An old rugby injury (dating back four years) brought a patient in to my treatment room this week. Cupping was used to draw out any waste products, increase blood supply to the local area and promote healing. This was followed by acupuncture to reduce pain and inflammation whilst improving muscle stiffness and joint mobility.
It’s been a busy few weeks treating new patients at Essence Acupuncture. I’ve welcomed patients for acupuncture and massage, but also introduced and converted a few to the ancient Chinese therapy of cupping!
It’s fair to say I am enjoying putting into practice what I spent the last 3 years training to do. Later this month is graduation day!?? To celebrate, I have decided to extend my opening offer throughout October.
Please feel free to spread the word or send me a message if you would like to book an appointment!
Electroacupuncture performed on a patient today who is struggling with knee pain after a cycling accident a few months ago. The scar (resulting from the trauma) was also tested for blockages to healing and needled appropriately.
Trials have demonstrated significantly better pregnancy rates for acupuncture than medication! The British Acupuncture Council believes acupuncture may boost female fertility by doing these key things:
Regulating hormone function
Increasing blood flow to the ovaries and uterus and helping to relax your muscles which can improve the chance of an embryo implanting
Tackling the causes of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) – a common cause of infertility
Generally helping to relieve stress and make you feel more relaxed
A weekend of sport has resulted in tight hamstrings and IT band for this patient. Massage and cupping were used to help loosen tightness and encourage blood flow to the affected area to aid recovery. Great for sportspeople (the numbers are from netball trials yesterday).
As someone who suffered migraines in the first trimester of both my pregnancies, I know first hand how debilitating they can be. Please don’t accept them as part of life and lose your time locked in a dark room. Attached is a lovely article explaining how acupuncture can help.
