Acupunture and Dry Needling

Acupunture and Dry Needling image

Acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine needles through your skin at various points on your body. Traditional Chinese medicine explains Acupuncture as a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force believed to flow through pathways in your body. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians, Acupuncture practitioners believe that your energy flow will re-balance.

Our experienced Physiotherapists are trained in Acupuncture and will treat within the Western Medicine framework, using Acupuncture alongside other Physiotherapy techniques to relieve pain and reduce muscle tension or even spasm. Contrary to what many might believe, Acupuncture is not painful and people can find it very relaxing. Acupuncture has been shown to be effective for calming and even improving sleep.

Massage is proven to reduce stress, relieve pain and lower blood pressure and heart rate. Our experienced and qualified massage therapist Yumie is an expert in using massage to decrease pain and muscle tension, increase range of movement and enhance athletic performance. Our physiotherapists are trained to diagnose specific joint or muscle problems and then develop a plan to help alleviate the pain and symptoms from injury, and if massage is an appropriate way to treat your injury then this will be provided. Massage can also be used to try prevent injuries from occurring from overuse or strain of certain muscles.

When we talk about Pelvic Health, we are specifically referring to pelvic floor issues which can result in a number of symptoms including continence problems. Like any other muscles, the pelvic floor ones can be strengthened and re-trained, and research shows that Physiotherapy in the form of pelvic floor re-training can improve and resolve incontinence. Melanie Bennet is a specialist area of Women’s and Men's pelvic Health. She is able to develop individualised exercise programmes to help work on the pelvic floor strength and also assist with other problems such as pelvic pain, prolapse and pain associated with pregnancy.
