Acupuncture is a gentle and holistic approach to address underlying issues causing pain.
Acupuncture is known for its success in treating pain. Pain is not a diagnosis but a warning of a problem in the human body. The intensity of the pain usually indicates the severity of the problem. Constant or increasing pain is a signal that something requires attention. It is important to address the underlying problem causing the pain, not just to cover up the body’s signal through drugs which form an unhealthy dependence.
Many western practitioners claim surgery as the only answer to permanently treating pain and injuries. My patients have come to me for acupuncture to treat their pain. They want an alternative to the risk associate with surgery and the expense. Many find that after only a few treatments, the pain significantly decreases, and in other instances, completely goes away.
This course of treatment is variable but usually takes 3 to 6 treatments, depending on severity of injury/pain problem. Acute pain (less than 3 months) is often resolved in a short series of treatments spaced close together while chronic pain requires consistent regular treatment to achieve long-term pain relief.
I use the thinnest acupuncture needles which, combined with my special acupuncture technique, gives the most gentle treatment possible. Many initially nervous patients don’t realise when these needles have been inserted and are very satisfied about the pain-free and relaxing treatment.
Pain can be debilitating and if you are suffering with pain right now, then please make an appointment with me for a consultation.
