Healing isn’t Linear
Healing isn’t magic – it takes time to happen. In the day to day it’s going to be up and down, two steps forward and one step back. I have this conversation every single day. We want change right now. We want to feel better because when you’re hurting life isn’t fun. I get it.
The thing is we can’t fight physiology. Healing times are healing times. The good news is that really only applies to acute injuries. Most chronic pains (we don’t necessarily come from trauma) they usually develop as an adaption over time and have an unknown cause.
What does this mean for you?
We CAN help to optimize how your body functions (mainly your nervous system) which makes you feel better. That’s why I’ve specialized in a special type of acupuncture (Neurofunctional Acupuncture) which helps to quickly reset and re-train how your nerves are functioning to positive adaptive changes. With repeated treatments we can retrain them to do their job efficiently and effectively.
But it takes some consistency and repetition to retrain your body and get it working well. I find that for most problems about 10 electro-acupuncture treatments can make a world of difference and the results can last 1+ year.
The good news
If you have a nervous system we can squeeze some adaptability and performance out of it. I don’t care if you’ve had pain for years and want to hurt less or you’re a high level athlete who wants to be the best they can be.
