Acupuncture is an ancient esoteric healing art which maps energy lines in the body linked to organs and functions. Along the energy lines there are key points which are said to help restore balance between energy channels and bring the body into equilibrium.
Scientifically what is known about acupuncture is that by inserting fine needles into localised areas of the body a chain of healing responses are triggered.
When a needle pierces the skin and muscle a minor inflammation is created. The immune system kicks into action to create a local healing response around the area. The nerve receptors in the tissues are intercepted, which cause muscle tissue to relax.
As the muscle relaxes, fresh, nutrient rich blood, floods the local site which creates a healing response in the local area as well as and triggering a systemic immune response through the whole body.
My acupuncture specialization is the treatment of neuralgia and myalgia, which means working primarily with nerve and muscle pain. I spent 6 months in mobile pain clinics in India for my clinic training.
Our clinic would see 250 patients a day 7 days a week. I feel I really refined the art of working with pain during that intense period. I also use electro acupuncture and cupping which accelerates muscle and nerve repair, and is especially useful for chronic conditions.
Acupuncture can effectively manage the following types of pain:
- Neck/Back Pain
- Shoulder Pain
- Tennis/Golfers Elbow
- Hip and Gluteal Pain
- Knee Pain
- Achilles Tendonitis/Tendonosis
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Muscular Strains/Ligament Sprains
- Chronic Pain
- Athletic Performance
- General Stress
I work in a holistic way, which means I will use a combination of techniques to achieve maximum benefit for you.
