I am amazed at how many of us (me included) have issues with neck and shoulder pain. The reason I titled this article “the Pain in the Neck,” is because it points to the body/mind/spirit conversation that eastern medicine always addresses.
… But, Your Acupuncturist Can Warm You Up
Yes… its true. Chinese medicine has A LOT of ‘tricks up its sleeve’ when it comes to warming you up.
Let’s talk about the winter season first.
It’s finally Spring… the realm of the Wood element according to Chinese Medicine. As you recall, the Chinese 5-elements incorporate the seasons (the extra being Late Summer/ Earth; I’ll address the Earth element more thoroughly later this summer).
I am often asked this question when a conversation comes up about stomach disorders and acupuncture. ‘‘CAN ACUPUNCTURE HELP ME TO STOP NEEDING ANTACIDS ALL THE TIME?” or “WHAT ABOUT MY HEARTBURN?”

Kevin called me last summer asking is acupuncture could help him with his neck pain. He described himself as having ‘mild cerebral palsy’ secondary to birth injury.
