Based on traditional Chinese medicine, some of The Physios have undertaken additional training in the use of acupuncture for pain relief.

Inserting very fine, disposable sterile needles along the body’s energy lines called meridians, traditional acupuncture adheres to the thinking that restoration of the body’s energy (Qi), can stimulate healing and the release of the body’s natural painkillers such as endorphins.

Western medical acupuncture and its more modern derivative, “dry needling” are evidence based, holistic and effective adjuncts to our other physiotherapy skills with some amazing results.
