Acupuncture & Dry Needling

Acupuncture is one of the oldest recorded forms of medicine having been used for over 3,000 years in China. Recent research supports the effectiveness of acupuncture in the management of pain, stimulating the brain to produce natural pain relieving chemicals called endorphins.

Within our service, acupuncture can offered as a pain management treatment to aid a patient’s rehabilitation programme. Our therapists will commonly use a combination of Western based acupuncture techniques alongside dry needling. Both techniques have shown to help reduce pain, decrease muscle spasm and improve levels of function and feelings of well being by stimulating the brain to produce natural pain relieving chemicals called endorphins.

Sterile needles are inserted both close to the site of the pain, and also further away, such as in the hands and feet. Research has shown that inserting needles in different areas seems to stimulate different parts of the body’s own pain relieving system. Your therapist may also from time to time during your treatment ‘stimulate’ the needles to produce a sesation at that location commonly referred to as ‘De Qi’
