If you have sciatic pain from lower back to hamstring

  1. Palm facing yourself, draw a line from wrist on thumb side all the way up to the elbow 
  2. Find the most tender spot, press and hold for 10-15 seconds
  3. Hold the point and move the lower back and leg gently at the same time 
  4. Move on to next tender spot and repeat. 

Do this a few times a day or whenever you start feeling the pain or tension coming!

Manage expectations…

A key factor in acupuncture treatment is the depth of the injury tissue. As you can image, the sciatic nerve is a very deep layer injury, even with needles, we have to insert deeper to find the trigger points for a greater result. The acupressure massage can only reach the upper layer of the issue, hence it can still give result but temporarily. If you want to heal the root, acupuncture is a better treatment. 

Let us know if any particular conditions you want to know!

Acupuncture- a new option to manage anxiety and depression (Show care to people around you)

It’s sad to find the iconic and lovable Robin Williams dead today, who was struggling with drugs and depression. But what makes me think if we can identify depressed people around you and get the right treatments.

For people with depression, acupuncture could be the missing piece in a complete management plan.

In Traditional Chinese medicine system, mental disorders are caused by “Yin-Yang” imbalance resulting from a weak liver, spleen, heart or kidneys. It is classifies according to how much each Organ has been disturbed and how the Qi is affected. Acupuncture seeks to restore its natural balance by correcting energy blocks or imbalances between Yin and Yang.

Patients would experience a reduction in tension, restlessness, sadness, headache, cephalic paresthesia, and loss of appetite.

One new study in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine found the traditional Chinese practice to be as effective as antidepressants, and a different study found that acupuncture may help treat the medications’ side effects. Another study published in the journal PLOS Medicine, shows that adding acupuncture or counseling to usual care for depression could help to decrease symptoms of the condition in the short- to medium-term. Western research suggests the needles may activate natural painkillers in the brain; in traditional Chinese medicine, the process is believed to improve functioning.

Acupuncture would not be a replacement but clearly it is a new option.

But whatever treatment to use, it is important to take metal disorder patients to get right medical care, as most of the time, they dun aware and refuse any help. Do show care!!
