Chronic Pain Stops Here

At Cloud 9 Acupuncture & Integrative Medicine, we’ve mastered the art of treating chronic pain. “I’m finally starting to feel better, thanks to you!” is our favorite thing to hear every day at the clinic.

Most of our patients come to us as a last resort, after trying countless surgeries, medications, and procedures without any relief they finally come to us to feel better. Boasting over a 90% success rate in treating conditions such as Fibromyalgia, Neuropathy, Lupus, Lyme’s disease, Arthritis, and other chronic, complicated conditions, it’s no wonder patients are starting to recommend their family and friends to this “alternative option.” For some patients, we are their only option left.

With the addition of advanced therapies such as ATP Resonance BioTherapy TM and Ozone Regenerative Therapy TM our patients are feeling better than ever.

Our patients are seeing long-lasting results after just a few weeks with these advanced therapies.  Need proof? Read over 95 five star reviews on Google at https://g.page/r/CQGy9oVQIk1FEAE

Making Your Golden Years More Golden with Less Pain

Many of our patients have been told by their doctors they are “just getting old” and they will “just have to live with the pain” or take medications that have a lot of side effects, and usually stop working as well after a while. Hopeless and fighting pain on a daily basis, losing sleep because they are awoken by pain nightly, our patients finally find Cloud 9 Acupuncture & Integrative Medicine as their pain relief solution.
Using cutting edge technology as one of only 3 clinics in the DMV region to offer Ozone therapy and ATP Resonance BioTherapy, specialized electroacupuncture programs specific to a patient’s challenging condition like Neuropathy, Fibromyalgia, or Infertility, our clinical success is unparalleled with over an 85% success rate with these conditions. Results begin in a matter of just a few short weeks.
Ozone is also known as “Activated Oxygen” or O3. Instead of using well-known oxygen aka O2, ozone fully oxygenates any cell or tissue it comes in contact with. Ozone also kills viruses, bacteria, mold, fungus it comes in contact with. Clinically, we use ozone to fully oxygenate cells in conditions that are caused by perceived natural physical decline associated with aging, like Arthritis or Neuropathy. We also see many benefits to using ozone with autoimmune conditions, like Fibromyalgia, Epstein Barr Virus, and Long Haul Covid.

Neuropathy… Did You Know?

Neuropathy plagues approximately 20 million people in the United States. This particular type of nerve damage can have a multitude of medical causes.

  1. Diabetes
  2. Chemotherapy (or Radiation) Induced Peripheral Neuropathy also known as CIPN
  3. Nerve damage, especially originating from spinal compression, bulging disc, or pinched nerve.
  4. Viral Induced (including COVID-19)
  5. Unknown

Symptoms usually include tingling, numbness that can be quite painful, feeling of walking on “pins and needles,” unable to properly feel one’s feet or hands. After the pain of numbness and sharp, hot pain fades the feet or hands become truly numb, which is a progressive degeneration of the condition. This is a sign that the peripheral nerves have actually died and started to recede, which presents as true numbness creeping upwards, for example from the feet up the legs to even the groin. Or from the hands towards the shoulder. The exact level of severity of the Neuropathy condition is assessed by a neurological exam called the Toronto Exam.

Unfortunately, there is not much doctors can offer to treat neuropathy… Until now.

Now there is Hope.

At Cloud 9 Acupuncture, we have over a 85% success rate in significantly improving neuropathy cases. Without meds, without side effects, we use acupuncture combined with cutting edge technology to create a reversal of neuropathy. To get started, call for a consultation to find out if you are a candidate for our Neuropathy Program.

Our Life Changing Neuropathy Program

It started out as a normal outing.

Irreversible is not a word you want to hear from your Doctor but it’s a common one if you’ve been diagnosed with Chemotherapy Induced Peripheral Neuropathy or CIPN.

Elliot S. of Towson survived testicular cancer only to be living life in constant pain. He felt as though he were walking on pins and needles, becoming weaker and weaker by the day. “I was beginning to be worried that one day I would be wheelchair-bound.”

Nearly half of patients who undergo chemotherapy will develop Chemotherapy-Induced Peripheral Neuropathy or CIPN.

Chemotherapy meds travel throughout the body and attack cancer cells, sadly they can also cause severe damage to healthy nerves. CIPN can begin within weeks of starting treatment and can worsen as treatment continues. A high number of really unfortunate people will be forced to endure the symptoms associated with CIPN for months or even years after they’ve completed chemo.

When asked how CIPN was affecting his quality of life, he responded, “It was difficult to even walk up and down stairs and do other things we usually take for granted.”

The most common symptoms include:

  • pain, tingling, burning, weakness, or numbness in arms, hands, legs or feet
  • sudden, sharp, stabbing or shocking pain sensations
  • loss of touch sensation
  • clumsiness and trouble using hands to pick up objects or fasten clothing
  • loss of balance or falling

For some, their nerves will recover over time. For most, the nerve damage is ‘irreversible. ‘ Elliot had been told just that by a series of Doctors and specialists. Essentially they could cure his cancer but couldn’t fix the damage done by the drugs used to cure his cancer.

Then Elliot made a call to Acupuncturist Laura Parks of Cloud 9 Acupuncture right here in Timonium, MD. Acupuncturist Laura Parks is using time-tested science of Acupuncture and technology originally developed by NASA that assists in increasing blood flow and expediting recovery and healing to treat this debilitating disease.

After a series of treatments, Elliot was taking stairs with stride! “We have a house and it has stairs. This morning I walked right down the stairs and got into the car,” Elliot shared.

“I remember thinking ‘that’s become mighty easy for me,’ I didn’t have to hold on to the handrail or anything!

It’s life changing to have this mobility back!

Again and again, we meet with patients who were once diagnosed as “untreatable” or “incurable” but after receiving Laura Parks’ treatments are now living lives free from pain and suffering. For over 11 years she has been reversing the effects of CIPN and other varieties of Peripheral Neuropathy, including that caused by diabetes without invasive surgeries and medications that come with uncomfortable side effects.

If you’ve recently beat cancer only to find that you’re living a life in constant pain and discomfort or you’re struggling with the same symptoms as a result of either Idiopathic Neuropathy or Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy, Acupuncturist Laura Parks and the incredible team at Cloud 9 can help!

 

Acupuncture & Neuropathy

Did you know?…. Acupuncture is a stellar treatment option for reversing neuropathy. At our clinic, we’re proud to report we have over a 85% success rate in regaining sensation in hands or feet affected by peripheral neuropathy, chemotherapy induced neuropathy, and small fiber neuropathy. 

 

 

Neuropathy affects millions of Americans, usually those who are over the age of 65. Lately, our clinic has seen many patients who are far younger than expected suffering from neuropathy after suffering from the COVID-19 virus. A few patients have also reported neuropathy after receiving the COVID vaccine.  Regardless of the cause of neuropathy, our clinic still shows clinically documented success in regaining the health of the nerves and healthy sensation, eliminating the burning, numb, pins and needles or painful sensations that frequent neuropathy. 

 

 

We utilize The Toronto Exam to establish a baseline prior to beginning the Neuropathy Program. The Toronto Exam uses 3 sensations: heat, ice, and a pinwheel to measure the loss of nerve sensation in the hands and feet compared to the side of the face. As the patient continues care, we re-assess using The Toronto Exam to measure our progress at regular intervals of treatment.
