A patient mentions pain in his right shoulder. Then, an acupuncturist inserts a needle into his left ankle. Primarily focusing on the distal style of acupuncture, Acupuncture Connections' team is licensed by the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Medicine and certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, ensuring that each member knows exactly where to place each pain-battling needle. During each session, one of the acupuncturists inserts an average of 8 to 10 FDA-approved single-use needles into specific areas—along the forearms, hands, lower legs, and head—aiming to treat issues from autoimmune diseases to digestive issues to fatigue. Since distal acupuncture involves the treatment of areas normally exposed while wearing shorts and a T-shirt, patients typically don't need to remove their clothing or steel breastplates. The sessions begin with a private consultation with a practitioner who holds a master's degree in acupuncture.

Stacy McCain, help patients to maintain healthy, pain-free lives with non-invasive chiropractic care. Sufferers of stiffness, low back pain, or migraine headaches may reap the benefits of thorough chiropractic examinations, which send the doctors sleuthing over spinalscapes in search of bulging disks and stuck-on “Kick Me” signs. The treatments emphasize progressive rehabilitation, a method which allows doctor and patient to work together to track the effectiveness of treatments.
