Dealing with pain from an injury or trauma is hard enough. But when you are also not able to perform simple chores at home or play with your child without pain, then frustration and anxiety can set in. The loss of independence, having to ask for a ride to the store, or help with everyday matters leads to further tension and anger. These are all situations that will likely happen to us at some point in our lives. If your pain is left untreated, you will be facing these issues sooner. Any athletic injury is frustrating and untimely. Being unsure how long it will take to return to training can be overwhelming.

Acupuncture in Albuquerque - is it right for me?
Acupuncture is based on the concepts of oriental medicine or traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and is one of the oldest healing practices in the world. Albuquerque acupuncturists are health care professionals who evaluate and treat the many conditions, aches and pains that respond to acupuncture.

Acupuncturists insert very fine acupuncture needles into the body. The purpose of the needles is to stimulate acupuncture points or meridians. The needles do not inject any substance into your body and are so fine as to be virtually impossible to feel. In some cases, acupuncture may be accompanied by electrical stimulation or the burning of moxa, a form of heat therapy. Or use acupressure, where physical pressure is applied by hand or elbow to trigger points with the aim of clearing blockages in these meridians.

'Accupuncture' and 'Accupuncturist' are common mis-spellings.
