Back Pain – Migraines – Headaches – Neck Pain – Arthritis – Knee Pain

Back Pain Management with York Traditional Acupuncture Would you like a relaxing and safe approach to relieving the aches and pains that just won’t go away?

York Traditional Acupuncture provides Chinese medicine acupuncture that helps ease the pain.

In a recent review of the research on acupuncture, the British Acupuncture Council states that Acupuncture may be effective in providing pain relief because it stimulates the release of endorphins. There are generally no side effects because no chemicals or artificial substances are used at all. And it’s long lasting because Chinese Medicine aims to target the root cause of your condition, rather than merely masking the symptoms.

Here’s what David had to say about my approach to pain management:

One morning in August 2011, I went to work as normal, which is delivering parcels for Parcelforce. But for some reason that morning I started to get a pain in my back. For a little while I tried to carry on working, until the pain got so bad I could not get in and out of my van.


I thought something was seriously wrong with my back. Seeing as I could not carry on working and could hardy move without being in tremendous pain. I felt sure that I was going to be off work for several weeks!


But after Tizianas acupuncture, I felt so much better, although I still had a little twinge, I was able to go back to work much sooner than I had feared. Then after continuing acupuncture, my back felt totally fine, in fact it felt better than it ever felt!


I was so glad and grateful to Tiziana for sorting my back out so well and so quickly as for anyone contemplating acupuncture, I would highly recommend Tiziana and acupuncture.


You will not realise how fantastic acupuncture is until you have personally experienced it yourself.

From a Western medical perspective, acupuncture helps ease pain by:

• increasing blood circulation to the affected areas

• stimulating the release of endorphins (the body’s own natural pain-killers)

• stimulating the release of neurotransmitters such as serotonin

• relaxing the muscles

• strengthening the immune system

• interrupting the transmission of pain (Gate theory)

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
