Acupuncture Therapy - Green Lake Chiropractor

ACUPUNCTURE IS A POWERFUL TOOL THAT PROMOTES HEALING AND AIDS IN THE PREVENTION OF FURTHER INJURIES.

Acupuncture engages both the musculoskeletal system and the meridian system (the overall energy distribution of the body) which allows the body to rebalance not only the local issue, but also the bigger picture systemic issues to promote healing and prevent further injuries or recurrences.

But, healing starts with listening! We'll focus on listening to you on all levels - physical, mental, and emotional. Doing so allows us to hear what your body is really saying in order to understand you as a whole and get to the root of the problem. It is our day-to-day choices and our lifestyles that influence our overall health the most. Understanding how we live our lives and how we desire to live our lives is a starting point to create change.

Acupuncturist Sofina Lin has been in the healthcare field for over 15 years and exclusively practicing acupuncture in Seattle for several years. She combines her knowledge and skills as an acupuncturist and her background in physical medicine to bridge the gap between ancient traditional Chinese medicine and modern western medicine. The merging of 3,000 year old healing practices with modern science and technology means you receive the best of both words when it comes to optimal well-being.

More on Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a form of alternative medicine used most commonly for pain relief and to stimulate and support the body’s healing response. Originating in ancient Chinese medicine, acupuncture has been embraced across the globe.

Acupuncture engages both the musculoskeletal system and the meridian system. Its purpose is to rebalance local tissue as well as address systemic issues to promote healing and prevent further injury.

Acupuncture is used primarily to treat musculoskeletal conditions, including lower back pain, muscle stiffness, sciatica, and fibromyalgia. Acupuncture is generally used in the service for nonspecific, noninflammatory pain. Tangelo recommends the use of acupuncture in specific instances and always in conjunction with more comprehensive manual therapy and movement service plans.

Acupressure is another healing technique similar to acupuncture. With acupressure, physical pressure is applied to specific points on the body, with the purpose of clearing blockages and allowing energy to flow freely through the meridians. Such pressure may be applied by hand or with special acupressure devices.

If you are in Seattle’s Greenlake neighborhood, try acupuncture therapy by booking an appointment at Tangelo Green Lake.
