What is Acupuncture?

Where East Meets West

Traditional acupuncture is based on the belief that an energy, or “life force”, flows through the body in channels called meridians. This life force is known as Qi (pronounced “chee”).

Conditions Treated

Acupuncture is used for a range of painful conditions and for short-term relief of back and neck pain. It can help with the management of knee pain caused by osteoarthritis.

However, the evidence on the effectiveness of acupuncture compared with other treatments is unclear.

Short-Term Relief For:

  • Tension type headaches
  • Migraine headaches
  • Chronic low back pain
  • Neck pain or chronic neck pain
  • Temporomandibular (TMD/TMJ) pain -JAW
  • Osteoarthritic knee pain

How Acupuncture Works

We use medical acupuncture following an normal medical exam and diagnosis when you consult with us for treatment. It works by stimulating sensory nerves under the skin and in the muscles.

This results in your body producing natural substances, such as pain-relieving endorphins which also results in pain relief and muscle relaxation.

A course of acupuncture treatment usually creates longer lasting results than when compared to a single treatment.

Traditional acupuncture is based on the belief that an energy, or “life force”, flows through the body in channels called meridians. This life force is known as Qi (pronounced “chee”).

Practitioners who use acupuncture in the traditional way believe that when Qi does not flow freely through the body, this can cause illness. They also believe acupuncture can restore the flow of Qi, and so restore health.


Target the source of tension

Alongside Osteopathic treatment, acupuncture can work well to relieve tension in the neck and shoulders associated with headaches and migraines.

Neck Pain

ease tension and irritability

With the seated workplace being the number one work place in the world it is common to find neck pain with poor posture and nerve pain. 

Back Pain

Ease muscle spasm and pain

Acupuncture is used for the relief of back pain and excellent at relieving muscle spasm and stiffness – especially when you can’t move because of the pain.

Knee Pain

Associated with Osteoarthritis

The evidence suggests that Acupuncture can be used as an adjunct therapy (alongside rehab exercises) in the treatment of knee pain that is caused by arthritis.
