RSI, Carpel Tunnel, Tennis Elbow

RSI, Carpel Tunnel, Tennis Elbow
If you're on this page you are probably suffering with a Repetitive Strain Injury - sorry to hear that!  From personal experience of having Tennis Elbow (and treated it successfully) myself I can empathize with how debilitating & painful these are.  If you're all about having natural treatment I can recommend Acupuncture to you.
For these conditions i utilize;
  • Tendon Stretching (like myofascial release) coupled with Acupuncture.  
  • Electro Acupuncture
  • Take home stretching & rehab exercises within scope.
With a Repetitive Strain, tension has build up in tendons & tissues which requires releasing.  Acupuncture & tendon stretching prompts the body to respond & restoring homeostasis. Recommended for these conditions 1 hr appointment initially required, follow up sessions likely 45 mins.
