Acupuncture and Electro-Acupunture is a widely recognised treatment method for pain sports injuries and musculoskeletal conditions. Both spinal and peripheral symptoms can often be reduced or alleviated by the use of acupuncture in conjunction with Sports Therapy and exercise. Acupuncture can be useful in the treatment of both acute and chronic pain.
Used in Chinese medicine for over two thousand years it works with the body’s natural energy or qi. When this flow of energy is blocked, depleted or weakened it can make us susceptible to illness, aches and pains. Acupuncture re-balances the body’s energy by needling specific acupoints related to a person’s symptoms. The main aim of Acupuncture is to restore the body’s equilibrium which in turn will alleviate the symptoms. Clients often notice an improved sense of well being after treatment.
