Acupuncture is a tool in traditional Chinese medicine where very fine needles are used on the acupuncture, or energy points located on the meridians all over the body. It requires knowledge of human anatomy and of the Chinese traditional philosophy to effectively manage ailments. Our Physiotherapists combine the traditional acupuncture with a westernised approach, narrowing the focus on your pain or problem.
Acupuncture is effective for the release of neuro-transmitters called endorphins and an increased blood (attracting good nutrients to the area and getting rid of painful waste products). Endorphins bring about pain relief and a sense of well-being. Acupuncture can be effective in treating menstrual problems, muscle tears, pain management, stress management, tension headaches and migraines.
