all about pain

Chronic pain is a drain on your life and your emotional resources. If you are suffering and tired of dealing with it alone, you may need support. At knotted root, we know all about pain. How it feels, how it can take over your life. And how to make you feel better.

R.M practices classical Chinese mirror technique to shift the sensation of pain from different parts of your body, paired with a Western orthopedic approach that looks at the body’s muscles, connective tissue, and boney structures to analyze a more complete picture.

He often combines Yamamoto New Scalp Acupuncture (YNSA) which treats corresponding areas of the body through the scalp and auricular therapy which treats corresponding areas of the body through the ear.

He integrates acupuncture with tuina, a type of Chinese orthopedic bodywork that focuses on the connective tissue, muscles, and joints. Read more about tuina and other asian bodywork therapies.
