Massage therapy is the manipulation of superficial and deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue using various techniques, to enhance function, aid in the healing process, decrease muscle over activity and promote relaxation and wellbeing. As well as the numerous physiological benefits, massage can help to reduce stress, anxiety, enhancing self-esteem and improving overall wellbeing.
Acupuncture is an effective treatment technique for relieving pain and restoring the body of many other ailments and dysfunctions. Growing in popularity due to the significant benefits it gives.
Acupuncture originated in China over two thousand years ago. The traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) model of this technique supports the concept of using needles inserted into the skin at specific points to influence the movement and levels of ‘Qi’ (i.e. the energy or life force) within the body. According to TCM theory, any change in the flow or balance of Qi can lead to pain, disease and disability.
Scientific research has examined the effectiveness of acupuncture in various conditions. The use of acupuncture for the treatment of pain is supported by an ever growing body of evidence. Acupuncture has even now been evident in the recommendation given by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Evidence (NICE) for the cost effective short term benefits it has for nonspecific low back pain (source: NICE 2009).
