Welcome to Red Door Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine
Harvard Health, following new recommendations from the American College of Physicians, now recommends non-drug therapies as first-line treatment for low back pain. The ACP states that “. First-line therapy should include nondrug therapy, such as superficial heat, massage, acupuncture, or spinal manipulation.” At Red Door we utilize traditional acupuncture techniques along with trigger point acupuncture to effectively and quickly reduce and eliminate pain.

Cupping hit the world stage this week at the Rio Olympics with many athletes displaying their cupping marks! At Red Door, we routinely combine cupping with acupuncture to reduce pain both from chronic muscle tension, sports injury or repetitive stress. Cupping creates suction over an area of pain or muscle tension. The suction can leave a red circular mark that is a non-traumatic (i.e. not painful!) bruise. The suction can help to break up scar tissue from a repetitive stress injury and relax tight muscles. Over the next couple of days the body responds to the area to resolve the circular marks, bringing increased blood flow.
A new study supports the use of acupuncture for reduction of pain in Fibromyalgia. Like acupuncture treatment at Red Door, Acupuncture treatments in this study were tailored to the individual and participants reported a 41% reduction in their perceived pain score.
