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.
Is Acupuncture Safe?
Acupuncture is a very safe procedure when carried out by fully qualified professionals. Your Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists (AACP) physiotherapist is qualified to deliver this therapy and has undergone a recognised accredited training course in acupuncture.
The needles used by your physiotherapist are single-use, sterile and disposable.
AACP have strict hygiene guidelines that they must adhere to, and in order to stay on the membership register they are required to complete approved acupuncture update courses.
