If appropriate, Acupuncture will sometimes be discussed with you and used by our Chartered Physiotherapists as part of your Physiotherapy treatment. Acupuncture is one of the oldest recorded forms of medicine having been used for over 3000 years in China.
Modern science has shown that acupuncture stimulates the brain to produce natural pain relieving chemicals, endorphins. These assist the body to heal itself and give pain relief.
To compliment their wide range of treatment methods many Chartered Physiotherapists now use acupuncture
- Acupuncture is safe and virtually painless
- Acupuncture works naturally with little or no side effects
- Acupuncture stimulates the body to help itself
- Acupuncture can be used to treat a wide range of conditions
AACP - Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists
The Physiotherapists practising acupuncture at Tavistock Physio Clinics are trained to specific standards which are set by the AACP and have undertaken approved training plus annual update training for acupuncture to provide pain relief.
