Western Medical Acupuncture is a modern, research-based approach developed from centuries old traditional methods used to provide pain relief.
Acupuncture may be successful by itself or when used alongside osteopathy to compliment osteopathic treatment, or in conjunction with deep tissue massage.
Some of the common conditions that medical acupuncture can be used to treat include:
- Back pain
- Neck and shoulder pain
- Tennis Elbow
- Knee Pain
It can also work for a small number of other conditions including headaches and migraines and post-operative nausea.
To understand whether medical acupuncture could help to provide pain relief or prevent your symptoms from recurring, contact us to arrange an initial assessment with our qualified practitioner of western medical acupuncture Sheena Harper.
During an acupuncture treatment single use, sterile, disposable acupuncture needles are inserted into the patients skin, either locally at the site of pain or elsewhere, such as in the hands or feet. The needles rest in the skin and are left for up to twenty minutes or stimulated by the practitioner before simply being taken out.
