If you’re suffering from lots of different health issues then you’ll find acupuncture is a versatile treatment to relieve pain, improve mobility and increase energy.
Some patients see me for a specific health problem, but others present with a whole host of them. It’s very common that people seek the help of an acupuncturist and Tuina therapist because their symptoms appear to be disparate: anxiety alongside IBS, migraine and shoulder pain, persistent cough and a sore back, or if you’re a gym bunny, then perhaps multiple injuries.
I love acupuncture for its versatility. There are few conditions that I can’t do something that will help. Add Tuina remedial massage, fire cupping, guasha and energy healing then I literally have an eclectic toolbox to draw upon.
Because many people continue treatment to maintain their health, it means we can pick up on anything that comes up and manage it before it becomes chronic.
Helen first came to me with achilles problems and as an avid gym goer and runner, she would regularly present with a variety of injuries.
Read Helen’s story:
I initially went to Rita for treatment of my Achilles pain (which I’d had for a couple of months) and also long term persistent pain in my right shoulder and neck. I do a lot of exercise so over time Rita has also treated my knee, hip/piriformis, lower back and hayfever!
My achilles was painful every day and I was scared of exercising in case of further pain/damage. Rita’s acupuncture and massage treatment has significantly eased the pain and tightness and I’m now able to exercise however I like. I know that if it starts ‘twinging’again, another treatment will get me back on the right track.
I have suffered with neck and shoulder problems for nearly 30 years. Whilst I know that there are underlying skeletal issues that acupuncture can’t resolve, Rita’s treatments have been very beneficial for unlocking the tightness, easing my pain and keeping me moving!
The electroacupuncture treatment has been particular effective in treating my knees, hip/piriformis and when I have a flare up I know this will sort it out.
Whilst I haven’t had a full course of hayfever treatments, Rita treated me on and off during the season and it considerably eased my symptoms and I took far fewer hayfever meds as a result.
I have also brought my son (Will) multiple times for treatment of long-standing hayfever, which has been very effective. Not only is he now off all daily hayfever medication but the acupuncture seems to have also had a positive impact on his general demeanour and he seems more relaxed.
Rita is positive, bubbly and always happy to treat multiple issues with different techniques, which is great for me where I present every time with a range of conditions.
The treatment room is always clean and relaxing.
