Acupuncture for Pain

Beth’s patients are as diverse as their symptoms. At Beth Kearns Acupuncture, there is no “one size fits all” approach to treatment. Beth specializes in treating both emotional and physical pain.

Clients who have seen their lives transformed under Beth’s guidance and support initially came in with various physical pains such as neck or back injuries, PMS, and headaches, among others.

Acupuncture for Anxiety

needling treatmentResearch and my experience is that acupuncture can be just as effective for the mind as it can be for the body. Patients have found new life and a new sense of self after coming to see Beth with depression, anxiety, anger, grief, to name a few. Check out what our clients have to say about their experience.

Beth’s approach to treatment is unique to her: she is present and in the moment with her clients, a gifted listener and practiced professional. This combination of mindfulness and knowledge allows her and her patients to take a journey of self-discovery and change. You’ll begin to see where the 5 Elements are out of balance within you. Then you’ll learn how you can help bring them back to balance so you can feel happier and calmer again.

Acupuncture and Transition

Our sessions can produce incredibly personal breakthroughs that help you see your life from a new or different perspective. This exploration is healthy and done in a safe setting. Past sessions have helped people uncover the root of unhappiness, discomfort, or physical or emotional pain. Beth’s clients whom are in transition, such as divorce, loss, job change, often don’t realize that they can get help. Acupuncture offers an avenue to enlightening yourself about your next steps.

What can I expect at my treatment?

taking pulse closeupMany of my clients have never had acupuncture before while others are very familiar with the practice. During our initial meeting, we will discuss your personal reason(s) for seeking acupuncture, medical history, lifestyle, and body systems. Then after a brief physical exam where we identify any physical pains and take your pulse and blood pressure, we put everything together. My goal when we begin treatment is to tailor your experience to your individual treatment plan. The first visit typically is up to 1.5 hours.

From here, follow-up visits are up to 45 minutes including a brief check-in on you and your treatment. I invite you to read more about what to expect here.

Frequently Asked Questions

Acupuncture needles are about the size of a human hair and are solid. They feel NOTHING like a doctor’s injection. You won’t feel the needle until it contacts the energy. This sensation if often described as a dull ache or a buzz.

Yes. The needles are sterile and disposed of after each use.

I won’t know until we begin treatment because each person is different and responds differently to treatment. As a very general rule, I recommend you plan to come in once a week for six weeks. This usually allows enough time to begin creating a good foundation of energy. At the end of the six weeks, I can re-evaluate and hopefully begin spreading out treatments to bi-weekly, and eventually seasonal visits.

earthAcupuncture works by using moxabustion and needles to balance the energy. Moxabustion is a technique which uses an herb called Artemisia Vulgaris, also known as mugwort or moxa. The moxa is rolled into a small cone and burned on the acupuncture point to warm and prepare the energy to be needled. Then the needle is inserted to directly affect the energy.
what is cuppingCupping is technique using glass cups that are applied to the skin to create suction. This suction removes stagnation and detoxifies the blood. Cupping can be extremely helpful for chest colds, especially at the onset. It’s also helpful in relieving back aches, tension, stiffness, and pain. Afterwards, you will leave feeling very relaxed!
