Acupuncture is more than just skin needling.
For athletes, manual workers, and those suffering from chronic or acute pain, acupuncture has proven hugely beneficial. As a therapeutic practice, it is thousands of years old!
Acupuncture is the practice of finding motor points across your body, and stimulating said points with gentle contraction and relaxation.
Many people refer to acupuncture as a ‘muscular reset’. During the procedure, each body point targeted contracts, and then relaxes. In ancient medicine, this was believed to help release energy through open flows across the body.
Acupuncture can help relieve and release bodily tension, reduce pain, and help you relax. It focuses largely on your nervous system.
As a board-certified acupuncturist with more than 20 years’ experience in pain management and sports therapy, we can help you bounce back from injury, straining, and even prepare for physical challenges ahead.
Acupuncture does not have to be frightening. During the process, you will feel very little pain. Most people experience pressure and warmth – and, very shortly after the procedure begins, they start to feel more energized, and at one with their bodies.
Of course, acupuncture works differently for a variety of people. It’s one reason why we make sure to discuss all options with you before you book in for specialist treatments.
Acupuncture helps to release helpful chemicals across your body, via your nerve network and across your muscles. It can help to relieve back pain, elbow strain, cramping, headaches, and even debilitating musculoskeletal problems. In some cases, acupuncture may even help to relieve some neurological or psychological concerns.
As fully licensed practitioners, you can be sure that our acupuncture clinic is fully prepared for each personal booking. We carefully prepare and maintain needles and treatment spaces for each consultation – personalized to your own specific needs.
Whether you are an athlete striving to beat your personal best, or are an active person worried about pain holding you back, acupuncture may be a great source of support.
