A new acupuncturist, Justin Stiffler, has been added to the team at Carolina Beach Community Acupuncture. He has been practicing acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine for more than seven years. Stiffler is passionate about spreading the knowledge of acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine to people of all walks of life which lead him to spend several years traveling the world lecturing and treating patients from all corners of the globe. Acupuncture is perhaps most known for its success in the treatment of pain. They specialize in treating sports injuries, migraines and headaches, sciatica, neck pain and low back pain, and elbow/wrist and hand pain, leg/knee and foot pain. The practitioners have extra training in the area of acupuncture orthopedics treating most orthopedic or pain conditions and neurological conditions.
Sports acupuncture helps athletes achieve better performance, prevents injury and supports a quicker recovery from injury. Some medical conditions treated with acupuncture are tendonitis, bursitis, tennis elbow, pitcher’s shoulder and shin splints to name a few.
Other services available at Carolina Beach Community Acupuncture are cupping which is a method of creating a vacuum on the patient's skin to dispel stagnation— stagnant blood and lymph, thereby improving qi flow — to treat respiratory diseases such as the common cold, pneumonia and bronchitis. Cupping also is used on back, neck, shoulder and other musculoskeletal conditions. Chinese herbal medicine is one of the primary modalities within the scope of Oriental medicine. Chinese herbology includes treatment with substances such as plants, roots, minerals and more. Like acupuncture, Chinese herbology has evolved as an integral part of Chinese medicine and is used to re-harmonize imbalances in the body. They offer prescription herbal formulas for many ailments including problems during pregnancy and with children when many modern pharmaceuticals are contraindicated or dangerous. Chinese herbal formulas are used to replace medications with harmful side effects including medicines for blood pressure, cholesterol, insomnia, menopause, headaches, colds, flus, digestive disorders, nodules, gynecological disorders and others. They care about your children just as much as you do. The clinic takes great pride in their children’s line of pediatric herbal formulas to treat all conditions from ADHD to the common cold and runny nose.  Let Chinese Medicine be your first line of defense. You will likely get rid of the problem before you need to take any other steps. The fee structure has changed, new patient acupuncture appointment is $45 to $75 sliding scale and return patient acupuncture treatment is $20 to $50 sliding scale, you decide what you can afford. The purpose of the sliding scale is to separate the issues of money and treatment; they want you to come in often enough to really get better and stay better. They understand that everyone’s situation is different, and their primary goal is to make acupuncture available to you as often as you need it.
Also, they are offering a new line of all natural prescription strength topical herbal liniments and poultices for muscle sprains, strains and workout recover.  We also carry a line of herbs for healing to acute injury and broken bones.
