Our physiotherapists are members of the Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists (AACP). We use a combination of Western science and traditional Eastern approach to acupuncture to treat and relieve pain for a variety of MSK conditions.
At your first appointment, we will take a detailed medical history and perform an assessment to better understand your condition. This will help us to eliminate any reasons why you may not be able to have the treatment.
You will need to expose the area being treated but we will always maintain your dignity, using towels. You may also wish to wear loose fitting clothing.
Your treatment session will also include advice and education including rehabilitation exercises, if appropriate, to help you gain the most from your treatment.
Most people feel a beneficial effect in the first session but we usually recommend allowing at least three sessions for the treatment to have a lasting effect.
Acupuncture is not painful but you may experience ‘DeQi’ which can be described differently by people such as a warmth, tingling, water flowing or tension feeling.
