Chronic Pain Relief

Would you like to get relief from Chronic Pain?

Are you looking for an alternative to Pain Killers, and a more natural solution?

Then Acupuncture is exactly what you are looking for. Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine is shown to greatly reduce Chronic Pain issues such as Low Back Pain, Fibromyalgia, Migraine, Sciatica, Joint Pain,  Neck and Shoulder Pain and more.

Chronic Pain can be very debilitating. It can impact greatly on what a person can do on a daily basis and therefore on their freedom and enjoyment of life. By reducing your level of pain , you will be able to do more of the things that you want to do eg. go for regular walks, exercise classes, sleep better. Pain can make us frustrated, irritable and even depressed. By reducing your level of pain your mood will greatly improve also.

When treating pain I use a variety of different techniques in order to maximise results. As well as Acupuncture I also often use Moxibustion, a powerful form of Heat Therapy.  Moxibustion relaxes the muscles and tendons , while invigorating the flow of blood in the affected area. If there is weakness in the area , Moxibustion also helps to strengthen the area.

I also  frequently use cupping in my treatments. Cupping is excellent for relaxing muscles and tendons . Cupping pulls blood to a region to stimulate healing. It is effective at stretching tight fascia and muscles. Cupping helps the tissue develop new blood flow and causes anti-inflammatory chemicals in the body. Cupping is generally painless and many say is more effective than massage for muscle problems.

I also use Gua Sha in my treatments when suitable. Gua Sha is the practise of using a Gua Sha tool to scrape the area of pain. This stimulates microcirculation of soft tissue , which increases blood flow to the area. It also breaks up stagnant energy and blood which results in the reduction of inflammation and the promotion of healing.

By using a combination of these different modalities a vast reduction in your level of pain can be achieved.

Many sports people are becoming aware of how effective Chinese Medicine can be for their sports injuries and overall performance, eg Michael Phelps (Olympic Swimmer) Alexander Naddour (Olympic Gymnast)
