Experiencing acupuncture from several acupuncturists, I have found that Dr. Chapa’s methodology of incorporating techniques used by both eastern and modern medicine to be very effective in treating the chronic pain in my shoulder/back.  The therapy wasn’t limited to just acupuncture, but included a full consultation on herbal supplements/lifestyle modifications to bring balance to my body, and  ways to enhance the therapy being received.  Even after just one session with Dr. Chapa, full range of motion was restored to my shoulder without the pain that usually accompanied the motion.  I would highly recommend for anyone who doesn’t like taking pain medications chronically, as this is a great, non-invasive alternative to opioid therapy.
