Christina had multiple health conditions, but had been suffering from epilepsy and migraines all her life. She would experience an aura, feel detached, become sensitive to light, and this would prompt a migraine.
Like many people over lockdown, she was at home on her laptop all day and her neck and shoulders became tight and painful. It was a stressful time, and although medication controlled her symptoms to some extent, the new normal meant her symptoms increased in regularity and intensity.
A friend of Christina’s suggested that she try acupuncture as it had been helpful to her.
Although apprehensive, Christina was very open to the process. Some people respond very quickly to acupuncture – and Christina was one of them. Even I was amazed at the progress she made from day one.
Since starting treatment I have seen a noticeable reduction in migraines and I haven’t had any seizures in three months. This is the longest I have ever been seizure free. I have now been able to go back to regular exercise, which is something my seizures had a huge impact on and I missed exercising so much!
Acupuncture not only reduced my seizure, it’s also made a difference in the tension I carry.
Rita is amazing, so attentive, encouraging and supportive. Each week she shared in my excitement at seeing the treatment having such a profound effect on my epilepsy. I felt very reassured by her – especially at the beginning, as I had never tried acupuncture before and was obviously very anxious about it!
