Shiatsu for Joint Pain in Bucks County PA
Joint pain can strike at almost any time of life and almost any part of the body–yet many people do not realize that there are effective, drug-free, natural treatments for this, such as shiatsu.
Most typically, joint pain affects the back, elbows, knees, hips, wrists, and neck and it can be the result of disease, injury, trauma, or surgery.
The discomfort can cause a serious loss of quality of life, hampering normal movement and restricting the ability to join in with activities that others take for granted. This generally affects one’s mood and mental state too.
Qualified and experienced shiatsu practitioners here in Bucks County PA can help reduce the pain, restore motion, and help you to start doing the things you love again.
What type of joint pain do you have?
Joints are where two or more bones meet. Pain in these areas ranges from mild, causing discomfort only when you move the joint, to severe, when the joint is almost unusable.
Over-the-counter painkillers are usually adequate to deal with minor joint pain, but more serious pain requires stronger medications or injections, many of which have undesirable side effects.
The most common types of joint pain are:
- Back Pain
- Elbow Pain (and Tennis Elbow)
- Hip Pain
- Neck Pain
- Knee Pain
- Shoulder Pain
- Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome (TMJ)
Shiatsu and joint pain relief
When stress builds up, it can create ‘blockages’ in the body that stop the flow of energy and may lead to sickness and disease.
It can also delay the recovery of the body, meaning that acute joint pain can turn into a chronic condition, in itself leading to other health problems.
Rather than treat the symptoms, or simply block out the pain with medicine, shiatsu treats the root causes of the pain and helps restore the power of the body to heal itself.
When physical pressure is applied to selective points during shiatsu, it clears the blockages in the energy meridians, restoring energy flow throughout the body, and helping to revive emotional, mental and physical wellbeing.
At the Cryo Spa Natural Healing Center, we often combine shiatsu with other eastern and western approaches such as Thai bodywork, trigger points therapy, and meditation.
In combination these therapies not only treat the pain, but provide you with valuable insights into your own body, and how to achieve the wellness you are looking for.
How can you be sure it works?
Shiatsu has become a critical part of many patients’ programs for joint pain:
“My shoulders were giving me a lot of problems plus my mood is not always that sunny. Every treatment with Lucy brings a nice balance to my mood. My shoulders evened out and do not bother me as much anymore. Lucy also suggested exercises for my shoulders – these exercises in conjunction with treatment helped me a lot. Now I feel very good mentally and physically.”
