Frequently asked questions about chronic pain, natural treatments and our services
How do I choose the right practitioner?
This is a great question! There are multiple ways to treat most conditions. In many cases, you can choose based on your personal preferences or by what is covered by your extended health benefits. If you don’t already have a preference, the following can help guide you:
Choose Acupuncture if you
Have tried conventional treatments and the pain hasn't resolved
Have persistent pain in more than one area
Want to compliment other treatments during recovery (acupuncture can make other treatments more effective)
Have heard good things about it and are curious to try (acupuncture can effectively treat many conditions)
Choose massage if you
Have doubts about acupuncture or had a bad experience
Are sensitive to needles or have an above-average pain response
Require techniques that only massage can offer
Need ongoing support after completion of acupuncture
Choose osteopathy if you
Can’t tolerate deep tissue massage or other heavier treatments
Are sensitive to touch
Are sensitive to needles
