There are two types of pain: musko-skeletal pain and neurological pain. Musko-skeletal pain includes neck, shoulder, back, arm/leg, joint, arthritis, hip, fibromyalgia, and tendinitis pains, sports injuries, etc. On the other hand, neurological pain includes migraines and other headaches, sciatica, tremors, post-stroke pain, numbness pain, Bell’s paralysis, facial paralysis, etc.
The principle of treating musko-skeletal and neurological pain is very simple. Acupuncture can reach the deeper levels of muscles, tendons and ligaments to order to balance the Qi and stimulate the blood circulation to remove toxins. It also greatly reduces inflammation and speeds up the healing process.
Tui Na, in combination with or without acupuncture, helps to lessen the stiffness in joints and tendons and regulate the energy throughout the body.
