At her clinics in Leigh-on-Sea and Southend-on-Sea, Essex, Lorna Withers offers acupuncture treatment for people who have a wide range of symptoms. These can be physical, emotional or a mixture of both.
Sometimes their beginnings can be traced back to emotional trauma and at others their basis can be found in a physical blockage within the body’s meridians.
Acupuncture Treatment by Lorna Withers
Areas of special interest include:
Making Babies – whilst we are not allowed to say that Acupuncture can help you to conceive, it can certainly assist in preparing your body for pregnancy.[quote style=”1″]“I started going to see Lorna for acupuncture 14 months ago, having lost my first baby in the very late stages of pregnancy. I was suffering from a range of symptoms, both emotional and physical, and was feeling pretty desperate. The treatment I’ve received throughout has been nothing short of incredible. I noticed a difference immediately, which my close friends and family also picked up on. Lorna’s knowledge, skill, and expertise are fantastic, and she is without doubt one of the most empathetic and genuine listeners I’ve ever met; all of which have made me feel safe, secure and that I can put all my trust in her as a practitioner. Now Lorna is supporting me through another pregnancy, and I have found it a great source of strength during a very anxious time. I truly value those precious hours spent in her cosy, calm, cocoon-like treatment room! Overall, the acupuncture treatment I’ve received from Lorna has had an immensely powerful effect on my physical and emotional wellbeing, and I really don’t know where I’d be without it. It’s no exaggeration to say that it has saved my life!”[/quote]
Women’s Concerns – throughout a woman’s life, her body is at the mercy of the effects of hormones. Acupuncture can help to balance the physical reactions.
Stress and Feeling Overwhelmed – there will not be many people who have not experienced such feelings at some point in their lives and acupuncture can be a calming and relaxing treatment.
Loss of Energy, Feeling Run Down – by helping to balance and improve the various physical pulses, Acupuncture can help to boost energy and raise spirits.
Aches and Pains – Acupuncture has proved so effective in the relief of pain that many soldiers across the American forces have been trained in Battlefield Acupuncture so that they might treat each other if injured in action. Lorna uses this technique to complement her existing strategies for alleviating pain. If you have exhausted the arsenal of Western pharmaceutical medicine, Acupuncture could well provide you with non-pill based relief.[quote style=”1″]Acupuncture for Neck Pain – When I first went to see Lorna, I was very sceptical as to how sticking pins in me could help my neck and shoulder pain. However, it became apparent that a lot of my problems were due to a combination of stress and my caesarean scar – which was nearly 20 years old. It only took two sessions for me to begin to notice the feeling coming back into the area around the scar. Being able to actually feel my lower abdominal muscles helped me to reconnect the top and bottom halves of my body, improving both my posture and balance. This, in turn, helped me to stand properly. Lorna also targeted the areas of the body which are most affected by stress, where I carried a lot of tension and the treatments have really helped. So, there you have it, acupuncture treatment for neck pain and stress – not what I would have expected, but it definitely does work. Highly recommended! [/quote]
