What is Lymphatic Massage?

Lymphoedema is a condition that mainly affects the limbs though it can also affect other areas of the body. This can be caused by cancer treatment such as surgery and radiotherapy to the lymph nodes.  This condition can also be due a congenital problem of the lymphatics, which can be a very debilitating condition, if not managed and treated correctly. 

Your first initial appointment will be to fully assess the extent of the problem and then discuss treatments planned. Manual lymphatic drainage is a 40 minute touch therapy treatment in order to stimulate and re direct lymphatic flow. The aim of the treatment  is to encourage the lymphatic system to maintain this, over a period of time.

How Can It Help Me?
Acupuncture is used to treat a wide range of problems such as:

  • Most types of chronic pain, including neck and back pain, pain from arthritis and from sports injuries
  • Nerve pain including trigeminal neuralgia, trapped nerves and sciatica
  • Chronic muscle strains and plantar fasciitis
  • Migraines, chronic headaches and sinusitis
  • Anxiety, stress and depression
  • Bowel and digestive problems
  • Tiredness and chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Menstrual and menopausal symptoms and infertility
  • Bladder problems and irritability
  • Hay fever, allergies and rhinitis
  • Nausea and vomiting following operations
  • Addiction problems – auricular acupuncture (putting needles into the ear) is often used for addictions including alcohol, smoking and binge eating
  • Acupuncture is also used during pregnancy for back pain, morning sickness and pain relief during childbirth.
Lymphatic Massage Treatment

Most people’s experience of needles is usually limited to injections and blood tests, so many feel uneasy about the concept of acupuncture.

Many patients ask if acupuncture will hurt them. In fact, acupuncture needles are much finer than conventional medical needles, so as they are inserted into the skin the feeling is more like a tingling or a dull ache rather than the sharp bee-sting sensation of an injection.

Our acupuncture practitioners insert needles either for a second or two, or they may leave them in place for 30 minutes or more, depending on the effect needed. You may feel a heaviness in your arms and legs or you may just experience a pleasant relaxation during your treatment.

The benefits of acupuncture frequently include more than just relief from a particular condition. Many people find that it can also lead to increased energy levels, better appetite and sleep, as well as an enhanced sense of overall wellbeing.

What To Expect

At your first appointment your acupuncturist will ask you about your symptoms and your medical history, plus any medication you take. A traditional acupuncturist will feel your pulse on both wrists and examine your tongue.

Please wear loose, comfortable clothing to allow your acupuncturist to access your acupuncture points – there are over 500 of these on the body and they may be located far away from the pain or other symptom. For example, although you may seek treatment for headaches, needles may be inserted into your foot or hand during your treatment.

Your practitioner will insert fine needles into your skin at specific places, called acupuncture points. The needles may be moved, manipulated or stimulated electrically and heat may be used by burning a herb called moxa. Acupuncture points may also be stimulated by massage.

The number of treatments you need will depend on your condition. However, you can usually expect to notice improvements within five or six sessions.

Please be reassured that at the Good Health Centre our trained practitioners always use sterile, disposable needles.

Our Practitioners

The British Acupuncture Council (BAcC) represents professional acupuncturists who have an extensive training in acupuncture and the biomedical sciences appropriate to the practice of this therapy.

BAcCmembers practise a recognised and traditional style of diagnosis and treatment therapy. This has been developed and refined over 2,000 years and provides patients with an holistic approach to maintaining health and managing illness.

There is no government legislation in the UK covering acupuncture at present. Unfortunately, this means that anyone can currently provide acupuncture treatment without any professional acupuncture training whatsoever.

Our acupuncturists here at the Good Health Centre are all members of BAcC.

Cautions & Care

Research in the British Medical Journal has confirmed that when carried out by a competent practitioner, acupuncture is a very safe therapy. Serious side effects can occur after acupuncture, but the risk has been estimated as less than 1 in every 10,000 treatments.It is important to let your acupuncture therapist know before your treatment if you have any medical problems, including if you have:

  • Fits and faints
  • A pacemaker fitted
  • Heart valve damage
  • Heart or lung disease
  • Cancer
  • Clotting problems
  • Or if you are taking anticoagulants or any other medication including complementary remedies or aspirin.

At the Good Health Centre our trained practitioners always use sterile, disposable needles.

It’s sensible not to plan anything strenuous after your acupuncture treatment because symptoms may sometimes worsen for a short time or you may feel tired and light headed. If you do feel unwell, don’t drive until the drowsiness or dizziness passes.

Occasionally you may feel pain or have a little bleeding or bruising after treatment.

Back Pain

If you have back pain, whether new or long-term, you know how it can interfere with your daily life.

Knee Pain

If you have knee pain, you’re not alone. Frequent knee pain affects around one in four adults.

Neck Pain

From a wry neck to arthritis, muscle spasm to a ‘dowager’s hump’, necks are a common source of pain.

Shoulder Pain

Under normal circumstances, the shoulder has the greatest mobility of any of the body’s joints. But when something goes wrong, it can mean pain, limitation and frustration.

Sciatica

Sciatica refers to pain that runs from the low back into the buttock and down the back of the thigh. It may go below the knee and into the foot.

Heel Pain

There are many causes of heel pain. These include plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinosis, heel spurs, and stress fractures.

I had an appointment for my 16 week old baby and for myself with Simon Barron. My baby has been having some feeding issues and trapped wind. Instantly I felt heard, and in safe hands. Simon is so knowledgeable and explained why we might be having these problems & why the baby might be a bit tense in certain areas. It all made sense finally. Simon was gentle and so good with my baby (he really enjoyed it and was all smiles!) Simon taught us exercises and techniques to try at home with the baby and they are already helping him. I’m so grateful we found Simon and will be returning frequently. Don’t fret if you’re wondering about doing this for your baby, it’s 100% worth it!

Simon and Josh are two of the best Osteopaths I’ve seen at Good Health for my sport injuries. They have helped me prepare for Hyrox, treated running and cycling injuries. I’d highly recommend them both!

I have used the Good Health centre over many years. Seb, one of the osteopaths, helps me maintain a quality of life that I wouldn't otherwise enjoy. He is always patient and kind, and treats me with respect. The receptionists are always cheerful, and make one feel welcome. I would highly recommend.
