This content was provided by Dr. Connell "Richard A. Connell, DOM is a Doctor of Oriental Medicine and Licensed Acupuncturist who uses acupuncture to treat acute and chronic pain. He measures his success by achieving lasting results and making positive changes in peoples lives. His amazing pain relief success can be attributed to several factors. First his training and experience includes thousands of hours of specialized acupuncture techniques proven to eliminate pain. Many of his most effective and specialized pain relieving techniques he developed himself and are not available from any other practitioners.
Dr Connell also takes extra steps to ensure that the treatment itself doesn't contribute to any pain a patient may be experiencing. He uses extremely thin acupuncture needles, even by acupuncture standards, thus making his acupuncture treatments virtually painless. In many instances, pain relief can be immediate and patients have even reported a euphoric sensation during the acupuncture treatments."
