Ever feel stiff or pain on your neck, shoulder, mid- back, or low back from sitting too long in your office chair? Even after receiving treatments such massage, chiropractic, physical therapy, and acupuncture, does the same pain still persist in these areas without getting any relief? This is typically caused by an improper sitting posture where your neck and shoulders are slouched forward for a long, extended period of time. The discouraging reality is that this ‘new office’ body has become the norm due to our reliance on technology such as the computer, tablets, and smart phones. This is commonly seen not only amongst working professionals but in young children as well.
Having the upper portion of the body jutted forward can lead to many physical ailments that cause unnecessary stresses on the joints of the neck, shoulder, chest, and the upper back. The reason for this is due to the body not being naturally aligned, thus creating tension and stress to the surrounding muscles. When this occurs, the muscles become stiff and inflexible often responding as pain to the affected areas.
Other than pain, certain debilitating symptoms such as eye strains, headaches, migraines, nausea, respiratory problems, and many more can manifest itself due to having the ‘office posture’. The human eye is considered one of the most important sensory organs on the head and when the body is aligned properly, the eye’s horizon sight is normal. However when the ‘office posture’ occurs with the head being forward and lowered, the eye muscles have to constantly look upwards, which is not its natural movement. Because of this strain and over-work of the eye muscles, the symptoms mentioned above will occur often as a result of to ‘neural fatigue’.
Fast Relief Acupuncture specializes in treating people with ‘office posture’. By precisely selecting the proper muscles of the neck, shoulders, upper, and lower back, the goal is relax and strengthen the affected muscles. Once this is achieved, proper corrective care can begin by re-aligning the body to its natural state with the aid of acupuncture, EMT manual therapy, and balance taping.

My Name is John Kim
I have been a licensed acupuncturist since 2000. When I first started my acupuncture career, my primary goal as a practitioner was to help people anguishing from living with pain everyday of their lives. I have seen on numerous occasions what chronic pain can do to a person physically but also seen how it can debilitate a person’s psyche as well.
Throughout the years, I have studied, developed and incorporated a very unique treatment protocol that has successfully treated and effectively reduced pain levels on chronic pain patients. I have combined traditional methods of acupuncture along with modern, research proven techniques to help reduce chronic pain symptoms in a safe, non- chemically addictive, and effective process.
