The first Irish Health Survey from the Central Statistics Office found that out of all chronic health conditions in Ireland back pain was the most reported.
The majority of us will experience back pain ranging from mid to severe through different stages of our lives. Here at Deep Health Wellness Centre in Celbridge, Co. Kildare we wish to reduce and eliminate that pain using a holistic approach.
The word “holistic” is defined by the Merriam-Webster Dictionary as follows:
“Relating to or concerned with wholes or with complete systems rather than with the analysis of, treatment of, or dissection into parts.”
The whole idea behind holistic treatment aims to heal not just one particular part of the body but adapts a healing approach to connect mind, body and soul. So, if you have back pain, your back will not be the only part treated. After receiving our therapies you will feel enlightened and stress free.
Back pain can come in different forms be that upper, middle and lower back pain symptoms. Here in Kildare you can consider a number of holistic approaches.
Acupressure is one such treatment used at Deep Health Wellness Centre to treat back pain. A method that has been used in China for thousands of years, Acupressure pinpoints specific parts of the body to help relieve muscle tension and circulate blood flow. Benefits can range from reducing the need for medication, enabling your body to heal faster and even reducing wrinkles!
Another such holistic treatment method available in Kildare is a therapeutic form of massage known as Tui Na Massage. Pronounced twee nah, it addresses the same 12 specified pressure points in the body as Acupuncture. As Tui Na targets the body as a whole you get more than you bargained for.
Kinesiology is something we use quite frequently at Deep Health Wellness Centre to provide back pain relief. Through muscle testing we can analyse not just one specific muscle but areas supporting that muscle in order to maintain, heal or enhance function and mobility. Kinesiology has the ability to transform muscle weaknesses into muscle strengths.
