Dr. Chang helps patients live a healthy and pain-free life through these effective treatments:

  • Acupuncture: Through the strategic insertion of thin, sterile needles into designated points along the body, acupuncture is renowned for stimulating the body’s inherent healing response. This ancient practice not only alleviates symptoms of chronic pain but also is pivotal in re-establishing equilibrium within the body’s energy pathways.
  • Cupping: Cupping therapy serves as an effective remedy for pain and inflammation. The application of the cups can help to alleviate tension and relax tight muscles, which can help to restore calm to the mind and body. The increase of blood flow due to this therapy has been known to stimulate healing. 
  • Essential Oils: Essential oils are concentrated plant extracts used for their healing properties, obtained from parts like leaves, flowers, and roots, and known for their aromatic compounds with benefits to physical and emotional health. Riverpoint Wellness Group incorporates essential oils into treatment plans, both aromatically and topically, to enhance relaxation and the effects of acupuncture, with tailored guidance provided on their safe and effective use.
  • Moxibustion: Burning mugwort is a traditional Chinese therapy which helps to enhance immunity, stimulate better blood flow, as well as reduce pain and other symptoms.
  • Ear Seeds: This therapy is also known as Auricular Acupuncture, are a form of acupressure where small seeds are placed on specific points in the ear to stimulate various body areas and organs in order to promote healing and enhance the flow of energy throughout the body.
  • Infrared Heat: This therapy is often used alongside acupuncture to deepen the treatment’s impact by warming deeper tissues. The therapy utilizes TDP lamps, which emit a special electromagnetic spectrum of far-infrared waves and minerals, penetrating the body to aid in healing, detoxification, and oxygenation.
