With persistent and consistent acupuncture treatment for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, I have found that Japanese acupuncture is very effective in resolving this medical condition.

carpal tunnel syndromeCarpal tunnel syndrome is an insidious condition that is very difficult to heal, but I have found in my 30 years of acupuncture practice that even advanced conditions can be resolved.

One particular situation comes to mind, an outstanding case involving an artist whose career and family income were threatened by carpal tunnel syndrome. His family’s welfare and his ability to generate income for his family were very much at stake.

He was an Aboriginal painter and he used the “dot painting” technique to create his works of art. From doing this painting process in a repetitive manner over many years, he had developed carpal tunnel syndrome and was in enormous pain and just totally unable to paint. This meant that he had no income for himself and his family – his lovely wife and two children.

It was imperative to be able to resolve this situation for this artist. I’m happy to say that we did work effectively using Japanese acupuncture but it was not easy work as the condition was firmly entrenched through many years of repetitive small motor manipulation. It took 12, maybe even 14, treatments, but the bottom line was that after two and half months of acupuncture treatment, we got him back painting again (and thus restored his livelihood).

He still remains quite a good friend of mine and has gifted me two amazing paintings as a way of saying thank you for the help we were able to provide and, to this date, he is still very active in painting and has had no relapses whatever with the carpal tunnel syndrome.

Each person presents quite differently with this condition and in the very extreme cases it does require surgery. However, I urge anyone with this condition, before going down the surgical path, to exhaust all other possibilities because once the surgery is undergone, there is no turning back from the repercussions.
