“Specializing in Acute and Chronic Pain Care Management”

Welcome to Acupuncture Pain Care Management of Bel Air. As a practitioner of acupuncture and Oriental Medicine for over 18 years I have repeatedly observed how incredibly effective acupuncture can be in alleviating chronic and acute pain. It has been my experience that the majority of patients seeking acupuncture are suffering from some sort of pain related issue. 

Acupuncture therapy when properly administered will often induce immediate pain relief along with increased mobility and a sense of deep relaxation. 


Many patient’s who are new to acupuncture will often ask whether acupuncture simply masks pain? Acupuncture not only reduces pain, but can support the body’s capacity to heal by increasing blood flow, reducing inflammatory responses as well as correcting internal imbalances that often contribute to chronic pain. 

Patients who are experiencing post operative pain and mobility issues, musculoskeletal pain, arthritis, migraines and sports injuries, trauma from accidents, sciatica, back and neck pain can expect relief through acupuncture and Oriental medicine
