Is Massage Therapy Your Best Choice?

Back Pain relief with Acupuncture in MinneapolisMany of my patients tell me that they get regular massage to try to relieve their pain. But they also tell me that the pain relieving effects of massage only lasts very short term. Why is that?

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine there are 4 levels of Qi (vital life energy) and Blood. Massage and acupressure tap into the first level. But acupuncture and Chinese herbs can tap into ALL FOUR Levels. Why? Because they work on a much deeper, more specific level.

Here’s just one example: One of my regular patients came in today. She was being treated for depression. Her depression is already starting to lift after only 5 acupuncture treatments. But today she told me that she had a terrible pain in her upper back. And she had just got a massage yesterday. Now I’m not saying massage is bad or worthless because I love massage myself. But my patient just had a 1 hour massage yesterday and the pain in her upper back was still as intense as it was before she got the massage.

Back Pain Relief In 5 Minutes

So I asked her: “How would you like to get rid of your pain in less than 5 minutes?” She laughed in disbelief and said “OK.” After inserting only 2 hair-thin needles in her opposite arm, her upper back pain was reduced by 70%!

Your Body Has The Ability To Heal Itself

The truth is acupuncture works beautifully in conjunction with massage. You might even find that it is more powerful. Acupuncture successfully addresses a wide variety of conditions such as anxiety, PMS, menstrual cramps, migraines, insomnia, IBS and TMJ to mention just a few.

Do You Want A Therapist Who Can Help You Accelerate That Self Healing Ability?

Using A Holistic Medicine Approach

Maybe modern medicine is not your first choice? You might have tried pain medications or are using some now. You probably still suffer from the same pain and maybe from the side effects of the medications. Working with a therapist who has extensive knowledge of alternative medicine treatment options for lasting pain relief, improved range of motion and stress reduction could be one of the best decisions you’re ever made.

It can make a massive difference in who you chose for a health therapist and health coach…especially one who relieves your chronic pain, stiff joints and stress quickly and easily.

I have tried many treatments to help reduce my pain. The acupuncture I received from Steven has made me feel better than anytime in the last ten years.”

Greg Shaughnessy

Our clinic is often the last resort for many people. They have already tried massage therapists, their family doctor, pain medications, muscle relaxers, chiropractors, physical therapists, even hypnotherapists. People who have chronic pain for years often feel trapped in hopelessness. A client of mine came to me after open heart surgery. He explained there was nothing that could be done because he had tried everything. Then we began acupuncture therapy. We problem solved areas of pain and inflammation not only from the surgery itself, but also other over worked areas and joints he had difficulties with for years.  He said the therapies we used were successful in his ability to move past the pain and into a new, healthier place.
