In Western Medicine, pain management, is one of the weakest areas. The solution has always been addictive painkillers which kill 60,000 people each year.

So, why is this our first option when we are struggling with pain?

Here are Team Acupuncture, we invite patients to change their mindset. How about trying the least risky option first. We want for patients to think of painkillers and surgery as the “alternative”.

Here are some reasons, why Eastern medicine may be a better way for you to get help with your pain

  • Eastern medicine looks into the cause and understands the mechanism of pain. It wants to solve the problem, not cover it up with drugs.
  • It is proven to be effective. Millions of people use this treatment on the other side of the world and live happy without pain and never have to take drugs.
  • American athletes
  • Many prestigious hospitals, including Mayo Clinic and the Cleveland Clinic are now using acupuncture to help their patients manage their pain.
  • American athletes are now using Eastern medicine such as Acupuncture and cupping, as we have seen with Michael Phelps in the last Olympics (picture de Michael Phelps con las marcas de Cupping en su espalda) because they have tried it and it works.
  • The ACP, American College of Physicians, issued a new guideline last year that strongly discourages opioids and recommends alternatives that include acupuncture.

About Dr. Long

Dr. Iris (Yue) Long


Born in a family of generations of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) doctors and educators, I have long been pondering around the relations among patients,doctors, diseases, struggles and the nature. While the modern science and technology have greatly improved life expectancy and eradicated many disastrous plagues, much more areas remain unknown. Even worse, many chemical centered medications bring up severe side effects, sometimes fatal or irreparable.


To some extent, the Conventional Western Medicine side effects are rooted in its philosophy, Mechanism, which focuses on the disease, instead of the patient. On the contrary, TCM philosophy – Vitalism, focuses on the patient, believing in balanced energy within human body, harmony between mind and body, and unity with the Mother Nature. With TCM, the healing process is not about the doctor diagnosing the disease, followed by the chemicals fighting against bacteria. It’s more about the TCM doctor teaming up with the patient, helping the patient regain balance of energy, guiding the patient toward mind and body harmony, and celebrating the unity of healthy elements.

What Can You Expect from Acupuncture Treatments?

To determine the type of acupuncture treatment that will help you the most, your practitioner may ask you about your symptoms, behaviors and lifestyle.

He or she may also closely examine:

  • The parts of your body that are painful
  • The shape, coating and color of your tongue
  • The color of your face
  • The strength, rhythm and quality of the pulse in your wrist

This initial evaluation may take up to 60 minutes. Subsequent appointments usually take about a half-hour. A common treatment plan for a single complaint would typically involve one or two treatments a week. Number of treatments will depend on the condition being treated and its severity, but six to eight treatments are common.

During Your Acupuncture Visit

Acupuncture points are situated in all areas of the body. Sometimes the appropriate points are far removed from the area of your pain. Your acupuncture practitioner will tell you the general site of the planned treatment and if you need to remove any clothing. If appropriate, a gown, towel or sheet will be provided to preserve your modesty.

You lie on a padded table for the treatment, which involves:

Needle Insertion

Acupuncture needles are very thin, so insertion usually causes little discomfort. Between five and 20 needles are used in a typical treatment. You may feel a mild aching sensation when a needle reaches the correct depth.

Needle manipulation.

Your practitioner may gently move or twirl the needles after placement or apply heat or mild electrical pulses to the needles.

Needle removal

In most cases, the needles remain in place for 10 to 20 minutes while you lie still and relax. There is usually no discomfort when the needles are removed.

After Acupuncture Treatment

Some people feel relaxed and others feel energized after an acupuncture treatment. But not everyone responds to acupuncture. If your symptoms don’t begin to improve within a few weeks, acupuncture may not be right for you.
