Both chronic pain and chronic fatigue syndrome are characterised by an overactive central nervous system. Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine had been proven effective in treating neurological disorders. Electro-acupuncture was found by a recent study to “not only blocks pain by activating endogenous opioids, also stimulate the release of biochemicals which desensitise the sensory receptors for painful stimuli”.
In Chinese Medicine, when the flow of Qi and Blood is constrained or interrupted, pain occurs. The same blockages also retard the flow of energy and nutrient to muscles, joints and internal organs, causing extreme fatigue. In chronic cases, pain and fatigue are not symptoms of underlying conditions, but diseases in their own right with elements of excess and deficiency in the pathogenesis.
At our clinic we take into consideration unregulated emotions and recurrent infection as causative factors to pain and fatigue syndromes. Our holistic approaches achieve sustainable pain relief and energy boost, simultaneously strengthens immunity and treats psycho-emotional complications associated with these chronic debilitating conditions.
