ISTOP Acupuncture

ISTOP Acupuncture Treatment for Pain

ISTOP: Institute for the Study and Treatment of Pain

I believe the ISTOP Methods can be extremely beneficial for all kinds of spinal pain patients. I had to leave my Home State to find a practioner. And I was only able to receive one treatment (Which is simply not enough). But I am convinced by the process of the treatment, that this modality holds incredible potential in pain relief. I wish I could afford to move and get regular treatments. I have had traditional accupuncture administered by a Chinese Doctor (Born in China, and with MD Credentials as an Orthopedic Surgeon in China) with over 20 years Acupuncture experience, and it was simply not the same.

ISTOP is different, the needles are placed deeper. And there is a slight amount of pain upon insertion as you would expect, but no more so than traditional Acupuncture.

If you have any pain related to musculoskeletal issues and have the opportunity to undergo this treatment I would highly recommend you give it a chance.
