What We Treat

Pain Management

Pain Management

Human body has ability to produce natural pain relief known as endogenous (grown within the body) opioids. Our nervous system produces endogenous opioids in response to pain and stress. Endorphin is an example of endogenous opioid. Acupuncture is known to stimulate the nervous system to promote the production of endogenous opioids and relieve pain naturally, so you do not have to rely on dangerous synthetic opioid pain medicine like morphine or fentanyl.

Immune Disorders

Immune system is our body’s natural defense against outside invaders. It is vital in maintaining healthy body and life. When immune system is weak, our body becomes vulnerable to recurrent illnesses like chronic colds. When immune system is overactive, our body becomes sensitive to substances that are generally harmless to others. Allergic reaction is an example of overactive immune system. When our own immune system turns against us and attacks us, it becomes what is known as autoimmune diseases. Acupuncture and herbal medicine can help your immune system maintain healthy balance.


Digestive Disorders

Location, location, location! Have you wondered why our stomach occupies the prime real estate in the body, right at the center surrounded by other vital organs? In oriental medicine, stomach is compared to the earth. Just as the earth provides life to everything around it, our body receives life and nourishment through stomach. Healthy digestion is essential for healthy body, mind, and immune system. However, in modern days it is often impaired by improper diet, stress, toxins from outside world, and overuse of pharmaceutical drugs.

Other Complex Illnesses

Modern day illnesses are so complex and often difficult to pinpoint. Many people have experience where they have been to many different specialists and undergone many different tests, and response and explanation of illness were not as clear as they hoped. Or many times people may have told the cause is “idiopathic” meaning the cause is unknown. However, it does not mean their illnesses cannot be helped. At Tru, we help people that have been told to “learn to live” with the illness.
