Did you know?

  • Acupuncture is effective in providing pain relief because it stimulates the release of endorphins
  • Generally, there are no side effects to acupuncture for pain relief because no chemicals or artificial substances are used at all.
  • Results are long lasting because Chinese Medicine aims to target the root cause of your condition, rather than merely masking the symptoms

How acupuncture relieves pain:

Acupuncture can be very effective for easing a wide variety of pain ailments, ranging from back pain, sciatica, headaches, migraines, sinus pain, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, joint pain, tennis elbow, neck and shoulder pain, period-pain etc.

In Chinese Medicine, it is said that when “the Qi (vital energy) is stuck, there is pain. When the Qi flows freely, there is no pain”.

So, from the Chinese Medicine point of view, acupuncture eases pain by promoting the free flow of Qi in the body.

As a member of the British Acupuncture Council, I am now an official Appropriate Provider of Care under the NHS AQP implementation pack for musculoskeletal services.

Acupuncture relieves pain by:

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)

What our patients are saying

I love going to Tiziana for acupuncture. It is always so calming and I feel like it resets both my mind and body.

Very highly recommended.

Emma Allison

Excellent service I came with knee pain and after my treatment I feel great and no pain any more I would recommend to anyone it’s also relaxing and pain free.

Gordon Grimshaw

Before coming to York, I had lived and worked in many countries. And “frequented” acupuncturists there. I know good ones, even excellent ones.

But Tiziana is out of category, she is a magician!
