Do you suffer with Pain?

Do you put up with ongoing illness?

Are you stressed?

Do you want to be healthier and happier?

Traditional Chinese Acupuncture and techniques such as tuina massage, cupping and guasha are excellent treatment methods to reduce pain, improve mobility, help with symptoms of ongoing illness and reduce stress. These are just some of the things that traditional acupuncture can help with.

Neck pain is very common and can be as a result of many causes. Weaker neck muscles due to ageing or overuse can ache. Tight neck muscles can also be due to overuse or strain and can feel painful. Poor back posture is a very common cause of pain and is so often a result of working at a desk with a screen or phone. There are also structural changes in the bones, intervertebral discs and joints of the neck, which can lead to neck discomfort, such as osteoarthritis, spondylosis, spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, herniated disc and pinched nerve. Other causes can be due to a whiplash injury or more rarely from an infection. Stress is also a definite cause for many people and the discomfort can come on quite clearly with a stressful situation or will build up gradually if the stress goes on long term. Poor lifestyle choices such as diet and exercise can be contributing factors.

Traditional acupuncture and its related techniques can quickly reduce neck pain and even get rid of it. At Jenny Anderson Acupuncture, a careful assessment is made of your condition to make sure it is safe to treat you. Acupuncture is always used as it is so effective and one or even two other techniques are used during the treatment session. After each treatment you should notice changes in your pain levels and especially if you employ the lifestyle advice offered, such as exercise, relaxation techniques, diet, posture and exercises.

Back pain, wether in the upper, middle or lower back also responds well to a course of traditional chinese acupuncture and combined techniques in the same way as for neck pain.

The over use of opioids to treat pain
There is a “crisis” in medical treatment of pain in the US and the UK could be following in their footsteps. Prescribing for pain is out of control. The Royal College of GP’s recently issued a statement saying that funding should be made available for therapies (like acupuncture) that people know work for them. They say how better access is needed for patients to be able to obtain alternative therapies in the community.

Functional MRI reveals acupuncture modulates brain activity.
82 studies were researched and support the specific effects of acupuncture. For example, one study proved that acupuncture points on the feet, used specifically to treat the eyes, highlighted the eye area of the brain whilst being scanned during acupuncture of these points.
