Our Specialties

Treat fibromyalgia naturally

If you have experienced 3 months or more of widespread pain from tender points all over your body, you may have fibromyalgia. This condition is linked to chronic fatigue, morning stiffness, sleep problems, headaches, numbness in feet and hands, and depression and anxiety. Fibromyalgia is most common among women 20—50 years old. At SOMA, we incorporate acupuncture, massage and physical therapy and suggest lifestyle changes to help lessen your symptoms.

Acupuncture triggers natural pain relief

Chinese medicine treats pain and other health problems by inserting thin needles into specific trigger points on your body. Although Western scientists do not know exactly how this works, it appears that acupuncture may actually block pain impulses from reaching your brain. It also increases your pain-reducing endorphin and serotonin levels. At SOMA, we use an innovative acupuncture process combined with massage, chiropractic treatment and homeopathic injections to treat your pain.

Chiropractic combined with acupuncture

Many people with acute back pain, headaches and neck pain seek help from a chiropractor. These practitioners are trained in hands-on manipulation, adjusting bones to restore mobility of your joints. At SOMA, our chiropractor incorporates acupuncture into his treatment of your muscle sprains, sports injuries and the pain caused by sudden injuries and accidents. This produces more effective and long lasting pain relief.

Alleviating chronic pain

The origin of chronic pain is hard to pinpoint, but its disruption of your everyday life is very real. This constant pain takes many forms: headaches, back pain, muscle stiffness and shooting and burning pain. Living with chronic pain may lead to anxiety, depression, obesity or an inability to perform daily activities. At SOMA, we examine all aspects of your life to find and treat the root cause of your chronic pain. Treatment includes acupuncture, massage, physical therapy, homeopathic injections and chiropractic.

Helping muscles heal

Physical therapy can relieve pain and muscle stiffness. It also promotes healing and restores your previous function and movement. Therapists teach you relaxation, stretching and strengthening exercises. When combined with massage and acupuncture, you can get relief from deep muscle pain and improve your range of motion. At SOMA, we believe that physical therapy not only helps you after an injury, but can also help prevent future injuries by increasing your muscle strength.
