This year Acupuncture Awareness Week (AAW) runs from March 3rd – 8th. The focus nationwide is on back pain and support comes from the dancer Camilla on BBC’s ‘Strictly’ – she uses acupuncture for her own back pain.
NICE have recently recommended that acupuncture be made available on the NHS for chronic lower back pain, however it is still currently difficult to obtain a referral for NHS acupuncture in Norfolk.
To celebrate AAW 2014 I am running a special pain clinic for lower back pain on Thursday 6th March. This is suitable for people who would like to try acupuncture before committing to a full course of acupuncture or speaking to their GP about options on the NHS.
- Cost – £10 per acupuncture session
- Must be suffering with lower back pain – in the small of the back, sacrum, coccyx and buttocks.
- Must be aged between 18-79.
- Must not have had any other form of physical treatment (physiotherapy / osteopathy for example) 48 hours prior to acupuncture
Please book your slot by calling clinic reception on 01603 665173. Clinic runs from The Complementary Health Care Clinic, 34 Exchange St, NR2 1AX.
