These are some of the most common reasons for people seeking acupuncture and with good reason. Acupuncture offers a pain free and relaxing way to get better and to reduce pain. Acupuncture has been shown to increase our own pain relief hormones, there are studies using MRI scans which show different areas of the brain are being stimulated while acupuncture needles are applied. If your injury is chronic, like arthritis, it will not go away as the damage to the bones is permanent. However acupuncture can improve mobility, remove swelling and relieve contraction, all of this without any side effects. I expect to see improvement very quickly, usually within 2 to 3 treatments.
I personally will always attribute Julia's treatment to be the predominant factor in my extended period of remission from Crohn's disease. Julia is both a trusted friend and therapist and I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking an alternative therapy.
My aches and pains in ankles, knees, hips and lower back disappear and my energy levels are given a very good boost too! It is 45 minutes or so of relaxation in a busy schedule. She keeps up to date with modern acupuncture techniques and has recently returned from a trip to China to experience these new techniques first hand. I cannot recommend Julia highly enough
I consider myself very fortunate to have found Julia's Acupuncture Practice 2 years ago, when I decided to try acupuncture for back problems. After a few treatments the problems were solved. Since I have every confidence in Julia's ability, each treatment is a very relaxing and worthwhile experience.
