After much thought and a little research, I decided to give acupuncture a chance. Wow what a difference it has made. I’m unsure of the total effect on pain relief but it has had an immense impact on my overall sense of body relaxation and physical and mental well being.
In Autumn 2015 after a little additional neck pain, my acupuncturist massaged my neck following my acupuncture session. She then explained she did also offer acupressure massage. After just three sessions I am wholly committed to this. The effect on my neck and shoulders has been amazing plus the overall whole body experience is really profound. A hour of acupressure massage, possibly alongside acupuncture, could be considered a useful contribution to AS therapeutic treatment options.
