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 is an integrative, primary health care option for billions of people around the world, including many right here in our communities in Fort Bragg and Mendocino County. Acupuncture is commonly used to treat people of all ages, from newborns to senior citizens.
For athletes, dancers, yoga practitioners, and other health conscious individuals, acupuncture is a complimentary / alternative therapy to standard western medicine treatment (medication, surgery, or physical therapy). Often, it is the best or only option available for a specific condition (eg. recovery from spinal surgery).
Many others utilize acupuncture and Chinese Medicine as preventative care, which reduces health care costs, strengthens the body, minimizes lost hours at work, increases quality of life, and helps them maintain a healthy state of well-being. In fact, nearly everyone who has an acupuncture treatment comes out of the office feeling refreshed and relaxed.
In ancient China, great emphasis was placed upon keeping people healthy. It was considered a hardship to, reserve treatment for a time of crisis. There is an ancient saying, “Treating an illness once it has begun is like digging a well after you are already thirsty.” This embodies the true essence of Chinese Medicine as preventative care.
