What is motor point acupuncture?
When muscles are injured or overused, they can develop tight, painful bands that constrict their nerve endings. This causes the development of a negative feedback cycle in which the nervous system becomes unable to fully relax or contract the affected muscles, causing weakness, pain, and spasm.
Motor point acupuncture is a research-based modality developed to treat orthopedic conditions. It works by stimulating specific spots in each muscle that cause a localized twitch that serves as a "hard reset," returning the muscle fibers to their normal length and elasticity. A significant improvement in pain and range of motion is obtained with proper needling of these points.

Treating Autoimmune Diseases and Emotional Disorders
Acupuncture can restore balance to the immune system and relieve the symptoms associated with auto-immune conditions. Acupuncture works to release endorphins that shift the patient’s perception of pain without side effects and taxing the other systems of the body. Regularly scheduled acupuncture treatments can be a relaxing lifestyle choice that aids in the prevention of chronic health issues due to stress, which plays a major role in “flare ups”. Acupuncture along with nutritional strategies are key to restoring immune function and proper regulation systemically.
