ABOUT MEDICAL ACUPUNCTURE
Acupuncture stimulates the nerves in skin and muscle. It can have an effect on the pain pathways of both the spinal cord and the brain. This modifies the way pain signals are received.
Modern research also shows that acupuncture can do more than reduce your pain. It can also have a beneficial effect on your health so you may notice an improved sense of wellbeing after treatment.
I make a decision on the number of needles you need at each consultation. Sometimes only two or three are necessary, on other occasions I use more. I also offer an electro-acupuncture technique where a mild electric current is used to enhance the effect of the needles.
