Acupuncture at Physio-logical
Acupuncture is a chinese medical treatment in which fine needles are inserted into the skin at certain points on the body. It is used in the management of pain, inflammation and as a means of enhancing the body’s own healing chemicals in order to aid recovery and enhance rehabilitation.
How does it work?
Acupuncture is used by physiotherapists, against a background of sound research and evidence, to produce NATURAL pain relieving chemicals, such as endorphins; melatonin to promote sleep, serotonin to promote wellbeing, to name but a few. These assist the body’s healing process and offer pain relief as a precursor for other manual or exercise therapy.
“Thank you for the first class treatment I received whilst attending your clinic after the car accident I was involved in, especially the acupuncture I received was very beneficial” Mrs B

“Acupuncture has been very beneficial for me. I have Beckers Muscular Dystrophy and began to suffer with lower back pain a few years ago. Natalie at Physio-logical suggested trying acupuncture which I was sceptical about at first but was willing to try anything. Since then I have found it to be the best treatment for pain relief and stiffness. I also find it to be very relaxing and stress free. Would highly recommend this to anyone in pain!” Mr. T
