BACK, JOINT AND MUSCLE PAIN
Lisa has completed post graduate training in Meridian Wave Acupuncture which is a highly effective system of acupuncture for pain relief and healing.
It has been tested with great success in a randomized controlled trial * at the Emergency Room of a major hospital in Israel for acute back or neck pain. Results showed a decrease in total pain of more than 40% and an increase in spinal flexion-extension of more than 80% compared to placebo acupuncture. A summary of this research was recently presented by Amos Ziv as a lecture in the European Conference of Integrative Medicine in Florence Italy and at The British Acupuncture Council Conference 2015.
Commonly seen conditions include:
- back and neck chronic or acute pain
- reduced range of motion
- joint pain
- frozen shoulder
- golfer/tennis elbow
- knee and muscular problems.
I also integrate therapeutic massage with acupuncture if appropriate.
