From dull aches to difficult muscular pains – there are some problems that massage alone just doesn't cure. That's why we specialise in medical acupuncture or dry needling, a modern adaptation of the ancient Chinese practice of acupuncture.
Medical acupuncture helps problematic muscles to reconnect with the brain and stimulate your body's natural pain killing chemicals. It's particularly effective in treating relentless muscular problems and can be quite relaxing. The needles we use are extremely fine (0.25mm) and may be inserted for anything from a few seconds to several minutes depending on the symptoms of your condition. The sensation varies from person to person – some people feel a warm ache, while others feel nothing at all.
The main difference between medical acupuncture and traditional Chinese acupuncture is that the ancient beliefs of 'yin', 'yang', and the energy 'qi' is substituted for a combined knowledge of physiology and pathology, anatomy, and the common principals of evidence based medicine.
All treatments include acupuncture at no extra cost if preferred and/or requested with time permitting.
