acupuncture Acupuncture

This is the insertion of fine needles in to the body at specific points.

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine – in a healthy, normal body energy flows freely resulting in a ‘balance’. When this flow is interrupted by stress or injury for example, this energy (called qi) is affected. Acupuncture uses specific points to restore the balance.

Research over the last 20 years shows how acupuncture works to reduce pain via our nervous system. Stimulating the nerves, which in turn alter chemical release in the muscles and the brain can impact on our pain levels.

Acupuncture in the Clinic is mainly used to treat musculoskeletal pain, including muscle trigger points. Common conditions treated with acupuncture include: Back and Neck Pain, Tennis Elbow, Sports injuries, Headaches and Arthritis.
