Acupuncture is one of the oldest forms of healing, originating in China over 3000 years ago. By shallow insertion of small sterile needles, acupuncture controls the flow of blood and vital life energy in the body. Acupuncture treatment harnesses the body’s natural ability to restore health because it gently and naturally treats and removes the stress caused by imbalances or blockages that occur throughout life. Eventually symptoms, pain, and an early untimely death occurs. Once freed from obstruction, this life energy force can circulate effectively to adequate nourish cells, organs, glands, tissues, and muscles. This can help restore the body’s own ability to heal itself and restore optimal well-being. 

Vagus Nerve Activation

Using a tens device on the left ear, electrical current is sent directly to the vagus nerve to activate the brain’s ability to down-regulate the sympathetic nervous system.  This therapy improves the immune response and allows the brain, body, and gut to produce anti-inflammatory markers.  By resetting  the nervous system, a  decrease in pain and swelling occurs.  Over time, increase in brain clarity, better digestion, and movement is expected.

Auricular/Ear Acupuncture

All non-life-threatening health conditions can be successfully treated by ear acupuncture.  Research has shown that the number one reason to receive ear acupuncture is to DETOX from all legal and illegal drugs, including tobacco and alcohol. A set protocol developed for use in ADDICTION TREATMENT programs through the National Acupuncture Detox Association (NADA) is an effective way to help people facing enormous stress, anger, depression, fatigue, and other emotional and physical pain.  It has been used in thousands of programs around the world. Dr. DiPaolo is a NADA practitioner found in Acudetox.com

Scalp Acupuncture

In China, scalp acupuncture has helped people with horrific pain and rare difficult conditions when drugs, surgery, and physical therapy have failed. There are many people who are looking for answers to neurological disorders and unexplainable debilitating symptoms.  They found a solution with Scalp acupuncture. The major difference and advantage to scalp acupuncture is the profound direct effect on the brain and nervous system.  Patients also notice less pain due to shorter and thinner acupuncture needles, faster results, and more convenience as the patient can receive a treatment in any position, wearing comfortable clothes, and it does not interfere with daily activities.

Applied Kinesiology (A.K.)

A.K. is an advanced form of diagnosis and treatment using muscle testing as a non-invasive, accurate, and dynamic biofeedback mechanism. A.K. is used to examine how an individual's body functions in life. After identifying weak or non-functioning muscles, Dr. DiPaolo will apply the precise therapy to correct the problem and help restore proper muscle balance, posture, and movement throughout the entire body.

Dry Needling

Dry Needling is an innovative, minimally invasive therapy that uses monofilament needles to deactivate the trigger points that hold muscle fibers in unwanted tension. Freed from these uncomfortable knots, muscles and nerves are able to resume normal function, thus restoring movement and eliminating pain. Dry Needling is an effective treatment for acute and chronic pain and can treat a wide variety of conditions such as myofascial trigger points, back and neck pain, sciatica, shoulder pain and much more. 

Kinesio Taping

After treatment, Dr. DiPaolo will often apply kinesio tape over muscles to reduce pain and inflammation, relax sore muscles, and support muscles in movement on a 24 hour/day basis. Kinesio taping is designed to gently create forces on the surface of the skin which elevates the tissue and relieves the pressure of the structures beneath the area taped. Many people with chronic muscle and joint pain successfully respond to kinesio taping when all other medical treatments have failed. The difference is that kinesio tape allows patients to maximize strength, support joint stability, and optimize function during daily activities without losing valuable time due to pain caused by repetitive motion that will, over time, end in accumulative trauma disorders, permanent disabilities, and loss of jobs.

Therapeutic Nutrition

This technique begins with a comprehensive health questionnaire to evaluate metabolic and nutritional status including, if needed, further assessment by means of laboratory testing to determine foods and/or nutritional factors that may be excessive, insufficient or creating sensitivities. Dr. DiPaolo works with patients to determine the appropriate types of quality, earth-made foods and condiments/herbs that are specific to each patient's unique, biochemical needs. Most Americans live a lifestyle that is high in stress and eat foods that are low in nutritional value. Dr. DiPaolo may recommend concentrated food supplements to ensure the body gets sufficient raw essential fatty acids, enzymes, amino acids, and trace minerals to fortify, repair, and heal.

Cranial Sacral Therapy

This gentle, hands-on therapy works with the craniosacral system which develops, pumps, and circulates the cerebral spinal fluid in a precise rhythm. Dr. DiPaolo will correct restricted joint motion of the bones associated with the skull, pelvis, and the surrounding soft tissue. Any imbalance, interruption, or dysfunction in this closed system will affect the flow of the cerebrospinal fluid that bathes
and feeds the brain and spinal cord, resulting in possible sensory, motor, or neurological disabilities.

Manual Manipulation

This treatment method involves safe, effective adjustments/corrections of the spine, hips, shoulders, arms, and legs. Misalignment or fixation of these bones and joints alter nerve function and affect body posture. Using non-force manual manipulation, Dr. DiPaolo removes these distortions and allows proper nerve flow to muscles and organs, improving communication throughout the nervous system, thus restoring the body’s ability to heal itself.
