What is acupuncture?

acupunctureAcupuncture is one of the oldest recorded forms of medicine, having been used in China for over 3,000 years. The traditional Chinese belief is that energy flows freely throughout the body, via channels. When there is a problem, the energy stagnates. Stimulation by acupuncture, at various points, helps to restore the healthy flow of energy in the body.

Modern science has shown that acupuncture stimulates the brain to produce natural pain relieving chemicals (endorphins). These assist the body to heal itself and give pain relief.

Acupuncture is offered by trained physiotherapists. Acupuncture can be used on its own or in combination with physiotherapy to treat a range of musculo-skeletal conditions. Amongst other things, acupuncture may help relieve many conditions such as back pain, shoulder pain & arthritis just to name a few.

There are over 500 acupuncture points on the body. These points are places on your body that are thought to affect the way that your organs and tissues function. Normally 10-12 acupuncture points are used during an acupuncture session.

What does acupuncture involve?

Our treatment will consist of the insertion of fine needles. These are sterile and disposable, ensuring strict hygiene. Acupuncture needles are often inserted into trigger points (sensitive areas in the muscles) to relieve pain and restore movement.

The needle insertion may feel like a mild pinprick and should only give temporary discomfort. The number of needles used will vary and may be left in place for up to 20 minutes or more. It can sometimes take several treatments to produce a noticeable benefit.

Acupuncture needles are often inserted into trigger points (tight sensitive areas in the muscles) to relieve pain and restore movement.

Benefits of Acupuncture Therapy at Contact Physiotherapy?

Our trained physiotherapists use acupuncture to relieve pain and other symptoms. They are in a unique position of being able to combine acupuncture with other treatment methods such as exercises, manipulation and stretching. This combined approach is more likely to lead to successful rehabilitation.

At Contact Physiotherapy, we prioritize your health above all. Our trained therapists provide the best of treatments and friendly staff ensures that you feel at home. We offer the Acupuncture Therapy at nominal rates.
