I Can't Live Like This


Pain or trauma 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 it. How it feels, how it can take over your life. And how to make you feel better.

Knotted Root is meant to symbolize the deep-seated constriction caused by trauma, grief, pain, disease, etc.  It is the greatest goal of Knotted Root to help, in partnership with the patient, untangle these knots and to do so with genuine kindness and respect.


Knotted root specializes in orthopedic acupuncture, for conditions of the muscles, sinews, and joints, and toning down heightened CNS response article.


Chinese herbs can treat almost anything but we specialize in rebuilding people’s constitutional strength and calming down CNS response.
