Pain can be acute (short-term) or chronic (longterm). This clinic attends to both types of pain, however, if it is a new pain you should have the cause of it investigated first by your GP. In a case of acute pain, for example, a joint or ligament injury, a short course of sessions can help you to speed up the recovery process and help with the pain.
This revolutionary hand-held device is licensed for the treatment of pain in the UK and for relaxation purposes in the U.S. By mimicking nerve impulses, the Scenar device stimulates the release of the body’s own natural healing substances such as neuropeptides and growth factors, as well as ‘flagging’ damaged cells for repair so that the body’s healing systems can ‘see’ those cells that previously it couldn’t. Often only a half-hour session at a time is needed, as similar to the thinking of Chinese Medicine, a ‘less is more’ approach is best in this case.
In cases of chronic pain, in particular, it is well-known that a holistic approach is needed for a successful outcome. This is because there are different contributing factors to the condition:
Addressing one’s emotional and mental state is an important aspect of pain modulation- your mindset, beliefs, emotional patterns, all of this makes up your ‘Life State’, and this directly impacts on your experience of pain.
If your body is in a chronic state of inflammation, or you have a lot of stimulants such as caffeine in the diet, this will cause increased levels of pain. Helping you to create an anti-inflammatory diet and lifestyle will calm down your aggravated system.
