NEED help with muscular and skeletal aches & pains!

Muscle chart
Everyday life and gravitational pull of the earth around you, can all add to the pain of squeezed discs, causing pain of movement and even trapped nerves giving extreme agony as well as distress.

Your body is an extremely complex and a vastly amazing feat of engineering, the elasticized muscular system has 656 muscles all constantly moving and reacting. Elaborately acting from the messages sent down from our Central Nervous System, via our Cerebellum (known as the small brain) channeled from our Cerebrum (our main brain area), asking for seemingly thoughtless reactions for our gracious and elegant movements.
Even to make the slightest movement, encompasses a vast control of pulley actions (muscles can't push) .
So like all vehicles of daily life, we all need to make sure we are well oiled, full of fuel and all our  moving parts are fully working and not rusted up and grinding or straining!
A bit like a personal M.O.T !
Keep all your muscles (656), bones (206) and posture alignment all in good working order.......

Dry Needling is another aspect for needle use, which is often used in Sports Therapy to try to relax a muscle & can also aid in pain management. It is more of a modern form of needling used for musculoskeletal ailments. This method can be used along with other Sports therapies such as massage and stretching to elongate a tight band of muscle, by needling in to the Trigger point, which is often where the problem is originating from.

The Ancient Chinese Meridians points can also be used, it is painless, the needles are hardly felt as a guide tube is used which sheilds any nerve sensations. The Chinese have used these methods for many thousands of years. The needle points have been found to run along side the known anatomical nerve endings, this is ideal for inducing a relaxing state of mind & promoting wellbeing.

Touch for Health, Kinesiology

In the late 1960’s a Californian Chiropractor John Thie, a member of the pioneering team of applied kinesiologists founded these techniques. 

The term “kinesiology“, sometimes described as the science of human movement took on the meaning of the science of muscle testing with the focus on the balancing the potential of the person. This method also re-energies the chinese meridian system of the body to release blockages in the chi or flowing energy around the body.
