Experience the physical and psychological benefits of acupuncture
Acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine stainless steel needles into the skin. Physio at Yours can use acupuncture to treat a wide range of common health problems and to reduce pain. We can combine acupuncture with other physiotherapy treatments such as exercise, manual therapy and relaxation techniques.
Acupuncture stimulates the body to produce its own pain and stress relieving chemicals. It may promote sleep by stimulating the release of melatonin in the body and may encourage a sense of well-being by stimulating the release of serotonin. Acupuncture also stimulates nerve fibres to block out pain signals and helps to reduce the sensitivity of tender points in the body.
I was initially quite nervous about trying acupuncture but neck was so stiff and painful that I was willing to try anything! I felt a difference immediately afterwards and after a few sessions I was back to normal – Definitely worth a try!Siobhan Mullahy
