Relief from pain or stress
I use massage and acupuncture to relieve pain in its various forms, in the mind or body. Treatments can involve one or both therapies, depending on what is most effective and your preference.
I use deep tissue massage primarily to reduce muscular tension and promote healthy circulation and acupuncture to reduce pain. Pain in this context can mean almost any discomfort that you experience, physical or emotional.
As part of deep tissue massage and acupuncture, I use dry and sliding cupping as well as other techniques.
A recent study lists acupuncture as having an effect on 117 different conditions: Australian Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Association research.

As a British Acupuncture Council acupuncturist, many health insurance schemes will pay for my acupuncture treatments, with an appropriate referral. I often combine tui na massage and acupuncture, which could also qualify. Please ask me for further details if this interests you.
