I have worked as a clinical nurse specialist in Pain Management for the past 14 years. I have been able to work closely with patients to enable them to understand their pain and to find appropriate ways to manage pain effectively. Pain management involves looking at the whole person, taking into account the wider ways in which chronic pain can affect a person's life, work and relationships.
I have extensive experience and knowledge in providing acupuncture therapy to patients with a wide range of conditions and have been able to see first-hand how it can ease pain and help to improve movement and function.
Western acupuncture involves inserting very fine needles into specific areas of the body. This action then stimulates the sensory nerves which are under the skin and in the muscles. This action results in the release of the body's own naturally occurring "pain killers" such as endorphins.
I use a combination of Traditional and Western acupuncture points to provide the most effective results. I have found it is important to treat each person holistically, taking into account all aspects of their physical and mental health.

Ben Acupuncture offers Traditional Chinese medicine which includes the use of -
Acupuncture - Acupuncture involves the use of very fine, single use sterile needles to stimulate certain points on the body. These points known as acupuncture points are areas where we can manipulate the bodies Qi as it is closer to the surface. By stimulating this Qi or energy through the inner pathways known as meridians we can release blockages or any disruption there may be to restore the body to balance. this is all done using the bodies own natural healing ability - we are just giving the body a slight nudge in the right direction.
Moxibustion - Moxibustion is the burning of a herb (mugwart) to create heat. This heat can expel cold and warm the meridians leading to a smoother flow of Qi and blood. Moxibustion can be used indirectly by burning it over the skin or by placing a small amount on top of a needle to allow the heat to be taken deep into the body via the needle.
Moxa can also be placed directly on the skin, though a barrier is still in place between the burning moxa and the skin to prevent burning. This method produces a more intense warming sensation.
Auricular Acupuncture - The ear is in itself a microsystem so that the whole body is reflected on the surface of the ear.
Very small needles are used during treatment on certain points of the external ear that reflect certain areas or organs of the body.
The use of small plasters containing a stimuli (usually a seed) can be placed on points so that the client can stimulate the points as desired between treatment sessions as to prolong the treatment effects
Acupressure - If needles are not your thing or you are not quite ready for them then acupressure may be the way to go.
Instead of using needles to penetrate the skin and affect the flow of Qi, we can simply apply pressure to the skin over the desired acupuncture points to release the flow of energy. Acupressure is also beneficial in relieving muscle tension and once the Qi energy is flowing blood circulation is also improved.
Massage - Prior to your acupuncture treatment you may be offered a massage to relieve tension in the soft tissues thus preparing the area for needling. Massage often helps relax the patient, particularly if they are a little nervous about needles, and can also help identify the problem area. Massage is the treatment in which a therapist manipulates muscles and other soft tissues of the body to improve health and well-being. Varieties of massage range from gentle stroking and kneading of muscles and other soft tissues to deeper manual techniques. Massage has been practiced as a healing therapy for centuries in nearly every culture around the world. It helps relieve muscle tension, reduce stress, and evoke feelings of calmness. Although massage affects the body as a whole, it particularly influences the activity of the musculoskeletal, circulatory, lymphatic, and nervous systems.
Cupping - Cupping is the use of glass or plastic cups on the skin and oxygen is removed from the cup using either a flame or a suction pump to create a vacuum. This suction pulls on the skin and superficial muscles invigorating the flow of Qi and blood within the area to promote healing. This procedure also expels pathogens from the body as well as strongly moving stagnant blood that can cause pain within the body. The cups can also be moved while on the surface of the skin to treat a wider area. This Therapy does result in bruising of the skin as the vessels on the surface of the skin expand. These bruises are usually painless and disappear within a few days.
Facial rejuvenation - This is a virtually painless, non-surgical method of reducing the signs of the ageing process. It can help remove wrinkles and tighten up facial muscles. It is a rejuvenating and revitalising process designed to help the face and whole body look and feel younger. This process does require the use of many small needles to be placed on the face along facial creases as well as facial massage.
