Acupuncture is a scientifically proven method of healing and pain management. An ancient Chinese therapy, acupuncture is supported and enhanced by modern research and practice.
Your Body In Motion physio may use acupuncture in conjunction with other physiotherapy or as an independent therapy. Our team includes qualified and highly experienced acupuncturists, who uphold their level of skill and knowledge with ongoing professional development.
Each of the organs of the body has its own associated channel of energy, called a Meridian. Very fine (one-use/disposable) needles are inserted into points along these Meridians, stimulating the nervous system. This stimulation can have a local healing effect on the injured tissue; can change the experience of pain in the body, and bring the body back to balance and harmony.
Each acupuncture session is about 30-45 minutes in duration, with needles being left in place for 20-25 minutes.
You may find the needles encourage a very deep state of relaxation; some people actually drift off to sleep during their session.
