Guiding Needle Acupuncture has the following mission: “To elevate the consciousness, robust health and vitality of humanity.”


Tendons are fibrous cordlike tissue structures connecting muscles to bones in joint locations. The tendons empower one to utilize one’s will to direct the exertion of muscular strength. When muscles contract, the tendons transmit the force of muscle contraction through the skeletal system. Tendons allow human movement and biomechanical stabilization.

Repetitive activity, overexertion, overuse of joints, and physical trauma often leads to tearing within a tendon resulting in inflammation, pain, swelling and weakness. This tearing is called tendonitis. A tendon tear of greater severity is referred to as a tendon rupture, which may require surgery for proper rehabilitation. Inflammation of the sheath that surrounding tendons called tenosynovitis often occurs simultaneously with tendonitis, which aggravates the duration of recovery time and severity of the discomfort.

Tendonitis usually takes a longer duration of time to recover than muscle strain since tendons receive less blood circulation than muscles. When blood circulation is improved with complimenting therapies such as acupuncture, and fire cupping, the transfer of nutrients and oxygen to the injured tendon is optimized and healing time is reduced, the muscles are relaxed and the blood flow is enhanced.

Acupuncture initiates a healing response by sending signals through the peripheral and central nervous system. Enhancing the release of the body’s own biochemical molecules to reduce inflammation, dilate blood vessels, improve circulation of oxygen, vital energy and nutrient filled blood into the injured area.

Eating nutritious foods with natural anti-inflammatory properties such as: shiitake mushroom, kombu (kelp), green tea, papaya, blueberry, broccoli, sweet potato, extra virgin olive oil and others can also improve blood circulation and recovery.
