Patients with back pain should receive acupuncture through the NHS, the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) has recommended in its latest guideline.

Back pain is among the most common reasons for visits to family doctors (after colds and flu). It affects one in three adults in the UK each year, with an estimated 2.5 million people seeking help from their GP. The NHS spends £1.5bn on treating the condition, and much of that is wasted on worthless treatments, according to Nice.  From among 200 treatments and devices claimed to help a bad back, the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (Nice) has passed judgement on what works and what doesn’t.

X-rays, ultrasound and steroid injections are out and osteopathy, chiropractic and “needling” are in, it says.

What is Tui Na?

 

Tui Na Therapeutic Massage is an integral part of Traditional Chinese Medicine.  Tui Na’s advantage over other forms of western massage is its ability to focus on  specific health concerns, especially chronic joint and muscle pain.  We have successfully treated patients who were suffering form arthritis, sciatica, muscle spasms, and back, neck and shoulder pain.  Tui Na does not only treat musculoskeletal disorders – it very effectively relieves tension in the body associated with stress, such as headaches (including migraines), insomnia and constipation.

What is Cupping?

Cupping is a technique in which glass cups are heated from the inside using a flame to create a vacuum when applied to afflicted areas of the body. The DSCF2608cup’s suction pulls at the skin drawing out toxins and stimulating blood flow. Cupping is particularly effective in reducing swellings and pain caused by congested blood or mucus as a result of muscle or soft tissue injuries or in respiratory disorders such as flu, bronchitis, asthma or allergies.

DSCF2611Acupuncture is the practice of inserting very fine sterile needles into the skin at certain anatomical points in the body to the relieve the symptoms of a wide variety of diseases.  Acupuncture points are thought to have electrical properties which effect the brain’s neuro-transmitters and encourage the body’s natural healing processes.  There are 365 commonly used points in the body and over  2,000 acupuncture points in total connected via pathways, or meridians.  These pathways create an energy flow (Qi, pronounced “chee”) through the body that is responsible for overall health.  Disruption of this energy flow can cause disease and acupuncture can correct these imbalances by improving the flow of Qi.

Acupuncture originated in China more than 2,500 years ago and is growing in popularity world-wide as a safe, effective and painless system of healing.
