Acupuncture for Pain Relief and Control


Acupuncture is commonly used for a wide range of pain control  including  Muscular Skeletal conditions such as Back, neck, shoulders, knees, sciatica, arthritis, and well as migraines, period pains and IBS to name a few.

Acupuncture is said to help with  pain control by  providing  pain relief, reducing inflammation, improving muscle stiffness and improving joint mobility. These are some of the benefits listed on the  British Acupuncture Council web site where they also provide links and references to the research papers for you to examine. You can download their document for free and they also  explain the logic and clinical reasoning into how Acupuncture is said to work in  familiar western medical language.

Most of our enquiries are from people who have suffered pain for months if not years, they have a chronic condition. Constant pain can  make our lives miserable and at worst destroy them. The connection between pain and our  mental and emotional health is well known and it is difficult to break the circle but we believe  the holistic approach Acupuncture  takes is best  placed to address all of the  issues.
