The goal of Western Pain Relief Acupuncture is to release muscle shortening, which can compress and irritate nerves. Supersensitive areas can be desensitized, and the persistent pull of shortened muscles can be released.
In todays lifestyle we can overload the joints and muscles of our body through overuse of computers, cars and poor work posture. Muscle imbalances and strains can follow alongside a great deal of residual nervous system tension. Acupuncture can help you to feel revitalised and relaxed in the midst of our daily work load.

“I had suffered with tightness in my neck and shoulders for a few weeks and it wasn’t improving; Mike suggested acupuncture and initially I was sceptical; I couldn’t understand how a few needles could help. But within a few minutes of treatment I was convinced .The tightness had gone and my range of motion had increased dramatically; before I could just about turn my head to each side, afterwards I could look behind me! The results were far better than I was expecting. I’m now a real convert and would definitely recommend it” Amanda Martin
