‘Pain represents a symptom of dysfunction and disease and obstruction to the flow of life.’
Pain is something that afflicts all of us at one time or another. Its effects can range from mildly irritating and annoying to downright debilitating and depressing. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine view pain as a blockage of some sort arising from many causes such as trauma and injury, poor health, hormonal imbalance, disease and emotional and psychological imbalance to name a few.
Whatever the cause, the results are the same. Blockage. An obstruction that results in a lack of flow of the vital energy and blood circulation that can not only cause pain in the local body part but also further away and, over the course of time, that can lead to disease and dysfunction in other parts of the body. Think of a dam and resulting effects to the rivers, estuaries and streams that it restricts the water supply to. What happens to the flora and fauna as a result? And so it is with pain and why we should pay attention to fixing pain and re-establishing the body’s own ‘flow.’
In addition to conventional western medical diagnosis and treatment, the symptoms of the following conditions may possibly benefit from supportive Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine treatment:
- Headaches / migraines
- Back and neck pain
- Frozen shoulder
- Plantar fasciitis and heel spurs
- Sports injury / trauma
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
Ease your pain and get on with the life you want to be living.
