Pain, mi­graine? Try acupunc­ture

Central Leader - - HEALTH& WELL-BEING -

Do you take over-the-counter med­i­ca­tion for pain, sick­ness or mi­graine? Well, here’s a word of ad­vice – don’t. You are only stop­ping the symp­tom, not re­mov­ing the core prob­lem, which could be a se­ri­ous health is­sue. Plus, you are pump­ing your body with chem­i­cal for­mu­la­tions, with po­ten­tially harm­ful side ef­fects.

There is a bet­ter way to deal with pain – acupunc­ture.

‘‘If health is­sues are im­pact­ing the qual­ity of your life and your work, or your cur­rent med­i­ca­tion is not im­prov­ing your con­di­tion, then don’t worry, we will help,’’ Dr Ben Yung-pin Lian says.

Ben, who is the direc­tor at Merid­ian Acupunc­ture Health Cen­tre in Mt Welling­ton, of­fers ef­fec­tive and af­ford­able al­ter­na­tive so­lu­tions that could have you once again in good health. He is a qual­i­fied med­i­cal doc­tor and tra­di­tion­ally trained acupunc­tur­ist who bridges the east and west, of­fer­ing the best of both streams of medicine.

Ben’s ACC-ac­cred­ited clinic has treated pa­tients suf­fer­ing from var­i­ous symp­toms as­so­ci­ated with a raft of med­i­cal is­sues, in­clud­ing in­juries such as pains, burns and ten­dini­tis, in­ter­nal disor­ders like pe­riod pain, mi­graines, di­a­betes and high or low blood pres­sure, emo­tional disor­ders such as anx­i­ety or de­pres­sion and en­vi­ron­ment-re­lated prob­lems such as asthma and al­ler­gies.

Acupunc­ture can also be em­ployed to as­sist weight loss, stop smok­ing and break drug or al­co­hol de­pen­den­cies. The most com­mon ef­fects of acupunc­ture are bet­ter sleep, more en­ergy, men­tal clar­ity, bet­ter di­ges­tion and less stress.

Merid­ian Acupunc­ture Health Cen­tre is lo­cated at 156 Waipuna Road East in Mt Welling­ton.

Ap­point­ments are avail­able Mon­day to Satur­day, 9am till 6pm. Phone 527 0383 or 021 188 5566 to book your free con­sul­ta­tion.
