Distal Needling 101: Commonly Asked Questions

“Why did you put needles in my leg when the pain is in my shoulder?”

Here’s why!

1. There are more nerves in you arms and legs, particularly below the elbows and knees.

Higher nerve density= more brain stimulation= more pain relief.

You get better pain relief when using distal needles because needling your arms and legs releases more endorphins and pain-modulating substances.

 2. Needling from the elbows down and knees down makes NE Community Acupuncture and Wellness Center more accessible and affordable.

Most of the points we need to access are below the elbows and knees.  Simply roll up your sleeves and pant legs- no one needs to undress!  This way we can see more people an hour and keep our prices affordable.

At NE Community Acupuncture we are happy to place needles in the body and get out of the way!  YOUR body is capable of healing itself and we simply provide the stimulation for it to do so.   We provide effective, gentle and efficient acupuncture treatments for everyone.

Community acupuncture is a nationwide movement to create access to acupuncture by removing the barrier of cost from healing.
