Acupuncture, is an ancient form of medicine which is gaining more and more popularity in the US for the treatment of both acute and chronic pain. Acupuncture is the most often referred modality by MDs in the United States.
During a treatment, solid, hair thin needles are inserted at specific points, or “neural nodes” on the body. The stimulation of these points affects both the central and peripheral nervous systems, triggering the release of the body’s internal chemicals such as endorphins and enkephalins, which have pain-relieving, and regulating properties.
If you have chronic or lingering pain that is not being effectively treated by other modalities, consider acupuncture which offers a time-tested, reliable method of pain relief.

According to a National Institutes of Health consensus panel of scientists, researchers, and practitioners who convened in November 1997, clinical studies have shown that acupuncture is an effective treatment for nausea caused by surgical anesthesia and cancer-related treatments, as post-surgery pain. The National Institutes of Health panel also found that acupuncture is useful by itself or combined with conventional therapies.

Sorenson Acupuncture is awesome! Randy has an extensive educational and professional background in Chinese medicine, but most importantly his treatments are effective. A few months ago, I avoided stairs and could not walk comfortably because of arthritis pain in my knee. Although I was skeptical about acupuncture, I decided to give it a try before submitting to more intrusive procedures. Randy listened to my health issues, clearly explained what I could expect, and inserted the needles quickly and painlessly. Recently I climbed five flights of stairs without pain, and I have resumed walking for exercise and fun. I am thrilled with the results.
After a lifetime of migraines and chronic pain, too many doctors, tests and pills to count, I had given up hope; until I found Sorenson Acupuncture. Being free of pain is a miracle I will never take for granted.
Through Randy Sorenson’s gift, I am no longer merely surviving, but am finally able to live!
