Acupuncture is a 2,000 year old medical philosophy, which aims to balance the flow
of energy within the body. It is used to address any imbalances which is the cause
of many physical disorders and conditions of emotional distress. Acupuncture treats
both the symptoms of the illness and it’s underlying cause.
Does it Hurt?
There may well be a sensation when the needle makes contact with the skin, and
again when it enters the muscle which feels like a pinch, but this only lasts
for the first few seconds at initial contact.
*We have five physiotherapists who are
qualified to administer acupuncture and some use this alongside treatment
programmes, dependant upon the individual and the condition.
