I have this unsightly lump on my wrist…and it hurts occasionally…!

Ganglion cysts often form on the wrist and they are often harmless and painless, however they can grow fairly large and occasionally hurt or result in less movement in the joint.

The cysts are fluid filled balloons that have emerged from the sheath, or capsule of the tendon.


I’ve heard you can hit them with a heavy book…

It has been known to burst the cyst with a heavy strike, and then the fluid can drain away. However, the integrity of the tendon sheath will still be compromised and it may reappear again. (We don’t advise using a heavy book btw…!)


What do you advise?

The best thing you can do is to regularly perform specific coiling and stretching exercises that will result in the cyst draining naturally. We can advise the best exercises to perform which are based on Eastern Body Movement. Massage on the surrounding tissues can also help. There is a surgical option, which removes the affected tendon sheath, but again, there is no guarantee that the cyst will not grow again.


What do you need to do now?

“I had suffered from back pain (sciatica) for 8 years on and off. During a particularly painful episode I decided to try acupuncture and i really can’t recommend it enough – I had six treatments with Ross over six months ago and I haven’t experienced any back pain since.”

Cinnamen, Shoreditch

“For years I have suffered neck pain, back pain, migraines and felt constantly tired and drained, but after a few sessions of acupuncture with Ross the migraines have finally stopped, and my day to day working life has become so much easier. I highly recommend Ross as a skilled practitioner. He has been a wonderful support also for the emotional stress that is a result of my years of pain.”

Could I please request a bottle of you magical tincture for the bladder. My condition is a 1000x time better but it is just for those occasions when I feel I need a little extra help alleviating any niggling discomfort.


Fixed from physical pain, fixed emotionally, more energy, perspective and the will to get back up and live another day. This may all sound very big but it's what happens... there are other days when I just need a "top up" and that works fantastically too! So what ever you are going through from a bit of tiredness to a life crisis I
