At Aspen Acupuncture Clinic in Cumberland we specialize in non-narcotic practices in healing pain such as headaches, chronic pain, joint pain, back pain, and neuropathy, in doing so, we use tiny, disposable, sterile needles that are placed gently into specific acupuncture points that correspond with your complaints or disease. It is not all about physical pain, mental pain is real too! Acupuncture is often used for stress, depression, anxiety, mental clarity, and focus.
Our goal is to apply an ancient modality into a modern world. Acupuncture is not only for pain- It helps with depression, anxiety and stress as well.
We would like to also mention shingles, this is a combination of anxiety and stress mixed with a virus that turns to nerve pain, If you have shingles please go to an acupuncturist as soon as you feel a burn or get a blister, do not stay in pain.

Rather than applying pressure to the muscles, cupping works by a vacuum effect and negative pressure on the muscles which can loosen muscles, encourage blood flow, and sedate the nervous system.
Cupping relieves back and neck pains, stiff muscles, anxiety, fatigue, migraine, rheumatism and encourage healing.
It is effective at stretching tight fascia and helps the tissue develop new blood flow and causes
anti-inflammatory chemical reactions in the body.
Herbs were commonly used before western pharmaceuticals were introduced. Treating and preventing medical conditions with herbs is naturally safe, as an overdose would cause irritation or nausea instead of landing in the emergency room.
Aspen Acupuncture Clinic's future goal is to have a Chinese herbal pharmacy with a mixture of raw, granular, and capsule herbs.
While we can order Herbs as needed, we intend to have the pharmacy open when the addition is up and running.
We do have some cold and flu formulas on hand.
With our current situation of daily mask wearing, we thought, we need more oxygen! Our intent is to give our patients an unforgettable experience with our very own purified oxygen delivery system. Individual scents/flavors may be infused to enhance the experience. Some people report that Oxygen therapy has helped to increase energy, improve mood, improve concentration, improve sports performance, reduce stress, provide relief for headaches, migraines, hangovers and promote better sleep.
Oxygen Bar Therapy may be a stand alone or you can add it to other services. It requires 30 minutes to acquire the most benefit.
Some contraindications apply, such as: respiratory, vascular, or chronic medical cinditions.

Your first visit can take from 60-90 minutes and it will entail a thorough intake regarding your whole body along with your reason for coming in. You will also receive your first acupuncture treatment as well.
Your follow up appointment can take from 45-60 minutes. For best results with acupuncture, two treatments per a week for one or two weeks and then once a week for a couple more weeks, is what really gives the acupuncture a chance to work. Your results will depend on your bodies ability to balance its self. After this treatment plan, we, together decide on future appointment.
