It’s a common condition…but don’t be one of many who suffer from it!

Plantar Fasciitis is a painful condition at the sole of the foot where the plantar fascia attaches at the heel and travels towards the toes.

It is very common but living with this pain is not necessary as there is much we can do here at Thrive to help.


Expert therapies to decrease inflammation, and improve function

Physical therapy (Tui Na massage) to the affected area but also to the calf muscle and even hamstrings is very effective.

Acupuncture, stretching exercises and if necessary, ice/heat treatment can all be used also.

The alignment of your foot, ankle and knee must be corrected with prescribed exercises (based on Eastern Body Movement), which we can advise you on.


What if I’ve developed a bone spur…is surgery an option?

Bone spurs can form as a result of a chronic condition, but it is unlikely that the bone spur is responsible for your pain (only 1 in 10 people with plantar fasciitis have bone spurs).

Surgery is an option; although you must try all non-surgical options first, remember the pain will be coming from injury and chronic inflammation to the soft tissue in the foot and shortened and tight muscles in the calves.

“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
