Acupuncture can be effective in treatment of pain. In Chinese medicine terms we generally consider pain as stagnation, as energy that’s stuck and that needs to move. An understanding of the causes of that stagnation and how to move it is important in order to relieve pain. We may use additional techniques such as cupping or electro acupuncture in order to do this.
