Acupuncture offers drug-free treatment for many conditions

Many Americans are afraid to try acupuncture because the thought of needles makes us nervous. But acupuncture can relieve even serious pain and treat many conditions.

And far from being stressful, most patients describe the treatments as “relaxing.”

A skilled practitioner like Shouchun Ma, PhD, or Lanli Ma, Licensed Acupuncturist, can set your mind at ease and start you on the road to better health.

Acupuncture uses very fine, single-use disposable needles. These stimulate precise points just barely beneath the skin – “it’s very light and relaxed,” says Marlena Ma, owner of Ma’s Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Clinic in Seattle and Bellevue.

“Many people say they feel much better right after they receive treatment.”

A litany of conditions and diseases can be helped through acupuncture. All kinds of pain – whether from injury, fibromyalgia, migraine, PMS or other gynelogical issues, even side-effects of cancer treatment – can be successfully treated.

“Many cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy come in to get pain relief,” says Lanli Ma. “And chemotherapy can weaken the immune system. Traditional Chinese medicine, including acupuncture, can help patients with their immune systems.”

Acupuncture can also be used as part of a smoking cessation strategy, to relieve stress, or to overcome infertility.

With more than 40 years experience in China, Europe and the USA, including 20 years at his Seattle clinic, Dr. Shouchun Ma says Americans respond very well to acupuncture treatment, and many conditions can be resolved with fewer than five sessions.

Dr. Ma has earned many appointments and distinctions, and is deeply respected by his current and former patients.

Acupuncture is endorsed by the World Health Organization and by the National Institutes of Health, and is covered by many health insurance plans. A petition effort is underway to support House Resolutions that would cover acupuncture for seniors and Veterans through Medicare.
