People seek pain treatment for a variety of reasons. You may have injured yourself and have pain in your back, knees, elbows, wrists, hands, neck, legs, feet, head or jaw, or perhaps you didn’t injure yourself but have developed pain just from the natural wear and tear of your body. Regardless of the source, it is necessary to seek professional treatment from a pain management specialist.
As an acupuncture physician, I am trained to formulate patterns. We do not just treat symptoms because they are usually the manifestation of a separate cause and if we simply treat the symptom, then we may alleviate your symptom, only to see it resurface or manifest elsewhere in the body. That is why we look at your condition and treat your body as a whole.
Whether you’ve been suffering with pain for a long time or just had a recent injury, acupuncture has been proven to be a safe and effective treatment to combat pain. What many people do not know, is that acupuncture is also quite effective in reducing pain due to migraine headaches, fibromyalgia, acid reflux and subduing the side effects of chemotherapy for cancer patients. At Boca Acupuncture we are committed to reducing and eliminating pain.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a comprehensive system of natural health care. It includes acupuncture, herbal medicine, dietary therapy, meditation and physical exercise. TCM is based on the treatment of “patterns of disharmony” rather than biomedical diagnoses.
At Boca Acupuncture, we do it differently. We are motivated to providing you the right care from the very beginning, ensuring you the best chance of alleviating or eliminating your pain and achieving sustained relief.

As many folks know all too well, smoking is a very difficult addiction to quit.
Used extensively in China, acupuncture motivates the patient and calms the increased anxiety level during the quitting period.
Our program is not magic and will require a level of commitment from you. You’ve probably been smoking for sometime now, so don’t expect immediate results.
But if you are ready, then so we are.
Experience has proven is will take about 12 weeks of treatment for someone who smokes a pack of cigarettes a day.
The role of acupuncture in smoking cessation isn’t just limited to reducing your cravings. Along with this, acupuncture will help promote relaxation and better sleep and will address the symptoms from nicotine withdrawal.
Acupuncture is also effectively used to treat damage to the bronchopulmonary and cardiovascular systems.
Traditional Chinese Medicine is not just acupuncture needles. It involves a variety of different treatment modalities usually in conjunction with acupuncture. The following are some examples of the types of treatment offered should your pattern indicate.
Used for both pain relief and diagnostic purposes, cupping involves the placement of a jar that is applied to the skin resulting in a gentle suction action. This contributes to improved circulation and stress relief.
Moxibustion has the function of warming and clearing the meridians and tonifying the body’s energy. Used in conjunction with acupuncture, moxibustion is particularly effective in the treatment of arthritis, asthma and fatigue.
Tui na (pronounced “tway nah”) is a massage technique used to relieve pain and swelling, relax muscle spasms, stimulate circulation and disperse accumulations of qi, blood and fluids.
Very similar to the treatment you might receive from your physical therapist; however at Boca Acupuncture, needles, with electrodes attached, are inserted through the skin — which offers deeper therapeutic results.
