Pain Management Q & A

What is pain management?

Pain management at Erzhena Acupuncture uses holistic methods to stimulate natural healing and ease ongoing pain. The practice provides an array of solutions that eliminate chronic discomfort, particularly migraines, so you can avoid invasive treatments and harsh pain medicines. 

Migraines are severe headaches that may also cause nausea, vomiting, light sensitivity, throbbing pain, weakness, or fatigue. They often feel crippling when not addressed.

If you develop severe or ongoing pain and need relief, see the Erzhena Acupuncture team for an evaluation.

Which pain management options are best for me?

Your Erzhena Acupuncture provider discusses your symptoms, medications, medical history, and lifestyle to determine if you’re a candidate for pain management and which solutions best suit you. They personalize a treatment plan that provides safe and long-lasting relief. 

Your specialist lets you know what to expect before, during, and after treatment and how many treatments you may need to achieve the best results. 

Which holistic pain management solutions are available?

Erzhena Acupuncture provides the following natural pain management options:


Acupuncture, including neuro acupuncture (scalp acupuncture), uses tiny needles to promote natural tissue healing, improved blood flow, and diminished pain. Your specialist may manipulate the needles or emit electric pulses through them. Each treatment usually lasts 20-60 minutes.


Cupping treatments use gentle suction to remove body toxins, relax tense tissues, and optimize your body’s natural healing mechanisms.

Gua sha

Gua sha uses a dull tool to scrape your skin, release toxins, stimulate healing, and strengthen your immune system.


Moxibustion involves burning an herb called mugwort (moxa) close to the surface of your skin to promote energy flow, optimal circulation, faster healing, and less pain.

You might need more than one holistic treatment to achieve long-lasting and highly effective pain relief.
