ELITE ACUPUNCTURE 

Acupuncture is used to treat a wide variety of conditions including pain, headaches, digestive problems, stress/anxiety, women’s health issues, post-surgical recovery, athletic event preparation, insomnia and many more. 
 
Alana has a MSc in Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture having trained in California for five years before opening her practice in the UK. 
Cupping therapy is becoming increasingly popular, especially with professional athletes and celebrities. The cups create a suction and increase blood flow in order to repair the muscles involved. This is a great therapy for competition prep and recovery, and also for general maintenance while training. You may be left with “cupping marks” which look similar to bruises, but they do not hurt and usually disappear within 3-7 days. 
Gua sha has similar effects to cupping but can be done on smaller muscle groups and more pinpointed areas. It also is a great treatment for the common cold. This modality uses gua sha tool (usually a smooth, flat piece of plastic, bone or stone) to “scrape” along muscles or channels. 
 
 
Electro acupuncture is the use of an electric current attached to needles. The feeling is similar to that of a TENS unit: you may feel pulsing, jumping or flexing of the muscle, or a light vibration. This is used to stimulate the needles in order to increase the intensity of the treatment and promote additional healing. All treatments include heat therapy by use of an infrared heat lamp, and a short massage after acupuncture.
