Pain Management with Acupuncture

Acupuncture is well known for its ability to reduce and eliminate pain. At Alpine Holistic Medicine, Dr Bradford Lester has had great success treating a wide variety of pain conditions.  Patients have limped, hobbled, shuffled into his clinic full of pain, able to Walk tall and pain free after just one session of Acupuncture and Dao Qi therapies.  Many times a series of sessions is needed to clear a pain pattern.  Usually the more acute the pain the quicker it is to clear, while the more chronic the longer it takes to shift the energy.  Acupuncture helps to balance energies and remove blockages from the body to allow it to move freely.  Acupuncture also increases blood flow and nutrient delivery to painful places so that they may heal more rapidly.
