Acupuncture

Dating back 3000 years, acupuncture is used in Chinese medicine to ease acute and persistent problems. In Western medicine it is believed to cause nerves to release endorphins, a natural pain killer.

The process is relatively painless, however there may be temporary aching, heaviness or numbness. All needles are made of sterilised stainless steel and used only once.

Sports injuries

Your osteopath will discuss previous injuries, work to find the cause of the problem and advise you on how to prevent injury in the long term. We have a number of methods to improve muscle and joint function, depending on the severity, including:
  • Therabands
  • Dumbell and Swiss ball exercises
