What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is one of the many skills used within physiotherapy as part of an integrated approach to the management of pain and inflammation. Physiotherapists base their treatments on scientific research and clinical evidence that states Acupuncture can reduce pain by stimulating the release of natural pain-relieving chemicals such as endorphins, melatonin (which promotes sleep) and serotonin (to promote well-being) through application of a thin needle.

Acupuncture increases blood flow to the treated area, promoting your natural healing response. The chemicals released further assist the body's healing processes resulting in quicker rehabilitation and reduction of pain.

 

Quick Explanation of Traditional Chinese Acupuncture!

Acupuncture forms part of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). This holistic concept focuses on improving ill health through balancing the body’s energy (Qi, pronounced chee). Qi is described in terms of Yin energy – quiet and calm and Yang energy –vigorous and exciting. It is believed that by stimulating certain Acupuncture points on the body will help restore the in-balance of the Yin and Yang energies during illness/pain.
