After three years of treating patients, the Office Worker Persona is one that I am starting to see more frequently since the pandemic.
How Pure Health Clinic can help relieve your pain
As many of you may have already experienced by visiting me at Pure Health, I use these three main methods of treatment to help reduce your physical and emotional pain.
Acupuncture helps heal emotional pain by restoring balance within your body's natural energy flow. This flow nourishes the body and allows it to function smoothly and efficiently.
Cupping helps heal physical pain by loosening soft tissue and connective tissue, scarring and increasing circulation.
And Acu-Cupping is something I developed so you can receive the emotional and physical pain release in one treatment. Acu-Cupping sessions tend to be more effective so the importance of drinking water and relaxation after the treatment is vital.
Some physical and emotional pain symptoms that these treatments are excellent are relieving are:
Neck Tension, Hip Tightness, Back Pain, Headaches
Stress Release, Anxiety/Depression Support, Digestive Support
3 ways you can help yourself Relieve Pain caused by living the Office Worker Persona
Acupressure points are an excellent way to relieve headaches and tension that you can do while at your desk.
