending on what we are working to correct for you, we may manipulate the needle in some way, such as twirling it or introducing mild heat. The needles will stay in place for between 10 to 20 minutes while you relax. Because of the size of the needles and the precise placement, there is usually little to no discomfort involved in the treatment. In addition to acupuncture, there are several other options hailing from Eastern medicine which may help you feel your best.

Just a few of the other treatments we provide include:

  • Master Tong’s four needle technique
  • Chung-Ja Facial Gua Sha
  • Cupping
  • King Moxa therapy
  • Herbal prescriptions
  • Acupressure
