Acupuncture

Activate your own healing

 

What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture is one of the many skills used within physiotherapy as an integrated approach to the management of pain and inflammation and as a means of stimulating the body’s own healing chemicals in order to aid recovery and enhance rehabilitation.

What to expect

Extremely fine needles are inserted into the skin at specific "acupoints." This may relieve pain by releasing endorphins, the body's natural pain-killing chemicals, and by affecting the part of the brain that governs serotonin, a brain chemical involved with mood.  The needles are left in situ for 20 minutes, stimulated twice in that time.
