This interesting opinion paper has been released by the UK's Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists in relation to the use of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine for the treatment of chronic pelvic pain (CPP) in women. Although there was no reliable evidence for the effective treatment of CPP, the paper calls attention to the effectiveness of acupuncture in the treatment of contributing conditions such as dysmenorrhoea and irritable bowel syndrome. There are also some interesting thoughts on the use of sham acupuncture in clinical trials. You can read the full paper online.
Finally found a great place to tech Yoga and Pilates in Arklow. On Main St. next to the Avoca / Wexford Rd round about. The Spotlight Theatre Arts Academy has hard wood floors, excellent lighting and is warm and spacious - just perfect for excercise classes and the best place I have seen in Arklow so far. Tuesday night classes will begin here from October with morning classes (schedule still to be decided) starting from November.
You can join anytime, no experience necessary - Yoga Stretch from 6.45 to 7.45pm (Hatha Yoga) and Yoga Fit 8pm to 9pm. Call me on 086 408 2428 to express interest or email me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
