Acupuncture is available subject to location and acupuncture regulations in each Country. It should be noted treatments on yachts and private jets will normally be restricted to acupressure due to safety considerations and turbulent conditions etc. In France and Monaco Acupressure techniques are used in the place of acupuncture due to local regulations on the practice of work involving needles. For international call outs please check with Sean for availability of acupuncture subject to local regulations.

Acupuncture works by boosting the bodys natural ability to heal itself. This is achieved by placing fine needles into acupoints along meridians in the body in order to increase blood circulation and affect the central nervous system producing endorphins.
“There is evidence that acupuncture influences the production of and distribution of a great many neurotransmitters and neuromodulators, and that this in turn alters the perception of pain.”
-David Eisenberg,M.D.,Clinical Research Fellow at Harvard Medical School.
Acupuncture for Pain:
Pain or musculoskeletal complaints account for seven of the top ten conditions for which individuals use acupuncture. If you are suffering with pain Sean decides on a strategy to enhance endorphin release. Using the microsystems for scalp, auricular and wrist and ankle techniques he uses acupuncture to enhance blood flow and energy to restricted tissues. Combining methods in acupuncture and massage ensures the patient will experience improvements to energy flow and structure. Sean tries to figure out the cause of pain and part of his treatment is always geared towards making sure the pain does not return on a recurring basis. He spots the bad habits patients display in terms of posture and overuse and assists the patient in finding new and more efficient ways to use their body.
Some of the common types of pain Sean will treat with acupuncture include:
1.back and neck pain.
7. Repetitive strain
9. Knee pain
10. Achilles pain
