Come see us for pain management the natural way at Capital City Acupuncture in Salem, Oregon

Pain shows up in many forms and for many different reasons and is usually the primary complaint that brings people into our clinic. 

Pain can be caused by injury to any musculoskeletal structure, bones, tendons, or ligaments or overuse injuries related to occupation or activity. Autoimmune issues can also be implicated in chronic pain conditions such as ankylosing spondylitis or rheumatoid arthritis. 

 Acupuncture treats pain by inserting acupuncture needle into anatomically significant areas like muscle tendon junctions, motor points, trigger points, along with traditional acupuncture points.  It stimulates our pain-relieving endorphins, causes the surrounding muscles and tendons to relax, decreases inflammation and increases circulation resulting in more blood flow and an increased healing time.

Initial Consult

During this consult it’s our goal to get to know you and understand your history and determine if we can help you and that you are a good candidate for our program. We will advise you on our best treatment recommendations.


Our assessment is designed to understand where your pain is coming from through orthopedic testing.


During your treatment we use traditional acupuncture points along with trigger points and motor points into the muscle tissue. This combination works best to achieve long term results. 

Electrical Acupuncture

The use of subsensory electrical stimulation to acupuncture points increases microcirculation, decreases inflammation and improves the rate at which you heal. 

Bioactive Microcurrent™

A technique for treating pain using a low-level electrical current.  The frequencies have a direct impact on our bodies and can almost instantaneously change the chemistry and pain signaling.  It has been clinically shown to reduce cytokine activity (pain mediator) and improve circulation.  If your body is running on an old program, this  is how we rewrite the program and reboot.
