People often ask me why I became an acupuncturist. Since the age of 12, I suffered from neck pain and headaches. After years of unsuccessful chiropractic treatment, physiotherapy and lots of painkillers, I discovered acupuncture.
After my first treatment I was hooked! I knew that this was not only the treatment that would change my life, but this was my vocation. Acupuncture helped my neck pain and headaches so much that I decided to make a career out of it.
Acupuncture is extremely effective for both acute and chronic neck pain. I find it also really helps improve the range of motion.
People often experience headaches associated with tightness of the neck and shoulder muscles. I have found that in 90% of cases I have treated, acupuncture alleviates these types of headaches completely.
I like to combine Acupuncture, Massage, PNF Stretches and Cranio-Sacral Therapy for the most effective treatment of neck pain. I have found that patients gain the most benefit from having a course of 8-12 treatments. I usually like to see a patient twice in the first week followed by weekly treatments for 4-6 weeks. After this time patients will then go to maintenance treatments once every 2-4 weeks.
