Acupuncture is an adjunct to physiotherapy for pain relief. Several of our therapists have been trained to use acupuncture, but as this is a speciality please check with us if you specifically want to try this form of treatment.
If during your treatment we decide together that this is the best course to continue then we can easily transfer your care if the therapist you are seeing doesn't do this.
Some of our therapists have trained in TCM and others with dry needling.
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. The more western approach is called dry needling; both can help with pain relief.
Acupuncture can stimulate your body’s pain relieving hormones and ease your pain. Many patients find this relaxing which in turn helps your recovery.
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 as with all our services you will be assessed individually to ensure the right approach for you.
Acupuncture is an ancient healing technique which is now well proven and widely accepted.
Acupuncture is available at all of our clinics, however on occasions clinicians may be unavailable so please check if you book online.
Reviews for Acupuncture
I have used their services for physio, accupunture & sports massage and can highly recommend Impact & their team.
Great experience from start to finish – my first time having acupuncture; I booked on the day as the clinic is near home. Straight in on time having filled in the necessary paperwork, met acupuncturist Sally who was thorough, professional and friendly, putting me completely at ease. The treatment has helped by back pain. Would thoroughly recommend.
