Many British Acupuncture Council members will be offering free taster session this Acupuncture Awareness Week 3-10 March
SLOUCHING, eating on your lap and peering at a computer screen - sound familiar? Sedentary lifestyles contribute to millions of adults suffering with back pain, but could the ancient Chinese method of acupuncture be a simple solution to the problem?
A new study shows Britain is risking a back pain epidemic caused by unhealthy habits and sedentary lifestyles. The findings from a study by the British Acupuncture Council to mark 'Acupuncture Awareness Week' (3rd-10th March 2014) show that almost 80 per cent of people suffer with back pain yet admit to behaviours that put their backs under unnecessary strain1.
Mark McMorris won Canada's first medal at Sochi in the first snowboarding events ever at the Winter Olympics. McMorris was still feeling the effects of a broken rib he’d suffered two weeks ago at the X Games. That meant that almost every time he flew off a ramp, bump or rail and hit the ground, pain surged through his back. A steady regime of acupuncture, pool training, gym work and massages got him to a point where only the hard landings hurt.
We are running a prize draw on facebook to coincide with Acupuncture Awareness Week - one lucky winner will receive six treatments from a local British Acupuncture Council member.
