Back Pain & Sciatica

Relieve Back pain with acupuncture

Back pain can affect any area of the back and is often due to an accident or sprain, a sports injury, poor posture and demands of work or home life.  Some of us are more prone to backache on a regular basis. Both acute and chronic back pain responds well to acupuncture, cupping, which enable the muscles to relax thus easing any spasm and the stiffness so that the pain can be resolved quickly and you can return to a normal healthy life.  Back and neck pain due to whiplash are treated very effectively with acupuncture, whip lash can be treated immediately after an accident even when there is still inflammation using mirroring methods such as abdominal, Dr. Tan or Master Tung’s acupuncture. At Dan-Tien we have a range of  & therapies  & techniques that can be used to ensure you get the best results possible.

Stop Sciatica with acupuncture

This is where there is pressure put on the sciatic nerve as a result of inflammation or a structural disturbance of the lower vertibra or disc’s of the spine. This can result in severe and debilitating pain running down either or both legs as far as the toes. Sciatica also responds very well to acupuncture and particularly abdominal acupuncture and you should feel the benefit after the first session, having come in bent over to one side they will leave standing upright and straight. Sciatica usually takes 5-8 sessions to clear and is something that I treat with the utmost respect as it can be persistent and difficult to cure. You should rest and avoid things that aggravate your condition as much as possible.


Instant relief, first time I’ve been able to sit up after rest, back pain gone….able to put on socks and runners with ease, very comforting.

With painfull conditions such as sciatica other pain management technique such as wrist / ankle or ear embedded needles can give huge relief while traditional and abdominal acupuncture get to the root of the problem and stop the pain.

I arrived at Dave’s door one afternoon, on foot of a recommendation, almost bent over double and barely able to walk after hurting my lower back playing tennis that morning. After just one session, I was able to stand up straight and walk almost freely again.
