This is the most common main complaint I see in the clinic. Some people come in with acute sciatica, others long term back pain. I may use acupuncture, cupping electro-acupuncture, moxabustion and guasha to help.
I treat men and women who have neck pain. I also see menopausal women going through difficult health changes.
Children from infants on to teens respond particularly to acupuncture treatment. I've trained in massage techniques for under 5's and use gentle techniques in all ages.
In Chinese medicine we traditionally treat 3 levels of a person, translated roughly as your constitutional strength, your energy and emotions.
When you get acupuncture, a side effect of treating any complaint can be a sense of drowsiness and complete relaxation. The National Institute of Clinical Excellence recommends acupuncture for migraines and tension headaches. It's safe for children and adults.
Acupuncture is clinically effective in reducing nausea such as in pregnancy, and chemotherapy induced.
My Chinese professor in Tokyo, Dr Sai, said to me he thought "acupuncture helps you to stay a little younger".
