Acupuncture is the procedure of inserting and manipulating needles into various points of the body to relieve pain.
The ancient art of acupuncture
Acupuncture is one of many skills used in physiotherapy as an integrated approach to the management of pain. It also enhances the body’s own healing chemicals in order to aid recovery. Acupuncture involves the insertion of fine needles into specific points along the body’s energy pathways. This is thought to stimulate the body’s natural pain-killing endorphins. Acupuncture is useful for all types of acute and chronic injuries.
