What Can We Treat?
The most common condition treated by Jason Moore, L.Ac., our acupuncturist in our Fort Bragg acupuncture clinic is muscle, joint, nerve, and back pain. Acupuncture is a wonderful (many would argue, the best) treatment option for all types of pain. Aside from being extremely effective, there are nearly zero side-effects! Considering the alternative (medications or surgery), and their risks, people are increasingly turning to acupuncture as their pain relief treatment of choice. In one University of Maryland study, 47.6% of patients obtained benefit from acupuncture treatment, where only 27.4% who used medication and physical therapy found relief from pain.
Although it is commonly seen in our clinic, pain is only one of countless disorders that are known to respond well to acupuncture therapy. Some of the more common conditions treated by our coastal Mendocino acupuncturist include:

Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine can be used to treat people of all ages, from newborns to senior citizens.
Athletes, dancers, yoga practitioners, and other health conscious individuals, frequent our office to stay at the top of their performance. We also see many people who do not have a good treatment option from their doctor. Often times, we can help!
Many people around the world use acupuncture and Chinese Medicine as their preventative care. There is a famous Chinese saying, “Treating an illness once it has begun is like digging a well after you are already thirsty.” By treating a person BEFORE they become injured or sick, we can help reduce health care costs, strengthen the body, minimize lost hours at work, increase quality of life, and help people maintain a healthy state of well-being. As an added bonus, nearly everyone who has an acupuncture treatment comes out of the office feeling refreshed and relaxed!
