I think we have a huge capacity to bear pain.  To live with migraines.  Back pain.  Sports injuries.

But, this is why I specialise in acupuncture for pain relief.  Because I don't think you need to live with your pain.  Or solely rely on medication.  


I am not suggesting that acupuncture is a miracle.  Or that it works every time.  But, acupuncture's capacity to relieve chronic pain is now recommended by the National Institute for Care and Excellence (NICE) the body which is responsible for providing the National Health Service (NHS) with evidence and quality standards for improving outcomes for people using the NHS.

The NICE guidelines for chronic pain (published in April 2021) states

"Overall, the committee agreed that there was a large evidence base showing acupuncture to be clinically effective in the short term (3 months); the original economic modelling also showed it is likely to be cost-effective"

But acupuncture isn't just for chronic pain relief.  It can be for many other types of pain including acute and sports injuries.
