Leanne Coombes Testimonial - January 16th 2020
At BlueWhite Health in Kamloops, our mission is to provide comprehensive care to all of our patients. Our practitioners provide Acupunture, Tui-na Massage, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Reflexology, Auricular points and cupping services. People from all walks of life can benefit from our services, including athletes recovering from many types of injuries.
Leanne Coombs is one of the athletes we’ve had the pleasure of introducing to our services. An avid runner, she came to see us following a hip injury she received during intensive training. Leanne received Acupoint Injection and massage therapy, both covered by her extended health benefits.
“After my first treatment of Acupoint Injection I had immediate relief and I’m able to continue my training and actually increase it as well as eliminate all other medical treatments,” explained Leanne.
Following treatment, Leanne jumped back into training harder than ever and shortly thereafter completed two half marathons. With Acupoint Injection and massage therapy, she was able to leave her injury in the dust and get back to pursuing her passion for running.
We at BlueWhite Health invite other athletes who are looking for alternative treatment options to help them heal from their injuries to seek us out. Do some research and find out if your extended health covers these types of treatments. Leanne’s did. With just a little research, you could save yourself from a lifetime of pain and discomfort.
One of the services that provided Leanne with relief and healing is Acupoint Injection, Traditional Chinese Acupuncture that is delivered via Western medical methods. Compared with traditional injections, Acupoint Injection Therapy is associated with minimal discomfort and is quick and easy. Many patients, Leanne included, will notice a positive response to their pain levels shortly after treatment. In British Columbia, Acupoint Injection can only be performed by certified Doctors, Naturopaths, and Registered Acupuncurists with Injection certification.
Tui-na Massage in another service we provide at BlueWhite Health that can be very beneficial in recovering from sports injuries. Unlike classic massage therapy, which is mainly used for relaxation, Tui-na Massage is a therapeutic treatment. The technique is helpful in reducing pain in the neck, shoulders, hips, back, arms, thighs, legs, and ankles. In modern China, many hospitals include Tui-na as a standard aspect of treatment, with specializations for different areas of concern, including orthopaedics, rehabilitation and sports injury.
