Back Pain

Harness the power of acupuncture to relieve back pain, neck pain, and sciatica

Acupuncture for Back Pain

Most of us suffer back ache from time to time, but when a little niggle turns into chronic pain, life becomes impossible. Back pain is the UK’s leading cause of disability and the number one reason for taking sick leave. Painkillers can provide temporary relief, but strong drugs carry strong side-effects. Acupuncture offers a drug-free effective way to manage back pain and discomfort.
Back Pain Treatment

With over nineteen different muscles, it is easy to see why our backs are prone to injury and pain. Lower back pain is the most common type of back problem. This is often triggered by muscle strains, minor injuries, or a trapped nerve.

Shoulder and neck pain are also widespread, usually caused by muscle tension from poor posture or stress. As part of your treatments I discuss movement and relaxation techniques with you, to complement the acupuncture and support your own daily back care regime.


How Does Acupuncture Relieve Back Pain?

Extensive research by the British Acupuncture Council shows that Traditional Chinese Medicine acupuncture relieves back pain and sciatica by;

● Improving blood flow to the damaged muscles
● Stimulating the release of natural pain-killing endorphins
● Promoting relaxation
● Triggering activity of anti-inflammatory compounds

Acupuncture can be safely used alongside conventional medical treatments and is an excellent alternative for those wishing to avoid painkilling medication.

As a member of the national charity BackCare and a registered Appropriate Provider of Care under the NHS AQP (Any Qualified Provider) scheme for musculoskeletal services you can feel assured of the quality and standard of my acupuncture treatments for back pain relief.

What my clients are saying about acupuncture for back pain relief…
“Tiziana managed to ease my lower back pain due to intense running training almost immediately and to considerably improve the condition of my right shoulder that I had injured over a year ago. She succeeded where others had failed. I am really happy with her treatment and I would recommend her to anyone!”

“I visited Tiziana in an attempt to help with severe sciatica which doctors and physiotherapists had done nothing to alleviate. I limped up to her treatment room and after one session I walked back down with a considerable improvement on day one. She is extremely easy to talk to and takes time to ensure she has a good background to your medical history before she does anything, so you feel in safe hands. I had the 6 sessions she advised, and I cannot thank her enough for her care. I mentioned one-time occasional migraines and vertigo and she as treated these most successfully as well.”

Dear patients,

It is with a truly broken heart that I am informing you that I am temporarily closing my clinic from Monday 23rd March 2020. I will re-open it once things get back to normal and once our Government tells us it’s safe to do so.

If you have pre-payed your appointments in a block booking, all of these appointments will be valid once I re-open my clinic.

Please, stay in touch and call me, text me or email me to reschedule your appointments, once things get back to normal.

This situation is also affecting us all financially, so, once you are back, if you feel you cannot afford to pay my full fees, just give me a donation instead. Please do not let the financial aspect put you off having treatments with me in the future.

Thank you so much for all your support. My work is my calling and vocation in life and treating you gives me immense joy. I look forward to re-opening my clinic to seeing you all again soon.

A big hug,

Tiziana xx
