Hi all just thought id share with you all the fantastic service and therapy i recieved from Michelle Tan at Ling Shu clinic in Albert Street, Palmerstonn North.
A couple of months ago i ripped my right bicep muscle then a couple of week ends ago while jumping over an eletric fence trying to support myself at the same time (thought i was still 18) pulled the tendons in my right shoulder. Which stuffed my range of motion (flexibility) in my shoulder not to mention the pain I was experiencing everytime i lifted my arm.
BUGGA !!!!!!! there goes my bowls and snooker for the next month or so which wasnt acceptable to me given i needed to be able to play championship bowls in Manawatu end of the April and a couple of snooker tournaments coming up in early May.
So off to my GP i went who filled out the ACC forms and also prescribed diclophenac (Voltaren) to decrease the inflamation, rest and physio therapy.
I knew i needed to quickly get on top of the pain and inflamation sooner rather than later.....do you know the time frame of trying to get an appointment with a physio in Palmerston North?.....over a week......by now I was considering going private and having to pay for treatment out of my own pocket.
Anyhow driving down Albert Street from Featherston St end I spotted the Ling Shu Clinic and decided to go into enquire about costs for treatment. I had never experienced traditional chinese therapy or treatment in the past. This is where I met Michelle Tan (owner/therapist/clinician) I explained what had occured and before you know it I was in her consult room being treated by way of heat from wheat bags, accupuncture, cupping, and deep tissue manipulation. To experience accupuncture for the first time was unbelievable and incredible......the sensation one experiences is....well you have to experience it your self....the cupping also was a new experience.
After treatment that night my shoulder felt even worst but unbeknown to me that is normal post treatment experience.
I woke this morning to experience some minor stiffnes in my shoulder and slight discomfort with little pain. As i started flex my shoulder i noticed a definite improvement in movement and flexibility and as the day progressed DEFINITELY notice a huge imdprovement overrall.
I went for my 2nd session today and already have noticed a vast improvement in my vshoulder and thats no BS.
I have another 6 sessions scheduled for the next few days and if the treatment and outcome is as good as what i have currently experienced then all I can say is.....WOW.....i probably will never bother to use physio therapists again...besides that I would highly recommend using Ling Shu clinic and Michelle Tan wealth and years of experience in traditional chinese therapies/treatment.
The best part of it all besides the treatment is that.....she is ACC accredited....
It is wonderful to meet a health professional who insists on getting you back to flexibility and good health.
Michelle Tan is highly qualified and very approachable.
Acupuncture an Acupressure, massage and Chinese style manipulation are all an important part of her expertise as well as herbal medicines. Michelle fixed me an that is better than surgery. Robin A
I have been seeing Michelle for a couple of years now for my sore back from a old sports injury. I find her massages take away most the pain and allow me to continue without any problems.
I highly recommend Ling Shu Clinic!
