Acupuncture

Acupuncture is an ancient healing technique which is now well proven and widely accepted.

In Physiotherapy treatments, acupuncture can be used in the TCM (traditional chinese medicine) way, and is a simple and safe way to ease pain. Fine, single use, sterile needles are inserted into the skin at precise points depending on your specific problem. This process stimulates your body’s pain relieving hormones and eases your pain. Many patients also find this relaxing which in turn helps recovery.   A western adaption for using accupuncture is to use needles to treat “trigger points” in conjunction with manual therapy techniques for treatment of your condition.

Juliette is a member of the AACP (Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists) and adheres to strict guidelines for safe practice.

The signs and symptoms of your condition will be assessed to determine the best type of treatment. Most people respond best to a course of treatment but you will be assessed individually to ensure the right approach for your needs.

NB all blood donors should ask for a certificate saying that they have received acupuncture from an accredited safe practice acupuncture provider.
