Discover the Healing Power of Acupuncture at TMJ & Sleep Therapy Center of Cleveland

Welcome to the TMJ & Sleep Therapy Center of Cleveland, where we are dedicated to providing comprehensive dental and TMJ services to help you achieve optimal oral health and overall well-being. As part of our holistic approach, we offer acupuncture as an effective and natural method for pain relief in the realm of dental and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders.

Acupuncture is an ancient practice rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine that involves the insertion of thin needles into specific points on the body. When it comes to dental and TMJ services, acupuncture can be a valuable adjunct therapy to alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, and promote healing. By stimulating specific acupuncture points, we can help restore balance to the body’s energy flow, known as Qi, which can become disrupted due to dental and TMJ issues.

This is the office and staff to go to, for TMJ and or just sleep difficulties. Not only is Dr. K’s knowledge of both areas stellar, but she strives to continually educate herself to provide support and answers for her patients. I so wish I had known about the root of my sleeping problems yrs ago, but I am so thankful I have been under her care now. So many issues have improved and I am grateful.
