We are offering $10 acupuncture treatments for seniors age 62 and above every Thursday morning in March 2014 from 8:30 am – 1:00 pm.  Seniors can call (860) 683-0011 to schedule their $10 appointments.

Many seniors are challenged by issues with chronic pain.  In 2012, the Journal of the American Medical Association reviewed the effectiveness of acupuncture for chronic pain conditions including back and neck pain, osteoarthritis, and shoulder pain. The research team, which included MDs and PhDs, reviewed 29 randomized controlled trials, with a total of 17,922 patients analyzed. They concluded that acupuncture is an effective treatment for chronic pain.

In addition to pain, seniors are also likely to face issues with difficulty sleeping, poor digestion, asthma and breathing problems.  Many Rivers’ highly-trained acupuncturists not only treat chronic pain but also insomnia, IBS, constipation, asthma, and allergies.  Schedule your $10 treatment today!

According to Chinese tradition, 2014 is “The Year of the Horse.”  The Horse is admired for being a quick and elegant animal, useful for transporting people to new places and new experiences.  Trying acupuncture for the first time at Many Rivers is a perfect way to usher in the Year of the Horse.

Has shoveling snow caused you back pain or shoulder pain?  Is your arthritis acting up because of all of the weather changes this winter?   Acupuncture can be effective for all types of pain, including arthritis pain, herniated disc pain, and frozen shoulder pain.

Or maybe you want to kick-start your New Year’s resolution to lose weight?  Acupuncture can be helpful for curbing sugar and fat cravings.  Acupuncture is also incredibly relaxing and it helps our bodies deal with stress in a positive way.
