What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) that has been practiced for over 2000 years. It is a natural healing system that focuses on improving overall patient well being and health.
The body’s energy or ‘Qi’ (Chi) flows through the organs and tissues of the body via channels known as meridians.
These meridians were mapped out by the ancient Chinese through observation over thousands of years.
The energy meridians of Chinese medicine carry energy around the body from head to foot in a way that’s similar to the circulation of the blood, but more subtle. This circulation of energy is vital to health and well-being.
What is Dry Needling?
Dry needling is an effective technique used by physiotherapists for the treatment of muscular pain and myofascial dysfunction. Tired and overused muscles often contain trigger points, which can be a direct source of pain and movement restriction.
Using our painfree dry needling approach, we aim to relax overactive muscles and restore pain free movement and function.
