Medical acupuncture is a therapy technique which involves fine needles being inserted into the body to encourage healing and pain relief. It directly targets the pathological area rather than working on the meridians like Chinese acupuncture. Benefits include reduced swelling and an improved healing environment for an injury. It is a surprisingly relaxing treatment and a great alternative to sports massage although we use our medical acupuncture alongside soft tissue massage to unlock the best results. Ask one of our practitioners for guidance on your treatment plan.
