Dr Tan Balance Method Acupuncture Instant Relief Achilles Tendon Pain -Centre of Balance, Hamilton, NZ

 

Let me give you some idea about Achilles tendinopathy or Achilles tendinitis (tendonitis) or Achilles tendon inflammation and their symptoms before I tell you about this achilles tendon case. According to the website of webmd.com.

Achilles tendinitis (tendonitis) or Achilles tendon inflammation, Hamilton, NZ

 Where is achilles tendon?

The achilles tendon connects the calf muscle to the heel bone. It is the largest tendon in the body and can endure great force, but is still susceptible to injury.

 What is the function of achilles tendon?

It lets you rise up on your toes and push off when you walk or run.

 What is the different between achilles tendinopathey, achilles tendinitis, achilles tendon inflammation and achilles tendinosis?

 Achilles tendinopathy : We often use the term tendinopathey to include both tendinitis (tendonitis) and tendinosis.

 Tendinitis: This actually means “inflammation” of the tendon." Achilles tendonitis or achilles tendon inflammation occurs when the tendon becomes inflamed, as a result of the achilles tendon being overuse and put under too much strain. But inflammation is rarely the cause of tendon pain.

 Tendinosis. This refers to tiny tears (microtears) in the tissue in and around the tendon. These tears are caused by overuse. In most cases, Achilles tendon pain is the result of tendinosis, not tendinitis.

But many doctors may still use the term tendinitis (tendonitis) to describe a tendon injury.

 Attention:

 Achilles tendinitis (tendonitis) is usually the result of strenuous, high impact exercise, such as running, therefore resting is important to achilles tendon pain. If you ignored it, Achilles tendinitis can lead to the tendon tearing or rupturing, therefore it is important to seek the necessary treatment.

 

 

Chirag has recently treated a patient who has dianosised Achilles tendinitis and had been Achilles tendon pain for the previous 3 or 4 months. The patient has been to a massage therapist and a physiotherapist. The physiotherapist gave the patient acupuncture on and around the Achilles tendon, on the painful area. But the pain persisted.

The pain and swelling were in the right side Achilles and originated through a running injury. The Achilles pain was worst while walking on a treadmill and was causing the patient to limp while walking. The pain level was 5/10 on resting and worse after walking or doing activities.

Chirag applied Dr Tan’s Balance Acupuncture Method on his left hand, and the patient experienced immediate relief of the pain in right side Achilles. The patient could then walk easily without any pain or limping after his first treatment.

Acupuncture Treatment Cured Severe Acute Piriformis Syndrome within 4 sessions at Centre of Balance Hamilton, NZ

Let me give you some idea about Piriformis Syndrome and its symptoms before I tell you about this case study. According to the website of spine-health there is no simple diagnostic test for piriformis syndrome causing irritation of the sciatic nerve. The condition is primarily diagnosed on the basis of the patient’s symptoms and on a physical exam, and after excluding other possible causes of the patient’s pain.


Acupuncture Treatment for Piriformis Syndrome at Centre of Balance Hamilton, NZ


What are the symptoms of Piriformis Syndrome?

Most commonly, patients describe acute tenderness in the buttock and sciatica-like pain down the back of the thigh, calf and foot. Typical piriformis syndrome symptoms may include:

·      A dull ache in the buttock

·      Pain down the back of the thigh, calf and foot (sciatica)

·      Pain when walking up stairs or inclines

·      Increased pain after prolonged sitting

·      Reduced range of motion of the hip joint

 

Symptoms of piriformis syndrome often become worse after prolonged sitting, walking or running, and may feel better after lying down on the back.



When I saw Lesley on 11/09/2014, she was limping, was in a lot of pain and had a very sad look on her face. She complained of pain in the left buttock down to her left leg for the last 4 days.  The pain level was 6/10 when she was resting in a sitting position. The pain would build up to 10 as soon as she began to walk. She was on painkillers which had not helped at all in the last few days. She did not experience any numbness or tingling or pins and needles down to the left leg and toes. She could only walk for a few steps, then the pain would kick in within 10 steps and she would need to sit down and wait until the pain had subsided. She could not lay on her back at all and was only able to lay on her right side with an electric blanket for sleeping at night. She could not stand for longer than 5 minutes.

I examined her lower back and hip, then told her that her pain was not from her lower back so she didn’t need to worry about a lumbar herniated disc or lumbar slipped disc either. The pain was caused by the left piriformis muscle which is located in the buttock region.  This muscle was in spasm and causing pain in her left buttock. The piriformis muscle had also irritated the sciatic nerve and was causing the pain in her left thigh, calf and ankle.

At first, I thought this will be very easy to fix with Dr Tan’s Sancha Combo like other piriformis syndrome cases. I used the Sancha combo (only 7 acupuncture needles on the right hand), and immediately Lesley was able to walk around in the clinic for more than 100 steps without any pain in her left buttock or leg. Unfortunately, as soon as she stood still, she started to feel the pain again and the pain gradually built up to 6/10. The pain was very sharp, which means the blockage was very bad. I decided to apply bloodletting. I found a big bruised vein on Lesley’s left lower leg on the lateral side of the Stomach channel and Gall Bladder channel. I let some blood from those 2 veins. I also did bloodletting on the left buttock on the Gall Bladder channel. She walked without pain for about 2 minutes and she could even lay on her back without any pain. Lesley walked out of our clinic with a smile on her face, without limping and without any pain. Her only homework was to keep applying heat packs along the spine and both buttocks as often as she could at home.

My colleague Polly saw Lesley on 12/09/2014 and she reported that she had slept right through the night on her back, and could now stand and walk for longer periods. The pain was not as sharp after the first treatment, which meant I had unblocked the channel, and she only needed more blood flow on the meridians of the left buttock and left leg. Polly did Dr Tan’s Sancha combo on her right hand and Unique point massage on her lower back and left buttock.

Lesley received her third acupuncture treatment from Polly on 13/09/2014. She reported that she was getting much better, she could stand and walk even longer before she felt the pain. The pain was now mainly in her left knee. Polly applied the same treatment as the last time.

I re-assessed Lesley on 16/09/2014 and, as you can see on the video, she’s happy and reported that she is pain free and able to bend her back and lift up her leg freely.

Acupuncture can reduce piriformis syndrome very quickly. We fixed this case with only 4 acupuncture treatments.  We guarantee you will experience immediate pain relief in your first treatment or your money back. Call 07 855 7115 NOW or email us NOW to book an appointment with one of our pain experts at Centre of Balance Hamilton, NZ.

We just received an email testimonial from Lesley. Here is what she said "I just received an email testimonial from Lesley. she said "I recently suffered my first sciatica episode the pain on a scale of 1 to 10 was 10+ I could not stand walk or lie down without experiencing the most severe pain in my hip, back and right down my left leg.

Pain at a level I have never experienced before!

On the advice of a work colleague I went to Centre of Balance in Dinsdale and was treated by Szenan phua.

The first acupuncture session gave me relief and after 4 sessions I am pain free and fully mobile again!!

I cannot thank SZenan enough and happily recommend him to any one suffering  pain.

Case Study: Hip Pain - Acupuncture Helped Patient Avoid Hip Replacement, Centre of Balance Hamilton, NZ.

Discover How Acupuncture cures hip pain and patient avoids hip replacement! Guarantee to fix your hip pain or you money back.


Kim injured his lower back again recently. He went to see one of our local Chinese acupuncturists in Hamilton East, because he could not book an appointment with us as we were fully booked. He had 2 treatments with the acupuncturist and felt that the result was not too good. He called us and wanted to see me to fix his lower back pain, because he was very good and without any pain ever since his last treatment here 3 years ago.


In his first treatment on 22/08/2014, he complained of pain in the right side of his lower back which was getting better after 2 sessions of acupuncture with the first Chinese acupuncturist in Hamilton East.  He also mentioned that he has had pain in his right hip for 18 months and the specialist suggested that he get a hip replacement. The acupuncture treatment (with cupping and needles on his right low back where the pain was) helped the pain in his back, but the hip pain remained the same.


 This is Kim's first treatment video:


I examined his lower back and right hip according to TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine), then I told Kim that I could treat his hip pain as well as his lower back pain, and that he would not need to have a hip replacement. I realise that there are a lot of hip problems and back problems that don’t need an operation, but lots of people have surgery because of severe pain, X-ray and MRI. 


I only inserted 4 acupuncture needles on Kim’s left hand without doing any treatment on his right hip and right lower back. He reported no more pain in his right hip and back as soon as all the needles went in. I did some bloodletting on some of the bruised veins on his right lower back and buttock, these were the blockages that were decreasing the bloodflow to the area.


2 Kim's lower back pain treatment of bloodletting in Centre of Balance Hamilton.html

 

In his second treatment on 26/08/2014, Kim reported that the pain came back after he worked extremely hard yesterday. I choosed YuanLiZhen to loosened up the tendon around his right hip to increase the circulation to the area and help it heel. 


The following picture shows YuanLiZhen, very different with other acupuncture needle that you have seen in most of the acupuncture clinic. The only acupuncture needle that able to loosen tight tendon around hip joint. YuanLiZhen is one type of the Nine Needle from HuangDiNeiJing (also known as the Inner Canon of Huangdi or Yellow Emperor's Inner Canon).

员利针

 

In his third session on 28/08/2014, Kim reported that he no longer suffered from any pain in his lower back and right hip, he only felt tight in his right hip at the end of the day after work. I loosened up the tendon in the right groin, applied Dr Tan Balance Method acupuncture and did acupuncture on Kim’s left shoulder (ashi point on Sj, SI meridian). Please note that needling the left shoulder was for the tightness in the right hip, nothing to do with his shoulder as he never complained of any shoulder issue.


I took this video in the sixth session. Kim's going to tell you how he felt with his treatment and this following video shows (begin from 2:00)  how to applied Dr Tan Balance Method acupuncture on left shoulder to treat right hip pain.


Kim has been great, without any pain or tightness after his fourth session of acupuncture treatment. I only applied Dr Tan Balance Method acupuncture on his left shoulder from the fourth session to sixth session. I also showed him how to practice HongYuanGong (a type of Qi Gong) every day at home.

 

This is just one of my hip pain cases, I have been successful helping some patients to avoid hip replacement and get back to thier normal pain free lives.

The general rules for recurrent lower back pain and persistent lower back pain.

I do have to tell you that there are general rules for recurrent lower back pain and persistent lower back pain after your treatment at Centre of Balance Hamilton.

Keep good posture for back painin Hamilton NZ

 

1. It is best to rest after treatment.  That means no exercise, heavy lifting, or standing for a long period of time.

2. You may well be sore for a couple of days after treatment and this is best handled with hot baths or hot wheat packs as often as you can.

3. Don’t get any other form of massage therapy or bodywork on the day.  If you do have another treatment on the day, please inform us first.

4. Try to cut back on sugary foods and acid-forming foods (especially alcohol), and avoid cold foods and drinks when you start back pain treatment with us.

5. Don’t do exercise that will trigger your lower back pain.  Only do exercise that feels good for your back.

6. Try to think about posture all the time, analysing the way you are sitting and standing to be sure you are balanced.

7. Keep heat packs along your spine as much as you can.


Treating persistent lower back pain and recurrent lower back pain does require time and effort.  We guarantee you will see immediate results in your first visit or your money back.  Once you can see the immediate results* in your first session, you should keep going with treatments until you are pain free in your lower back, and all the unique JiaJi points have no tenderness when we press on them.

 (*Immediate results is defined as improvement in level of pain or range of movement from what you felt when you walked in the door. )

Treating Persistent Lower Back Pain and Recurrent Lower Back Pain in Hamilton, NZ

If you have not been given the correct lower back pain treatments previously, you may end up suffering from persistent lower back pain or recurrent lower back pain.  Your previous lower back pain will often still subside eventually, but more due to the body’s ability to compensate for the imbalances, rather than the real cause of the problem being addressed and corrected.  This is why, when I’m treating a back pain patient, in the process of fixing their current back pain I often find the cause of a prior problem they had that has since settled down, buried beneath layers of compensations.


Treating Persistent Lower Back Pain and Recurrent Lower Back Pain in Hamilton, NZ


I am often able to tell, via my unique JiaJi pressure points examination, that my patient had a shoulder injury or a calf injury, or some other injury a long time ago.  They have often forgotten about this previous injury until I remind them in my clinic, and invariably it’s that old injury that is the underlying cause of the new problem they have.


The reason that a secondary injury comes as a result of an original injury not being fixed properly is because when a pain goes away due to time and compensations it leaves an area with poor circulation and a restricted range of movement that eventually becomes weak.


This muscle tension and weakness can spread and cause other areas to compensate and be overloaded, resulting in the secondary pain or injury.


When it comes to back pain, circulation is the king.  Good circulation can prevent recurrent lower back pain, as well as quickly relieving persistent lower back pain.  By rebalancing the muscle system via unique JiaJi pressure points technique and restoring circulation to the problem areas, Dr Tan Balance Method Acupuncture and Unique JiaJi pressure points technique help to restore the body’s ability to reverse the tissue deterioration.  


It is through correcting these mechanical problems in the body and restoring balance to the whole group of back muscles that Unique JiaJi pressure points technique with heat bags proves to be so effective at removing lower back pain and restoring natural lower back range of movement.  Until your body is in this state you are unable to feel or function at your best, regardless of whatever else you do.


After our lower back pain treatments you should feel light, energized and more balanced, especially if you were out of balance to start with and we were successful at correcting that.


You may also feel a little light headed and washed out and perhaps sore in some of the unique JiaJi pressure points we had to work firmly during the treatment, but that should only be for an hour or two, or at worst up to two days on the weaker bodies.  It is possible that they could react a lot worse than that but only if there are extenuating circumstances, such as if you are very weak or you really overwork them by trying to do too much too quickly.  In very weak cases, I normally prescribe some ginseng with some warm tonic Chinese Medicine to build up your body.


Your back pain treatments normally start with 3 sessions weekly for the first 2 weeks, then continue with 2 sessions weekly afterwards.


If you have pain (normally on the JiaJi spots that we worked on) or problems within a few days of your treatment you should just have a hot bath or put hot wheat bags along the spine and rest more to give the treatment a chance to settle down and work for them.  The heat will increase the circulation and remove coldness on the points and muscles. It is important that you pay extra attention to keeping good posture at all times and do your lower back exercises if you have been advised to do them.


Again, everyone is different, and if you are concerned about your pain you should call us immediately on 07 855 7115.

Treating persistent lower back pain and recurrent lower back pain does require time and effort.  We guarantee you will experience immediate reduction in pain or increase in mobility in your first visit, or we won’t charge you. Call 07 855 7115 NOW or email us NOW to book an appointment with one of our pain expert team in Centre of Balance Hamilton, NZ.

How to Relieve Lower Back Pain Quickly

Many people suffer from lower back pain. Many factors can contribute to lower back pain, such as bad posture, accident or trauma, working in sedentary jobs, and so on.


Many of you may have undergone various treatments for back pain. These treatments not only cost you money, but also your time and still the lower back pain persists.  There are some who have tried various treatments for many years with no lasting results and they have decided to give up and endure living with the pain.


At Centre of Balance in Hamilton, we provide acupuncture and acupressure for back pain, sciatica treatment, herniated disc, pinched nerve, bulging disc, protruding disc, slipped disc, or prolapsed disc. Our treatment is so successful that we offer a 100% money back guarantee.  We promise that you will experience results (increased mobility or reduction in pain) in your first treatment or we will give you your money back.  We offer this money back guarantee for your first appointment for any treatment for pain.


We use a unique treatment combining point massage technique and balance method acupuncture which has had wonderful results for many of our patients.  Patients who have endured chronic pain for years will notice some improvement after the first treatment, and after following our treatment plan for several more treatments, they have been able to go back to their normal lifestyle. They can now walk pain free and participate in other activities that were previously interrupted by back pain. 


One patient came to our clinic with lower back pain at a level of 10/10.  He couldn’t bend forward or back at all, couldn’t drive, and could hardly walk.  The patient had ongoing back issues having broken his lumbar spine years ago, had spinal fusion surgery, and reinjured it after that. After treatment, the patient was able to walk out of the clinic with no pain.  Read about "how Acupuncture + needling on scar tissues fixed lower back pain within 3 sessions in Centre of Balance Hamilton". 


Another patient came to us having had chronic lower back pain for 4 years after an injury.  He had tried physiotherapy, chiropractic and painkillers with no success.  After 3 sessions of treatment at Centre of Balance, his lower back pain was fixed.  Go to this link to read more and see a video about this patient’s fast recovery from lower back pain: " Acupuncture - Chronic Lower Back Pain Fixed Within 3 Sessions - Centre of Balance ".


One last case study for you to check out is about another very fast recovery from lower back pain with acupuncture treatment at Centre of Balance.  Go to this link to see how this our practitioner was able to instantly reduce severe acute sciatic pain/sciatica by acupuncture and acupressure in one treatment, pain reduced from 7/10 down to 0/10.  


If your pain is chronic, your condition may not completely resolved in the first treatment, but you will experience immediate reduction in pain or increase in mobility in your first visit, or we won’t charge you. Call 07 855 7115 NOW or email us NOW to book an appointment with one of our pain expert team in Centre of Balance Hamilton, NZ.

Acupuncture + needling on scar tissues fixed lower back pain within 3 sessions in Centre of Balance Hamilton

This video was taken a few years ago.  I remember that Mr Kim’s daughter called that morning and made Mr Kim an appointment.  Mr Kim works and lives in Cambridge. He broke his lower lumbar spine when he was working in Singapore 10 years ago, then he had lumbar spine fusion surgery.  He mentioned that he always had some pain in his lower back.


 

Unfortunately, he injured his lower back again at work.  The pain was so bad that he was unable to drive or work.  He was hardly able to walk, had to keep his lower back straight and couldn’t bend his back forwards or backwards.  On a scale of 1 to 10 the pain level was 10.

 

I got him to lay on the massage table and put some needles in his hands and feet like in the video.  I always expect patients to say something like, “You are amazing, there is no pain in my lower back!”, or, “The pain is much better!” when I give them acupuncture on the right points.  I expect acupuncture to give my patient immediate results as soon as the acupuncture needle is applied on the acu-point.  Unfortunately, Mr Kim said the pain remained the same.  I rechecked which meridians were involved with his pain.  I was sure that I had chosen the right acupuncture points on his hands and feet.  I had no idea why those acupuncture points did not work for him at all.

 

Suddenly, I remembered there was a case study involving difficult lower back pain a few years ago in Taiwan.  The patient had very bad lower back pain due to abdominal surgery.  No one could fix it and even a high dosage of painkillers did not work for that patient.  In the end, she went out of hospital and went to one of the local clinics to see the experts in pain management.  That pain expert only gave her some massage on the scar on her abdomen caused by abdominal surgery.  She had instant pain relief from that scar massage without any treatment on her lower back.

 

I removed all the needles from Dr Kim’s hands and feet, then gave him acupuncture around his surgery scar to try to relax the scar tissue to help more circulation pass through that area.  Mr Kim reported he couldn’t felt any pain as soon as I inserted those needles around his scar.

 

When I removed the Acupuncture needles after 30 minutes, there was no pain in his lower back.  Back pain was instantly reduced from 10 to 0 on a scale of 0 to 10.  Mr Kim was able to walk out of my clinic without any help, and able to bend forwards and backwards without any pain.  Mr Kim was able to drive himself to his next 2 treatments.

 

Mr Kim did not have pain in the last 2 treatments when he visited me; he only felt stiffness in his lower back.  His lower back pain and stiff back were completely better after 3 acupuncture treatments.

 

Every back pain case is diferent, some cases only need acupuncture on hands, some need bloodletting, and this lower back pain case has been fixed by acupuncture needling on scar tissues within 3 session. We promise that any of our pain relief treatments will give you immediate results.  We guarantee that if you don’t see any results in your first treatment session, we won’t charge you anything at all.  Call 07 855 7115 NOW or email us NOW to book an appointment with one of our pain expert team in Centre of Balance Hamilton, NZ.

Instantly reduce severe acute sciatic pain/sciatica by acupuncture and acupressure in one treatment, pain reduced from 7/10 down to 0/10. Centre of Balance Hamilton, NZ.


This video has 2 parts.  The first part (from 0 to 12:34) will show you how you can get your family member to instantly reduce your severe acute sciatic pain/sciatica through acupressure at home.  The second part (from 12:34 to 17:23) shows you how Dr Tan Balance Method acupuncture style could completely remove your sciatica.


Here I will tell you all about this case study.  A new patient’s partner called around 7.30am and asked for an appointment as soon as possible for her partner as he was in a lot of pain.  Fortunately, I had a spot at 8am and they are just 10 minute away from where we are at the Dinsdale shopping centre.


The patient walked in at 8am, limping and not even stand straight properly.  I could tell that he was in a lot of pain from his face.  The pain was in his right lower back and buttock and down his leg.  He had a lot of pain in his right groin and right knee.  He was not able to lay on his back or stomach, only able to lay on his left side.  He was not able to sleep at night and was taking strong painkillers without any results.


The pain was involved with all 6 foot meridians (Foot Taiyang Bladder meridian, Foot Yangming Stomach meridian, Foot Shaoyang Gall Bladder meridian, Foot Taiyin Spleen meridian, Foot Shaoyin Kidney meridian, Foot Jueyin Liver meridian).  I got the patient to sit on the chair as he couldn’t lie on his stomach.  Then I used a wooden acupressure tool to press on the left posterior shoulder area, which is the corresponding area used to treat the right buttock.


I learnt single point technique from Master Zhou’s book, who only applies acupressure to fix sciatica as well as many diseases.  I have used only one single acupressure point to fix many cases of sciatica in the past, when the pain only involved 1 or 2 meridians.


After treating the acupressure point on his left shoulder, he felt much less pain immediately.  He was able to lay on his back and stomach then.  Pain was reduced from 7/10 to 2/10 when standing and 4 or 5/10 when lifting up his right leg when laying down.


Severe acute sciatic pain was all gone after Sancha Combo acupuncture and 2 needles on left kidney meridian around ankle.


In this case I did not even needle or massage his right buttock or right lower back or right knee, but actually fixed his right lower back pain, right groin pain and right knee pain.


This following video was taking in the end of the third session. Patient is absolutely happy with the result that we were able to achieve from acupuncture treatment.

If you suffer from sciatic pain in your left buttock (Bladder meridian) or side of buttock (Gall Bladder meridian), you need to find the ashi point (ashi point means the most sensitive point that you feel when you press on it) above the crease of the armpit of the posterior shoulder area.  Once you reach the ashi point, simply press it and hold it until the pain is gone.  Please note that you may find just one ashi point or many ashi points (like in this case) around posterior shoulder area.  Give them all a good press, then I guarantee you should get immediate relief from sciatic pain. 


If you are not too sure how to apply this technique, please watch the following video from 2:07 to 6:05 and from 7:50 to 11:00 again and again until you understand how to apply this technique.


 

I suggest you apply pressure every 2 hours or more often if you suffer from severe sciatica, as well as applying a hot wheat pack along your spine from upper back down to lower back and buttocks as often as you can.  You need to apply a cold pack on the painful area in the first 24 hours after the injury, then heat pack as often as possible after that.  For chronic sciatica, the longer you keep heat pack on those areas that I mentioned, the better. 

 

What can you do if it does not work for you?

This should give you immediate relief if you press on the right points.  If you are not able to get any immediate relief using this technique, I suggest you look for an acupuncturist who practices Dr Tan Balance Method Acupuncture style to help you. In some severe cases, these pressure points would not work at all, therefore you may need  bloodletting or acupuncture treatment or Chinese medicine. 


If you are living in Hamilton, NZ and you suffer from severe acute sciatic pain/sciatica, we will apply acupuncture, acupressure or Unique JiaJi points technique to instantly reduce your sciatic pain in your first visit or we will give you your money back.  We guarantee that if you don’t see any results in your first treatment session, we won’t charge you anything at all.  Call 07 855 7115 NOW or email us NOW to book an appointment.

Acupuncture-Chronic Lower Back Pain Fixed Within 3 Session-Centre of Balance-Hamilton-New Zealand



Daniel Cooper came to me to treat his back on 22/4/14.  He had been suffering from pain since 2010.  Daniel had been looking for a solution to fix his chronic low back pain ever since he injured his low back.  He had tried physiotherapy, chiropractic, and painkillers, but nothing had helped.  Finally he found our website via google search and saw that we offer a 100% money back guarantee for pain relief and decided to give us a try.  I applied acupuncture and fixed his chronic lower back pain within 3 sessions.

 

When I saw him the first time the pain was very sharp.  He was limping due to his back pain, and was hardly able to move side to side.  Due to this pain he was away from work for one year.

 

The pain level was 6-7/10 on the day of the first treatment.  I applied pressure on a few points and his pain was relieved by 50% within 5 minutes.  I inserted needles in his right hand and within 2 minutes he was telling me that he had no back pain at all, his pain level was 0/10.  So his pain had reduced from 6-7/10 to 0/10 in just a few minutes.

 

I gave him a second treatment two days after the first.  I did acupuncture on the same place and he has had no pain since the second treatment.  See what he has to say at his third treatment when he gave a testimonial to Szenan.

  

As you can see in the video above we never insert acupuncture needles on the painful area.  We only insert needles on distal areas and this instantly reduces back pain within a couple of minutes, then finally fixes chronic constant back pain.  I hope this video, “Acupuncture - Chronic Lower Back Pain Fixed Within 3 sessions – Hamilton, New Zealand”, has proved to you that acupuncture is able to fix your chronic back pain.  We promise that any of our pain relief treatments will give you immediate results.  We guarantee that if you don’t see any results in your first treatment session, we won’t charge you anything at all.  Call 07 855 7115 NOW or email us NOW to book an appointment.

Lower back pain could be benefit from bloodletting with acupuncture

             Great TCM method of bloodletting to treat lower back pain.

Cupping bloodletting treat lower back pain in Centre of Balance Hamilton NZ


I want to introduce the great method of bloodletting to instantly relieve lower back pain in this case study. This lower back pain case was very successfully treated with acupuncture in the first 2 sessions by my colleague, but the third acupuncture treatment was not as successful, and we had to look at other treatments.  The patient had suffered from lower back pain for 4 years. His wife walked past our clinic and saw “100% money back guarantee for back pain and sciatica”.  She walked in and straight away booked and paid for an appointment.

 

First treatment 20/08/2014.

The patient had his first back injury four years ago, and has had pain in the lower back on and off since then.  He injured his back a second time two and a half years ago and the pain has been getting worse and worse in the past two years.  The pain is mainly in the right side of the lower back, right side of hip and tail bone.  The pain level is 6/10 at worst, with a burning sensation down into the legs.  The pain is worse when driving, playing golf, standing and changing positions.   He had tried physiotherapy and recently had 14 chiropractor treatments with not much improvement.  He also complained of tightness in the upper back and a bit of soreness in the neck for the last 3 months.   At the first treatment my colleague used acupuncture to balance the Qi and Blood flowing on the lower back through needling the hand according to Dr Tan’s balance acupuncture method.  She applied acupressure to points on the back and instructed the patient to use heat packs on his back at home as much as possible.  The outcome of this first treatment was immediate pain relief.

 

Second treatment 22/08/2014.

The patient reported that the pain came back about 2 hours after the first acupuncture treatment, but not as bad, pain level was 4/10.  My colleague applied the same treatment as last time and as soon as the needles were inserted the patient reported no pain in the lower back.

 

Third treatment 28/08/2014.

The second treatment went very well and he had no pain until this morning when he woke up with lower back pain.  The pain level was 6-7/10 and it was constant, mainly in the right lower back and right hip.

The same treatment as last time was applied but it did not work as well as the last 2 sessions with the patient reporting just a bit of relief.  My colleague called me to have a look at this case.  I reviewed the past 2 treatments, discussed with my colleague and then we decided to apply needles to the ashi point on the left scapula area and it worked perfectly, taking away the pain in the right hip.

 

Unfortunately the patient felt pain back to 6-7/10 again as soon as we took out all the needles. I asked him to lay on his stomach and I re-examined his lower back. I realised there were 2 bruises on the middle and right side of his lower back. I said, “Yes, I know what happened,” and I smiled.  We have been trying to balance the Qi and Blood flowing on the lower back through needling the hand according to Dr Tan’s balance acupuncture method, but the bigger issue was that there was a blockage (bruises) on the back that wouldn’t let the blood flow well in those areas.

I used bloodletting needle pins on those 2 big bruised veins and did cupping on them.  The patient told me he had no pain after the bloodletting from his lower back and he could even bend over easily without any pain to put his socks and shoes back on again, which he could not do that morning.

4th treatment 02/08/2014.

Patient reported there was only a bit of pain in the lower back sometimes, 1/10. He told me that the bloodletting had made a big different.  He could bending over easily, as a driver he could now drives from 430am to 3pm without complaining severe pain in his lower back. He felt some pain and tight in the right knee (which he has not been complaining about this since his first treatment.)


I always learn something from each back pain case. This case showed that constant lower back pain can be very difficult to deal with.  We have to think outside the box when the usual sancha or linggu combination of needles are not working. It is very important to check whether there are any bruised veins on the lower back pain area and weizhong point area.  If there are any big bruised veins, always treat by bloodletting those veins and then treat with acupuncture afterward.
