Acupuncture involves stimulating the nervous system by inserting very fine needles into specific points along the body. The Western Medical Acupuncture approach is becoming more widely valued to treat a wide range of common health problems to reduce pain and promote healing. Clinical guidelines recommend a course of ten sessions of acupuncture for persistent, non-specific low back pain.
Acupuncture has also been recognised as effective for treating migraines and tension-type headaches, and improving overall wellbeing by enhancing quality of sleep and mood.
Acupuncture can be combined with other Physiotherapy treatments or can be used independently. We also take referrals for Acupuncture from Pain Management Consultants.
How Does Acupuncture Work?
Scientific research and evidence has demonstrated that Acupuncture can effectively reduce pain by stimulating the brain and spinal cord to produce natural pain- and stress-relieving chemicals. These chemicals promote the body’s healing processes and offer pain relief and inhibition.

How Long Until I See an Improvement in my Condition?
The effects of Acupuncture are typically cumulative and different people respond in different ways and at different rates. Some people may feel an immediate relief of their symptoms whilst others may only see a gradual improvement after a few treatments.
