Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a treatment derived from ancient Chinese medicine. Fine needles are inserted at certain sites in the body for therapeutic or preventative purposes.

How acupuncture works

Western medical acupuncture is the use of acupuncture following a medical diagnosis. It involves stimulating sensory nerves under the skin and in the muscles of the body.

This results in the body producing natural substances, such as pain-relieving endorphins. It's likely that these naturally released substances are responsible for the beneficial effects experienced with acupuncture.

A course of acupuncture usually creates longer lasting pain relief than when a single treatment is used.

 

Acupuncture is also often used to treat Musculoskeletal conditions (joints and soft tissue) and pain conditions, including:

Chronic pain, such as neck and back pain

Sciatica

Muscular spasms

Joint pain

Tension type headaches

Postoperative pain

Acupuncture can be used as a stand alone treatment or combined with manual therapy. A detailed assessment is carried out prior to treatment.
