Many of the Physiotherapists at Trinity House Practice have found that acupuncture is an effective complement to their established skills. The Practitioners that provide acupuncture are all members of the Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists (AACP) or the British Medical Acupuncture Society (BMAS).





There are several theories as to how it works but the important thing is that it does work and the side effects are extremely rare.

Research has shown that acupuncture stimulates the brain to produce natural pain relieving chemicals called endorphins. In effect, it stimulates the body's own healing response and ability to gain pain relief which, can in turn, promote normal function.

The process involves stimulation of appropriate acupuncture points usually with needles or massage (acupressure).

Acupuncture is administered as part of a planned physiotherapy treatment programme that may include a range of other treatment techniques such as exercise, manual therapy, heat, and ultrasound. A typical course of treatment for a chronic condition would be dependent on the condition and this would be agreed following an initial assessment.  You can read more about our treatment techniques here.
