Cupping & Tui Na
Cupping can be used to find the zones causing pain and stiffness and relieve them of their stagnation. These marks are textbook for localised pain and typical of someone suffering from Fybromyalgia. They’re not too dark or densely speckled and you’ll notice not every placement produced the marking… Followed up by some Tui Na (Chinese massage) . The relief a patient feels post treatment is extraordinary! A patients words after treatment today were “I feel so much lighter and free”
This patient used to see our Acupuncturist Laura Jones every week for 6 weeks to manage her symptoms then gradually spaced treatment out so now she is seen once a month. Acupuncture and cupping isn’t painful.
These marks will slowly fade as the body removes the waste and allow for better blood flow therefore less painYou can make an appointment to try cupping or acupuncture or both!

Your body. One whole complex piece
Your body works as one whole complex piece! We have the tendancy to compartmentalise our bodies and focus on one bit at a time when there’s an issue. Often at times forgetting that emotion strongly affects physiology and that our organs feel stress too!
Where do you feel your worry? Fear? Joy? Anger? Grief? As just one example – you might feel “sick to the stomach” with worry….
Think about how you experience health and illness and view your body inside and out as a whole system
Following on but on the same theme here’s a fun image showing the names of muscles! All of which work well as a team. You’re never really using just one! And they need smooth functioning fascia, tendons and ligaments too. Keep your system running at its best.
