Can Acupuncture Help With Muscle Pain?
Muscle pain is one of the most common forms of pain people complain about. It can be any where on the body, for example arm, neck, back or leg.
People often mistakenly think that neck pain is a trapped nerve when it can be muscular. The same applies to back pain or sciatica.
It's my belief that mental stress is absorbed into the body, like a hard drive on a PC. Your body stores all your stresses and ailments and for this reason the body is situated in the past. This is contrary to the mind which is projected into the future, worrying about what's to come. Then we have the fives senses which live in the now. Good health is the ability to marry all three aspects into the present moment, the now, where our power is.
Muscle pain in Twickenham, London
Acupuncture is very effective at relieving muscle tension, so much so that osteopaths and physiotherapists use it (but often with poor training).
Once an acupuncture needle is inserted into a tense muscle, it instantly releases it. Acupuncture is able to peel off layers of tension. With each subsequent acupuncture session, more and more layers of tension are taken away allowing the muscle to move freely, which treats the pain.
I've helped many people with tense muscles that are causing them pain.
