More and more Americans with health problems are looking at holistic healing in order to ease their pain. Acupuncture and massage therapy are two of the most widely used forms of alternative medicine and we offer both here at OSR in Kailua. Because of the nature of these ancient practices, they are often used together in order to give the most beneficial outcome. As both of these practices are being more widely accepted by health professionals and patients, they’re being used to treat many different ailments.
Massage and acupuncture are commonly used together in Eastern cultures in a practice called Tui Na in Chinese medicine. They are used successfully for ailments such as headaches, Fibromyalgia, and nerve damage are all conditions in which acupuncture and massage therapy can both play a huge roll in pain relief. Not to mention, both of these treatments are also utilized greatly for stress relief and relieving muscle tension. Acupuncture and massage are used the most at our office to work on neck, shoulder, lower and upper back pain.
Acupuncture alone is a great way to reach the root of neck pain and back pain. Generally, the pain is coming from muscles that it are difficult to reach in stretches. Acupuncture is a way to reach deep into the muscles and joints in order to help relieve the pain. When you combine massage, you are actually enhancing the effects of acupuncture and increasing the functionality of the procedure. If you receive a massage directly after your treatment, the massage effects will last much longer. Using this combo as a form of pain relief/relaxation can be incomparable.
