Jan Henriksson - JH Physio & Acupuncture Services
JH Physio & Acupuncture Services
In 1987 I graduated as a Physiotherapist from Bodens Medical School in Northern Sweden, which means I have 30 years experience of treatment in the musculoskeletal area.
Following graduation my first job was in a medical centre in a small town in mid Sweden. I built up the service from scratch to a very busy outpatient department, which eventually had 4 staff employed.
In 1987 after graduating as a Physiotherapist, I attended my first acupuncture course and have never looked back. In 2000 I finished my post graduate diploma in acupuncture after 2 years of studying.
In 1990 I moved to England and have worked in various settings including NHS, Private hospitals, Navy hospitals as well as private clinics and in Saudi Arabia.
Problems I treat with acupuncture include anything from musculoskeletal pain conditions to female problems such as period pain, menopausal problems and much more.
Hay fever, chronic headaches and sinusitis also respond very well to acupuncture. Some people have been symptom free for many years.
I have also trained in Osteopathic techniques with Professor Laurie Hartman, as well as other manual therapies. These techniques are often combined with acupuncture to increase the speed of healing and facilitate return to work and/or leisure activity.
Ergonomics is the science of the way we work, how we sit, how the workstation is set up, just basically how we are positioned when we are at work and many times with leisure actives like computer games.
I have trained in ergonomics because many of my patients present with the problems related to prolonged use of computers (and computer games), and I am therefore able to give advice regarding correct set ups and sitting positions.
With these skills I have helped to relieve pain and symptoms of chronic pain, work related symptoms as well as sports related injuries for a vast number of my patients.
