Acupuncture for Pain

Most of us have experienced pain at some point in our lives while others live with it every day. For more than a century, acupuncture has been effectively and non-invasively treating all types of pain.

Acupuncture focuses on the underlying cause rather than masking symptoms temporarily. Using the twelve meridians to balance the body’s restorative Qi, acupuncture and Chinese medicine return the body to its natural equilibrium. It facilitates healing by reducing inflammation and swelling, speeding up the healing process, increasing necessary blood flow to the affected area, and providing both immediate and long-term pain relief. In addition, the free and harmonious flow of Qi translates into a feeling of well-being and vitality of the body, mind, and spirit.

At Lokahi, our holistic approach to treating pain may integrate acupuncture, cupping, massage, electrical stimulation, gua sha, dietary changes and herbal medicine. Our goal is to provide swift and successful results for each of our patients.

I’ve had many opportunities to have acupuncture here and in China.  It’s been my experience that to have good results, you need to find someone really good, who knows what they’re doing! In the south bay area, I have not found anyone better than Lokahi acupuncturists!!

My experience at Lokahi has helped build a sense of confidence in myself that I can manage my condition and continue to live a very rewarding and pain free life.  If you’re contemplating acupuncture services, I highly recommend Ann Marie, and Lokahi in general, as I’m certain everyone who works there is just as wonderful given the reviews I read.

I got to see Cara and she first explained the procedure in great detail and after many questions, put together a good plan. While I was nervous, it faded away quickly and I also started to feel the impact very fast. My first session was a great success (sciatic never pain for me). The entire office is very friendly and warm, clean with a calming atmosphere.

Finding JB was the best accident. He’s help me figure out how to care for my pain, but even better the source of my pain! The rest of the team is very personable and welcoming. And I really appreciate the cleanliness and happy plants that live there too.

I have been a client for a few years and have worked with a number of practitioners. Everyone is awesome at Lokahi. You can not go wrong by choosing anyone. I have referred friends and family and highly recommend this acupuncture group.

I went back to Lokahi this weekend and was having terrible right shoulder pain, tenderness, stiffness. I had my session with Susannah amd she recommended trying cupping therapy which I have never tried on myself, but had heard of it. Let me tell you!!! My pain, tenderness and stiffness improved 90% after my first session!!

I have been working with JB for my chronic migraines and they have significantly decreased over time. It is also just nice to be seen and taken care of seriously for migraines. I am always excited when it is time for my appointment, even when I do have a migraine that day for I know that JB will make it much less painful.
