Acupuncture is an ancient healing technique dating back over 5,000 years. Primarily used in China, it involves inserting fine, sterile needles into the skin at specific points to stimulate energy flow and restore balance.
Research shows that acupuncture is effective in relieving pain, however like other forms of treatment it does not work for everyone. Most people respond best to a course of treatment but there is no set rule regarding the number of sessions you will require.
Each individual will respond in a different way and at a different rate, and the effects are cumulative with pain relief often increasing as treatment progresses. Some people may experience tiredness or feel light headed after acupuncture therefore it is recommended that you do not drive immediately after your first appointment.
The treatment is perfectly safe and our therapists are trained to a high clinical standard with years of experience. They are all members of the AACP - Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists.
