“I WILL DEVOTE MY ENERGY TO A LIFETIME OF HEALING THROUGH ACUPUNCTURE”
Dr. Shan Kong




“THERE WERE FOUR THINGS WHICH THE MASTER TAUGHT—LETTERS, ETHICS, DEVOTION OF SOUL, AND TRUTHFULNESS"
Confucius
(552 B.C.—479 B.C.)








Acupuncture for Muscle Spasm

Muscles are designed to relax and contract in response to signals from the brain and spinal cord carried along specialist nerve cells. Each one of these muscles is potentially vulnerable to muscle spasm, also known as muscle cramp, or charley horse.

How does acupuncture work for Muscle Spasm

Acupuncture can offer a drug-free solution with lasting benefits. The muscles spasm mostly caused by excess calcium accumulates in the muscles or lower absorption of potassium. Acupuncture not only balances trace elements of human body such as calcium and potassium to loosen muscles; but also decreases pain by blocking pain receptors in the brain and nervous system; Reduces inflammation in the muscles and the entire body; Relaxes blood vessels and decreases blood pressure, which restores health circulation; Balances brain chemistry to increase the production of serotonin, GABA and melatonin, which helps patients relax and fall asleep.

An effective acupuncture session should help to relax muscles in spasm. If patients suffer from chronic cramping, might need a series of treatments.

Course of treatment

There are 10-15 acupuncture sessions in one course of treatment. Treatment frequency depends on individual condition. Chinese herbs work synergistically with acupuncture.
