    Acupuncture

    Acupuncture

    Debbie is a member of the AACP - chartered physiotherapists with a special interest in acupuncture- and offers acupuncture using traditional Chinese medicine acupuncture points and also Western trigger point acupuncture alongside other treatment methods for musculoskeletal conditions.

     

    Scientific research and clinical evidence have shown that Acupuncture can reduce pain by stimulating the brain and spinal cord to produce natural pain-relieving chemicals such as endorphins, melatonin (which promotes sleep) and serotonin (to promote well-being), to name but a few. These chemicals assist the body’s healing processes and offer pain relief as a precursor to other treatments such as manual therapy or exercise in order to aid recovery.
