Back Pain & Tension

 

Back Pain & Tension 

Back pain is a common problem often triggered by everyday activities, at work, in the home or during exercise. Bending, heavy lifting, twisting, bad posture or long periods of sitting can all lead to real discomfort. Even stress can pay a part in back pain .

Longer term, chronic back pain is caused by more complex issues such as a slipped disc, muscular-skeletal problems, sciatica or whiplash. Condition such as these can greatly benefit from certain complementary therapies. Pilates helps build core body strength and can improve posture. Deep tissue massage can help muscle pain, while acupuncture and physiotherapy address deeper seated issues.

Check out our range of therapies below which may give great relief to back pain and act as a preventative measure for the future.

Please call our Reception team on 01603 514195, who can arrange a call back from a qualified practitioner if you need more advice.

Rebecca Geanty Lic.Ac. BSc (Hons) MBAcC
 

treat’s founder and proprietor Rebecca works as a registered Traditional Acupuncturist, specialising in natural fertility for men and women. With over six years experience running her own practice and a BsC (Hons) from the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine (CICM) she has helped countless patients with a variety of mental, emotional and physical conditions.

In 2010 Rebecca created Norwich Acupuncture Rooms at the Orange Grove Clinic as a way of making acupuncture more accessible and affordable to a wide range of people. In China acupuncture is a very common practice and recommended weekly to begin with for effective treatment. Rebecca’s goal was to replicate this in the Western world with the multi-bed setting to allow patients the option of weekly treatment at a more affordable price.

A year later Rebecca also set up the Acupuncture Childbirth Team for East Anglia (ACT), which acts as an acupuncture network for other practitioners to share and learn information on natural birth techniques and pregnancy-related complaints.

Rebecca’s latest passion is treat – a unique holistic clinic where the practitioners all strive to work together for the people of Norwich; combining their skills and knowledge in providing one-to-one care and group sessions/workshops, which empower and educate people to reach a state of wellbeing and contentment. Norwich Acupuncture Rooms is now an integral part of treat.
