What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture originated in China where it was used as part of a holistic approach to medicine and was concerned with creating a balance in the body’s energy. Nowadays, the beneficial effects of acupuncture are supported by scientific research and clinical evidence which show that acupuncture can be an effective way to reduce pain and promote general well being. It works by stimulating the brain and spinal cord to produce chemicals. These chemicals, such as endorphins, melatonin and serotonin, can reduce the perception of pain and promote sleep.



What will happen during my acupuncture session?

We can provide therapists who are trained in the use of acupuncture and are members of the Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists. Single use, pre-sterilised disposable needles are used to pierce the skin at the acupuncture point identified by your therapist as being the most beneficial for the treatment of your condition. The needles are left in position for approximately 20 minutes before being removed and discarded.


It is important to stress that acupuncture is but one of several methods which we use to reduce your pain and improve your quality of life. It can be used alongside various physiotherapy techniques to ensure that your condition is properly managed. Before you start a course of treatment, our therapists will discuss with you which methods of treatment are best suited to your condition and an optimal rehabilitation plan can then be agreed.
