Acupuncture and Dry Needling
Acupuncture is used against a background of sound research and evidence, as a means of reducing pain through production of natural, pain-relieving chemicals. Acupuncture also stimulates nerve fibres to block out pain signals and helps to reduce the sensitivity of tender points in the body. We also utilise it to reach some deeper points we may struggle to reach without the use of needles or particularly tight bands in muscles. These assist the body’s healing process and offer pain relief as a precursor for other manual or exercise therapy.
