Getting acupuncture in Austin for back pain relief is just a phone call away. My Austin Acupuncture and Wellness Center specializes in relieving back pain of all kinds, from tight muscles to herniated discs and sciatica. One of the top causes for back pain is sprains and strains, which can be caused by an injury, poor posture, improper lifting, and overstretching. Acupuncture has been extremely effective in restoring harmony and balance to the body by stimulating the flow of qi, or energy, throughout the body. This in turn relaxes the muscles and promotes a safe and natural healing process, reducing chronic back pain and improving daily function. Acupuncture points for neck and back pain can involve placing needles in several local points on the back, but distal points on the hands and feet may also be used. Another service that my Austin Acupuncture and Wellness Center provides to alleviate neck and back pain is cupping. Cupping is when an acupuncturist applies small glass cups to the back or neck, creating a suction which increases circulation and resolves blood stasis. If you or someone you know is looking for back pain relief, give us a call. Acupuncture in Austin has never felt better!
