A complementary treatment derived from ancient Chinese medicine. It is based on patterns of energy called Qi (pronounced chi) that flow through the body and are essential for good health and well-being.
When there is a disruption to this flow, it is believed to cause disease. So, the treatment balances the nervous and organ systems, achieved by using fine needles at points on the body to return Qi flow to normal.
A treatment that helps to alleviate pain and can be used to treat various medical conditions such as migraine.
The human body has an incredible ability to self-repair and acupuncture enhances this mechanism. Thereby improving recovery time, which is why its a valuable addition to physiotherapy. Offering an integrated approach to managing acute and chronic pain when used with other treatments, such as manipulation and soft tissue mobilisation.
