Acupuncture has now become an accepted part of Western medicine and is a part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) which was started more than 5000 years ago.

Traditional Chinese Medical Theory believes the vital energy that flows through our bodies does so along specific pathways or channels. Acupuncture is the practice of inserting very fine sterile needles to specific points along these channels to restore imbalances to this flow.

Western Medicine is now also beginning to see how valuable acupuncture can be and as more research is done the science behind it is gradually being revealed. It has been found to be very helpful when myofascial trigger points (tight, knotty, tender points in the muscles which cause pain) are needled.

Acupuncture is a very safe form of treatment and patients often report improvement in symptoms the day they receive treatment. They also often report feeling relaxed and have a sense of well being after their treatment.

If you don’t like needles there is no need to worry! No one who visits the Clinic will be given acupuncture if they do not want it but it is our experience that it can be a very valuable tool for helping to get you better quicker.
