Acupuncture Lincoln: Treatments
Feel happier and healthier by reducing pain and injury:
Back pain - most back pain is caused by muscle tension, strains, minor injuries and irritated or pinched nerves which acupuncture treats by killing pain, reducing inflammation and improving muscle stiffness and joint mobility.
Chronic pain - NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) recognises how effective acupuncture can be and recommends it for chronic pain. Chronic pain often results from osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, low back, shoulder and neck pain, headaches and migraines, cancer, fibromyalgia, sciatica, trigeminal neuralgia, irritable bowel syndrome, and endometriosis.
Acupuncture is also used to help with: Migraines and Headaches, Digestive Problems, Menstrual Problems, Menopause ... read more on my treatments page.
Improve your emotional health by:
Reducing stress - it could be work-related, increased alcohol intake, smoking, exams, divorce, pregnancy or maybe just lifestyle. Stress can be overwhelming. Physically, you can feel tired, have sore muscles, dull skin and haphazard sleep patterns. Acupuncture helps you to relax by deactivating the ‘analytical brain’ which is responsible for worry and anxiety.
Calming anxiety - debilitating panic attacks, headaches, pain and insomnia are some of the unwelcome anxiety led symptoms and they are generally treated using medication. Sustained stress means you are stuck in a constant fight or flight mode and you become unable to relax. Acupuncture activates your parasympathetic nervous system which opposes your sympathetic nervous system. This turns off the fight or flight response, enabling you to to feel calm and relaxed.
Lifting depression - low mood, loss of interest in enjoyable activities, anxiety, irritability, low self-esteem, disturbed sleep or appetite, weight change, tiredness, lack of motivation, concentration or libido are unpleasant symptoms associated with depression. Depression can be triggered by stress, bereavement, chronic illness causing long-term pain, financial difficulties or relationship problems. Studies indicate that acupuncture has a positive effect on depression by regulating the brain’s mood chemistry increasing the levels of feel good hormones called endorphins and serotonin.
"Preeti has really helped with my back issues (3 prolapsed discs) and hamstrings. I just got used to being in pain and have taken painkillers for over 15 years. For the first time in years, I have now gone an entire month without needing them."
"I received my first acupuncture treatment for eczema many years ago.
I was stunned at how effective acupuncture was, amazed at how it helped me to sleep better and deal more confidently with the stress of life."
