Cucamonga Acupuncture & Wellness, led by clinical director and board certified sole practitioner Jasmine Casupanan, L.Ac, seamlessly blends the time-tested science of acupuncture with more innovative, medical solutions in order to achieve measurable, long-lasting results and give you a new lease on LIFE.
Whether it be the aching, shooting pain from carpal tunnel or the unbearable swelling and stiffness from arthritis, we treat pain at the root and thrive at treating many complex chronic pain conditions. If you or a loved one have suffered long enough, it may be time to look to acupuncture. Time and time again, our patients tell us how we've been able to resolve and manage their pain issues better than anything else they've tried. Time and time again, we are the LAST RESORT with the BEST RESULTS.
We specialize in treating chronic and acute pain conditions:
Ankle and Foot Pain
Hand and Wrist Pain
Shoulder Pain/Frozen Shoulder
Tennis Elbow and Golf Elbow
Facial Pain/Numbness/Bells Palsy
Cervical and Spinal Stenosis
Failed Back Surgery
Post Herpetic Neuralgia (Shingles)
Migraines & Headaches
We believe in the power of integrative medicine, personalized plans, and compassionate care to treat the root of the issue, rather than just masking the symptoms. Our goal is for our patients to get their life back, and not have to worry about how much worse it's going to get in the future. Using a refined combination of traditional acupuncture, electroacupuncture, and ATP Resonance BioTherapy© we are able not only to make the future brighter for our patients but also achieve powerful results at a more consistent rate than acupuncture alone.
Along with acupuncture, our clinic is the only clinic you will find within the Inland Empire that implements the use of ATP Resonance BioTherapy©. While acupuncture/electroacupuncture works to break up pain signals, ATP Resonance BioTherapy© is a unique and immensely powerful adjunct frequency specific micro-current therapy that increases the metabolic function of the different parts of the body at a cellular level. To put it simply, we're refining and updating the software that is your body. Just like you update your phone every once in awhile to run more efficiently, we are updating your cells!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
It used to be that the public thought acupuncture was nothing but a pseudo-science, a placebo. Well, millions of patients and hundreds of research studies into present day have since proven that idea wrong and demystified the mechanism of how acupuncture works.
Our customized treatment plans address two things: pain and nerve dysfunction.
Acupuncture points are activity centers -- when stimulated correctly they systematically flood the body not only with nourishment from increased blood circulation but also with powerful pain-relieving endorphins (aka HAPPY HORMONES) such as enkephalin's, beta-endorphins, dynorphins, and ACTH. At the same time, acupuncture begins a chain of reactions driving the vagal-adrenal axis to release catecholamines (norepinephrine, epinephrine, and dopamine) to curb and reduce inflammation for lasting effects. Many medications seek to mimic the effects of these neurotransmitters, but not without some nasty side effects.
As the body habituates strong painkiller use, in time it not only damages the pain receptors and builds up a tolerance so strong the only options left are prescribing stronger dosages or an even stronger prescription. What's more, the body basically forgets how to and becomes unable to release and form these neurotransmitters on its own. Acupuncture works by letting the body inform the brain, strengthening the connection between the two, and allowing it to do what it was meant to do for thousands of years.... heal.
If you don't remember anything else from freshman year biology, you probably remember that "the mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell"! Well, what seemed like pretty useless information at the time actually ties in so much about what we know about health today. Yes, the mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell as it's responsible for the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate) -- a critical supplier of energy. ATP IS ENERGY, it is a type of Qi, it's used by muscles to move, it's the fuel that drives all the physiological processes of the body. When our cells are damaged or our mitochondria is otherwise unable to produce ATP, we cannot have proper cell function, our bodies cannot metabolize food, absorb important nutrients, or dispose itself of toxins.
If the engine isn't working properly, no amount or quality of fuel (vitamins, supplements, medications) will get you very far.
Our customized acupuncture protocols along with ATP Resonance BioTherapy© increases ATP production at 500x the normal rate, expedites protein synthesis, drives oxygenation and increases healthy blood flow. Altogether we are able to rehabilitate damaged nerves, neutralize systemic inflammation, and feel like your whole self again!
One of the advantages of our treatment program is the low risk of adverse side effects. Compared to pharmacological treatments, acupuncture is a safe and non-invasive option for individuals suffering from neuropathy.
All of our modalities are safe to use on patients who have surgically installed hardware like pins, plates, artificial joints, stents, pacemakers, pumps, and spinal cord stimulators. It can be used in conjunction with conventional medical treatments or as a standalone therapy, depending on the severity and underlying cause of the neuropathy. (Our practitioner of course will better assess risk and approach with caution on a case by case basis.)
