What is Distal Needle Acupuncture?

Acupuncture has become well known Oriental Medicine technique in the west. Many most advanced hospitals in the United States use acupuncture to help patients. For example, the world’s most advanced cancer center, MD Anderson, located in Houston, Texas has a few acupuncturists on staff. Acupuncture relieves acute and chronic pain alleviates stress and improves vitality. Acupuncture balances the nervous system and increases blood circulation. It helps the body heal itself faster. During an acupuncture treatment, hair-thin needles are placed into specific acupuncture points. Each acupuncture point has the ability to communicate with organs and glands in the body. Acupuncture corrects the imbalances that are created in the body.

Will needles inserted in the body hurt?

Most people don’t feel any pain at all. A small percentage of people are more sensitive. I also needle babies and children and they do very well with acupuncture.

Relieving Pain with Acupuncture

Acupuncture is most commonly known to treat various conditions of pain such as low-back pain, neck pain, knee pain, and headaches to name a few.

Neuropathic Pain

Or simply nerve pain, is defined as having no structural cause, and the nerve fibers themselves might be damaged, dysfunctional, or injured. Generally, there’s a problem with aggravated sensory nerves, which will not stop firing and producing pain. 

Structural Pain

Structural problems are those where something in the body is actually pushing on a sensory nerve or a group of sensory nerves. A perfect example would be a bulging impinging on a group of spinal sensory nerves.

Treating Neuropathic Pain

Acupuncture is a neural procedure and it takes a neural procedure to solve a neural problem. Quite frankly, acupuncture is the very best way to treat these issues. Acupuncture stimulates neural nodes that affect both the central and peripheral nervous systems. These nervous system signals then trigger the brain to release the body’s internal chemicals such as endorphins and enkephalins. These both have pain-relieving properties and improve immune function. 

If everything is working properly, the body will naturally release these pain-relieving chemicals. They plug up the pain receptor sites in the brain, all along the spine, and on the capillary beds where you feel the pain. They stop chronic pain and allow the body to return to normal function.

For those patients who suffer from chronic discomfort, this mechanism is no longer working.  The neural signal from the site of pain to the brain has diminished over time and is no longer triggering the brain to release the pain-relieving enkephalins. Acupuncture will raise the signal strength and the result is a sudden and dramatic relief from pain. For this reason, we can treat an incredibly wide variety of pain problems.

Treating Structural Pain

When a patient’s pain is caused by a structural problem, where tissue is pushing directly on a sensory nerve or group of nerves, raising the signal strength alone will not solve this type of problem.  These patients usually need more invasive procedures, such as surgery, and we can assist our patients in a referral to the proper Western medicine specialist.

Back Pain and Sciatica

Back pain

whether caused by chronic sciatica, a bulging disc, or arthritis is very painful and can be disabling. A person suffering from sciatica has an inflamed sciatic nerve. This nerve starts roughly at the base of the spine, travels down the back of the leg, and then stops in your foot. 

Sciatic pain

is difficult to treat because nerve pain does not respond well to painkillers. Acupuncture works by stimulating the nervous system and allowing the body to regain its natural balance and function.

Shoulder Pain

The shoulder is a ball and socket joint, attached together by ligaments and protected by cartilage. Tendons of the muscles that provide movement to this joint are tightly packed in this small space.  Shoulder pain is often difficult to treat because of the complexity of the shoulder joint. 

Frozen shoulder, or adhesive capsulitis, is a condition in which the swelling in the shoulder joint prevents the arm from moving in a full range of motion and can be very painful.  Often times an initial injury, like a tendon tear, will cause additional inflammation which in turn causes more swelling and pain in this joint. Acupuncture is very effective at reducing this secondary swelling and pain.  

From there, a shoulder may need time to resolve the initial tear, or in more severe cases surgery to correct the structural problem.  In this case, acupuncture can be a successful way to help keep pain at bay while you wait for a surgical procedure and to aid in post-surgical recovery.


Arthritis can be widespread or it can be concentrated in a knee, low back, or shoulder. Arthritic pain can be felt anywhere in the body where there is a joint. It is a very common health ailment for the general public and with early management, arthritis pain does not have to be disabling. 

Those that suffer from arthritis will likely find relief from acupuncture treatments because acupuncture treats the whole body and promotes overall wellness. Arthritis sufferers likely have arthritis in more than one place and analgesics only help for so long. You can live with arthritis for a long time without pain if you make changes in your lifestyle that include a whole-body approach to your well-being. 

Our treatments for arthritis involve a combination of pain relief, reduction of inflammation, dietary assessment, and emotional support.

Whole-Body Medical System

Chronic low-grade pain can lead to inactivity or lack of enjoyment in activities because the pain is just too much to deal with. 

People that suffer from chronic pain are more prone to depression because they are no longer able to do things they once enjoyed. They may suffer loneliness and feel that they are suffering alone.  As a whole-body medical system, this is the kind of condition Chinese Medicine treats with high success resulting in an overall reduction of pain and an increase in your mood and vitality.


Symptoms of runny nose, sneezing, and watery or itchy eyes, specifically during Spring and Fall, are common conditions for which many individuals seek acupuncture and Chinese Medicine treatment. Poor nutrition, stress, and/or exposure to harmful environments all lead to a declining immune system. We consider a successful outcome to be an 80% reduction in these symptoms.

Respiratory Diseases

Chronic Lung such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), emphysema, asthma, and chronic bronchitis are also conditions that can be treated with acupuncture. While these are case-by-case scenarios, each session begins with an accurate diagnosis to determine how we can best support you. In some cases, we feel the problem is beyond our ability to help, and in those cases, we refer to a trusted Western medical physician.

Restoring the Immune Function

Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs regulate your immune function by,

  • Increasing circulation into areas that require more immune presence.
  • Directly enhancing immune system components via herbal medicine. 
  • Resolving chronic states of dysfunction and thereby freeing up the immune system for other defense projects.

And now after 10 sessions with you, I am without pain and can walk, go up and down stairs (have a 2 story home and had to go one stair at a time) and I am back to most of my normal daily activities.

Dr. Yuliya and Mikhail are extremely gifted and talented and are very sensitive to your needs and concerns. Both are very professional and caring people and they are a blessing to their patients and our area.
