Acupuncture and especially Light Therapy laser treatments come highly recommended for pain, with their success stories attracting considerable media attention.
Acupuncture heals the body by stimulating specific points, which improve circulation by dilating the blood vessels. This circulates oxygen more efficiently around the body, which results in decreasing inflammation, stimulating the release of pain-relieving endorphins and enkephalins. Both of which have pain-relieving properties and improve immune function.
For many people, pain is temporary and will often get better with time. Many try acupuncture, hoping to help speed up recovery time, which is sometimes of essence, for example, with an upcoming sporting event.
For others, pain may be a chronic condition that prevents the pursuit of a normal life. The advantage of using acupuncture and light therapy, is that there are no side effects.
Depending on the cause and severity of the pain, and the overall health of the patient, Juli will develop a treatment plan consisting of traditional acupuncture or a combination of needle and laser work. Because your body and health are different from other patients being treated, each treatment plan is going to be different.
Many patients will leave their first treatment in no or less pain. For others the pain has lessened by the next day. Others don’t see a difference until their third or fourth session.
Initially, a course of 4-6 weekly treatments is best to allow the Acupuncture to work and experience positive changes. When providing you with a treatment plan your acupuncturist takes into consideration the length of time you’ve had the problem, the severity of your problem and, your response to the initial 3 or 4 acupuncture treatments.
Patients with chronic pain conditions may find a maintenance treatment every 4 or 6 weeks, keeps their pain manageable or at bay.
Longterm Pain & Panic Attacks
My wife and I found Juli Stewart following a successful couple of sessions on an Icelandic cruise, which led us to acupuncture. I suffer from pain ranging from medium to severe and panic episodes brought on by this and a series of traumatic operations. Juli has helped immensely and I can recommend this type of treatment without reservation.
I twisted my lower back about 15 years ago, went to an osteopath on and off for 4 years; I was in constant pain. I started having acupuncture with Juli and had a 4-week course, which took the pain away. The acupuncture does not cure a bad back but takes the pain away so you can get on with your life. I still go once a month to keep the back pain away.
My days were full of chronic pain where my ability to live a normal life was growing ever smaller. Juli, your acupuncture has changed my life totally. Now I make plans, and challenge myself knowing that if I am struggling you are there for me to call on, not only with your acupuncture but with all your advice and ability to listen. I now think of you not only as my acupuncturist but as my friend – Thank you!
Acute Neck Pain
I am 99% cured! Thank you so much. Why didn’t I come and see you earlier?
Lower Back Pain
It’s amazing! The relief is the same as when I have steroid injections.
Juli, thanks so much for your excellent acupuncture treatment. My knee was back to normal within 2 or 3 days of the last session. New to this – it works!
