How Can I be Free From Pain?

The Benefits

Recovery from injury and conditions or disorders requires patience and time. That was an observation that I quickly made when I was working in a rehabilitation institute in Florence, Italy in the 1990s. But a long slow healing process which requires a considerable amount of prescribed rest is problematic for many patients who enjoy an active life in sport or who are always on the move for their job.

I realised why healing often takes so much time during my subsequent study of Traditional Chinese Medicine which taught me to treat the body as a whole, not just the injured area. When an area of our body is suffering it is generally the case that it is being affected by a totally different part of the body which needs attention in order to resolve the problem. Therefore, simply treating the part which ‘hurts’ is only seeing the tip of the iceberg and not resolving the problem at its roots. The result could be a lengthy treatment period with limited success.

I will treat the root of your problem by combining techniques from Western Massophysiotherapy and Traditional Chinese Medicine. You will not only see a solution to your initial problem but you will also benefit from a whole sense of wellbeing, both physically, in terms of having more energy and less pain, and emotionally, feeling calmer and happier.

The Components of TCM


TCM involves the application of many different treatments like using very fine needles  (acupuncture) or Chinese medical massage (Tuina) warming certain parts of the body or moxibustion, using glass or bamboo jars or cupping and  scraping the body surface gently (Guasha) taking herbalremedies and finally breathing exercises.

Acupuncture Therapy

Acupuncture is one of the main forms of treatment in traditional Chinese Medicine. It involves the use of sharp, thin needles ....

Therapeutic Massage (Tui na)

Tui Na treats chronic pain, especially that caused by muscle-skeletal conditions and injuries.

Cupping Therapy

Cupping involves placing glass, bamboo or plastic jars on the skin and creating a vacuum by suctioning out the air.

Plum Blossom Needle Therapy

It is very effective for chronic aching and muscle and joint pain. It can be a valid treatment for post-stroke paralysis, cerebral palsy and hair loss.


Moxibustion is a form of heat therapy in which dried plant materials called "moxa" are burned on or very near the surface of the skin.

Gua Sha (Scraping)

Gua Sha (Scraping) is an Asian treatment useful for treating pain and many other chronic diseases.

Qi Kung or Breathing Exercises

It has been said that the way you breathe will have a huge impact on how you feel. It might even have a major impact on your overall health.

“I have been suffering from back pain most of my life , it has been very bad over the last 18 months. I have seen my GP, NHS, physiotherapist, chiropractor, and none of them were able to help. The only thing I had to help with the pain was very strong pain killer which side effects were causing me other health issues. Within two sessions of seeing Reza, I was able to stop taking pain killers and be pain free and we are now on a program to help me with pain free for good. I don’t believe anyone else can do what Reza can do. Thank you Reza, I don’t know what I would have done without your help.”

“I am very happy with the massage. Reza is very skilled and pleasant. I highly recommend Reza and will be looking forward to my next session. Thank you ”


“Absolutely fantastic, Reza was very professional and friendly. He is approachable and makes you feel at ease straight away. Reza worked out areas of tension that most of the therapists can’t or don’t even know about. I was extremely happy and am grateful that I have met him and feel like a new person. Thank you Reza”


“Absolutely amazing, such a caring gentleman and very knowledgable. Thank you ”

“Excellent therapist and very skilled.”


“I went to Reza as I was suffering a lot of stress and anxiety due to my recent miscarriage. Reza's hands are like magic, the needles did not hurt me one bit. I was very calm and happy after my first session itself. He is very knowledgeable in his field and his guidance in general is very useful. I am looking forward to more sessions with Reza to heal myself.”

“I would just like to say how pleased I am about the treatment and service I have received from the Reza Asal Clinic. From day one I was told exactly what was wrong with me and what treatment I needed. I was in so much pain in my leg that I was limping badly and needed a walking stick for support. Within days after my treatment I was able to walk with very little pain and threw away the stick. Over the coming sessions Reza used different techniques to get rid of any residual pain and I can now do things I was unable to do before my treatment. Reza is very knowledgeable and confident in his treatment and I would recommend anyone struggling with any type of pain to seek his help as I am sure you will be very happy you did.”

“I had a severe back pain condition which made me anxious and tired as well. When I saw Reza he explained very patiently all about my pain and worked for an hour on me. At the end of the session, I felt my back was lighter and more flexible and felt less stiff. It seemed too good to be real, but after I finished the therapy cycle I had only a bad memory of my pain, I have returned to my normal life.”

Chiara Giovannini

“I have been seeing Reza for over nine years now and have been very pleased with the treatment I have received. I have had various problems starting with a fall, when I knocked my shoulder out. In addition to joint, neck and a back problem, Reza has been treating my chest and sinus problems too. Over the years his treatment has always helped to restore my general health and well-being. Noticeable changes in energy levels after his treatments have been amazing. I can’t recommend Reza enough. IT WORKS!”
