By means of a combination of acupuncture, massage and lifestyle advice, Ian is skilled in treating a wide-variety of pain conditions. Using holistic and natural therapies in pain relief is beneficial and the aim is to reduce and eventually eliminate the use of painkillers. Many painkillers have adverse side-effects and potentially there is risk in long term use of damaging the digestive system. Drug treatment also often involves strong anti-inflammatory medication, requiring increasingly higher dosages over time with diminishing relief. Often the drugs are masking an underlying problem.
With acupuncture the root-cause of the pain is addressed. Treatments are tailored to each individual and I also look in-depth at the various causes with a view to creating effective strategies towards healing and pain-free living. Guidance and support is given throughout a course of treatment. The aim of this approach is to not just eliminate the pain, but to understand how and why the pain developed in the first place and, if necessary, help re-pattern the body and lifestyle so there will be no recurrence of symptoms and you can live pain-free, healthy and happy.
Acupuncture can help with such painful conditions as:
- Headaches, Migraine, Sciatica, Tennis Elbow, Arthritis, Neck & Shoulder problems,
Back ache and other Musculoskeletal aches and pains
Currently, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommends considering acupuncture as a treatment option for chronic lower back pain, chronic tension-type headaches and migraines. NICE makes these recommendations on the basis of scientific evidence.
Acupuncture is more effective than drugs in relieving the misery of migraine, says a study. Experts who administered the needles treatment to women suffering from the debilitating condition found they had fewer attacks and needed less painkilling medication.
