Who Can Benefit From Acupuncture with Jess?
Individuals suffering from acute and chronic pain can use acupuncture to treat their condition and help relieve their pain. Whether you have tendonitis, a sprained ankle, a rotator cuff injury, tennis elbow or a previous injury, acupuncture combined with electro-stimulation (IMS), can help you recover quickly and get you back to doing the things you enjoy most in life.
How Does Acupuncture and Electro-stimulation Help Treat My Injury?
It depends on the stage of the injury but the treatment can:
- stimulate the injured area to promote blood flow and decrease inflammation to speed up the healing process
- help the fibers of the injured tissue to align, allowing them to heal properly before scar tissue forms
- break down scar tissue from a previous injury, which can be a source of pain and
I’m Afraid of Needles. How Am I Supposed to Get Acupuncture?
The goal of Jessica’s treatments is not to cause pain. She has treated several patients with a fear of needles and most of them walk away wondering what they were so worried about. Acupuncture can be a comfortable experience once your body knows what to expect. If at anytime you are feeling pain, just let Jess know, and she will make adjustments until you are comfortable.

How Many Acupuncture Treatments Will I Need?
This all depends on the individual and the injury being treated. It’s important to ask specifically about your condition. Usually patients will need to commit to 3 treatments in a 2 week period at which point their progress is re-assessed. It is rare that treatment continues consecutively beyond 10 treatments.
