Acupuncture is a proven therapy practiced throughout the modern world.
There is sound research and evidence base for the use of acupuncture by physiotherapists. Its foundation is the theory and philosophy of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), an ancient system of natural healing which was also a way of life in China and Japan dating back several thousand years.
Fine hair-like needles are placed in strategic points on the body and will remain in situ for approximately 20 to 30 minutes. Acupuncture is holistic in its approach and addresses the whole person, body and mind, and the problem/concern presented. It can be highly effective in maintaining a balanced state of wellbeing and optimum health by helping the body and mind recover its physiological balance.
