Why do you feel pain?


The website eMedicine Health states that "low back pain is second only to the common cold as a cause of lost days at work." 90% of Americans will experience low back pain, 50% will have more than one episode of low back pain, and in "85% of people with low back pain, despite a thorough medical examination, no specific cause of the pain can be identified."

Why is the cause of low back pain in only 15% of cases known? Why does low back pain reoccur in 50% of people? Are these shocking figures accurate for all back pain specialists or only modern Western medicine health care practitioners?

In America, the common methods of treatment for chronic pain - pharmaceuticals, analgesics (pain killers) or surgery - are frequently unsuccessful at completely removing pain. We hear many people complain that their chronic pain continued even after medical treatment. Perhaps the unsuccessful results of mainstream modern medicine are due to a lack of understanding – not recognizing the true cause of the pain.

For over 15 years, I have studied eight highly specialized alternative medicine therapies for pain relief. Each therapy has earned a reputation as a successful alternative treatment for pain relief and pain management. The reported success of these therapies comes from research studies, empirical reports (what real people have reported), and feedback from thousands of happy clients.

My personal success rate for relieving low back pain, even when accompanied by radiating leg pain, tingling, and numbness is around 95%. The majority of my clients with low back pain receive fast, effective pain relief with no reoccurrence.

Each of the pain relief therapies that I have studied offer an in depth understanding of the mechanisms driving your pain - knowledge that is often missing from the education of modern medicine. It is the opinion of many alternative therapy pain specialists that a pain relief therapy will only be successful if the underlying cause of the pain is correctly identified. With the knowledge of eight complimentary pain relief therapies, I have a broad spectrum of education which enables me to understand the causes of pain and their associated symptoms throughout the body.

The Causes of Pain are not a Mystery

The scientific research shows that the cause of 85% of low back pain cannot be correctly identified. This is not because the body is a mystery, but rather because the required understanding of the body is missing in some areas of medicine, alternative medicine and health care. More than fifteen years of training and treating low back and other types of chronic pain and acute pain have clearly shown me that the many causes of pain are known - and that effective therapies have been created for these different causes.

When modern medicine therapies haven't been effective or when surgery is to be avoided and non-invasive treatment desired, then it is necessary to seek the help of an alternative medicine pain specialist with sufficient training and experience.

Pain Relief That Works

There are many types of pain in the body. Low back pain, sciatica, neck pain, and joint pain may be caused by injury or trauma. Some types of low back, hip, neck, shoulder, elbow, or knee pain are due to poor posture or repetitive motion (such golf or typing on a keyboard). Some pain is even caused by internal health conditions - like poor digestion, candida or infection. Lifestyle stress, job stress and family stress have also been shown to cause episodes of acute pain. Pain can be a response to allergies in the environment and seasonal allergies. Even food allergies in our diet can be causing our pain.

For each of these causes of pain, Inner Light Wellness offers a specialized therapy.

Pain Relief Therapy Client Testimonials

  • Words cannot express how good I feel! I am pain free thanks to Margaret Celli and the Dr. Tan Balance Method of acupuncture.

    I spent the months of June and July on a walker and unable to lift my right leg. The cause was severe sciatic-nerve pain along with stress fractures of my right hip. I tried two different chiropractors at least five times each, to no avail. My daughter-in-law suggested acupuncture and after a series of events, I had the good fortune to meet Margaret Celli. I was able to walk pain-free after my 5th treatment.

    Margaret’s dedication to eliminating your pain and ensuring your comfort are of the highest level. Margaret is a loving and caring person with a passion for healing. The Dr. Tan Balance Method of Acupuncture and Margaret Celli are a great combination. Thank the good Lord I found Margaret!

    David C.

  • Sitting in an office chair all day gave me a constant tight neck. For years I dealt with it. However once tension headaches, migraines, and neck pain became a daily event, I needed to seek help. I didn’t want to be on painkillers for the rest of my life, so I decided to try Acupuncture after continually reading about the great results in men’s health magazines.

    The praise was true – acupuncture worked. During my first session with Margaret, my neck pain disappeared. It did come back in a few days, but after a few more treatments, the neck pain did not return between treatments. I decided to keep seeing Margaret on a regular basis for my other health problems. To this day my neck pain, migraines, and tension headaches are a distant memory. Thank you Margaret!

  • I have been going to Inner Light Wellness Acupuncture for several treatments. My first treatment was for my back pain and I must say my recovery was remarkable, Margaret is a real professional, she knows what she is doing. Her pleasant mannerism makes the visit therapeutic and the healing process quick. Margaret is now working with me treating pulmonary fibrosis and rheumatoid arthritis and the treatments are working. I feel much better.

    Maple Glen, Pennsylvania

  • Having had hundreds of massages, body work, adjustments, spa treatments, etc., I can truly say that Margaret is at the top of her profession. She can pinpoint one specific area and help it begin to heal, or put you into the most deeply relaxed state you will ever experience. She has the gift.

Pain Relief Therapy

Pain Relief and Allergies are the focus here at Inner Light Wellness in Downingtown, Chester County, PA.

The list of pain relief therapies is extensive - ranging from specialized techniques such as acupuncture, and Chinese medicine, to advanced techniques in structual soft tissue massage.

The Inner Light Wellness alternative medicine office is located in the Downingtown Professional Plaza, on Lancaster Highway near the Rte 30 bypass in Downingtown, PA - Chester County. Since 1994, we have served the Chester County area and often treated people from surrounding counties and states because of our highly specialized therapies.

Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncture (TCM)

Eliminate the cause of your pain and restore your body to balance. Acupuncture is an integral part of the Chinese Medicine system of health. Chinese Medicine has been developed over 2,000 years and is one the fastest growing alternative medicine treatments because of its reported success and growing body of scientific evidence.

Chinese Medicine understands the body as a interconnected network of channels of energy. When a channel becomes blocked or life force energy is low, the result is an experience of pain and weakness. Sterile, medical-grade acupuncture needles are inserted into specific locations in the body to remove stuck energy and relieve pain.

Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncture is the therapy of choice in China for pain relief - chosen more frequently than modern Western medicine. Acupuncture acts quickly and with no side effects. Because Acupuncture corrects the underlying energy problems causing the pain, your pain can even be eliminated altogether.

Dr Tan's Magic Points Acupuncture

Pain Relief in 20 minutes that lasts. Dr. Tan's Magic Points Acupuncture is a modern style of acupuncture that has its roots in the oldest Chinese medicine texts, the iChing, and modern systems engineering. This unique blend of ancient and modern sciences has created a style of acupuncture that can relieve pain in your first treatment.

Dr Tan's Magic Points Acupuncture is different from traditional TCM Acupuncture - the most common form of acupuncture in America. Dr Richard Tan, founder of this unique style of acupuncture, combined his lifelong study of systems engineering with diverse styles of acupuncture practiced in China to create a style of alternative medicine therapy that removes pain faster and with a minimum number of acupuncture needles. For difficult to treat pain, Dr. Tan's Magic Points Acupuncture works like magic!

Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Technique (NAET)

Relieve pain caused by food allergies, seasonal allergies and environmental allergies. A common source of pain that is often overlooked is the body's response to food. In addition to direct injury or trauma, the foods that we eat and things in our environment can also cause blockage in our acupuncture meridians and energy system. Any time our energy system is blocked the result is pain or discomfort. Overtime this blocked energy can lead to more severe symptoms or disease including seasonal allergies and weakened immunity. By effectively changing how the body responds to certain foods and environmental factors, we remove the associated symptoms of pain and discomfort. By helping the body now, while the symptoms are still mild, we are preventing the occurrence of chronic pain and more severe health problems in the future.

St. John's Neuromuscular Therapy

Pain relief for posture problems. St. John Neuromuscular Therapy is a form of structural massage that addresses the postural causes of your pain. A thorough postural analysis is performed to determine what areas of your body are contributing to your discomfort. Trigger point massage, myofascial release, and stretching are utilized to bring postural balance and alleviate pain.

St. John Neuromuscular Massage Therapy was developed by Paul St. John and relies upon the foundational work of Dr. Janet Travell and Dr. David Simons. Dr. Janet Travell was the first female White House physician and served during the Kennedy and Johnson era. She was appointed her position because of the pain relief she provided John F. Kennedy in 1955 when he suffered from chronic back pain. Dr. Janet Travell devoted her life to the research and treatment of chronic pain relief and trigger points, publishing the definitive manual at the age of 82, after 40 years of experience and research.

I draw on the expertise of Dr. Janet Travell and subsequent myofascial and trigger point experts when treating you for your chronic pain conditions. St John Neuromuscular Therapy is particularly successful for treating back pain, low back pain, shoulder pain, neck pain, and headaches.

Myofascial Release Therapy

Pain Relief for tight muscles and painful knots. Myofascial Release Therapy treats the fascia or connective tissue of the body to remove tights knots (called Trigger Points) and relieve pain. Fascia wraps and infuses every structure of your body including muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones. It is even found beneath and through the skin. Fascia becomes 'glued' due to postural disturbances, aging, injuries, and surgeries. Scar tissue is made of fascia and is formed whenever fascia is torn or disconnected, such as during a surgery or when you injure a tendon or muscle. Even postural distortion creates microscopic tearing in the fascia.

Myofascial Release is the perfect therapy to address the connective tissue aspects of chronic pain due to postural distortion and scar tissue from surgery or injury.

Myoskeletal Alignment Technique (MAT)

Pain relief with stretching and muscle manipulation. Myoskeletal Alignment Technique provides bodywork solutions for chronic pain, motion restricted tissues and joints, and postural distortion. A combination of deep myofascial bodywork and muscle lengthening through active resisted stretching techniques. Myoskeletal Alignment Technique restores pain free motion and postural integrity.

Myoskeletal Alignment Technique is an active, client-participation therapy where resisted stretching is used to mobilize joints. I will be stretching your muscles while you, the client, resist the stretch by actively contracting the stretched muscle. Additionally, you will be asked to move your joints while I apply pressure to key muscle groups contributing to your pain.

Myoskeletal Alignment Technique is an effective technique for shoulder pain, arm pain, hip pain and leg pain.

Structural Balancing

Several pain relief techniques combined into a one effective therapy. Structural Balancing Massage is a combination of several massage therapy techniques that address the root causes of chronic musculoskeletal pain. Structural balancing massage focuses on various components of your body including muscles, fascia (connective tissue), and joints. Consider structural balancing massage therapy if you are experiencing any of the following:

  • Chronic pain
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Injury
  • Poor posture
  • Tingling/Numbness
  • Accidents
  • Scoliosis
  • Scar tissue

Deep Tissue Massage

Get pain relief and relaxation as tight muscles and knots are massaged away. Experience penetrating deep tissue massage and trigger point release for painful muscles, tension, and soreness. An overall massage experience, Deep Tissue Massage focuses on increasing circulation, relaxing muscles, and soothing the nervous system. Great for deep relaxing and stress relief, deep tissue massage will help lessen the severity of your pain.
