ACUPUNCTURE

We offer a range of acupuncture approaches:

Orthopaedic Acupuncture

A form of classical acupuncture which focuses on the managment of musculoskeletal problems.  This treatment includes the use of the ' Chinese meridian system' to help the body to heal.

Techniques include needle insertion, needle manipulation, electro-acupunture and Chinese cupping.

This is different from Traditional Chinese Acupuncture as a musculoskeletal screnning is used rather than face, pulse and tongue diagnosis.  If you require systemic Acupunture we can refer you to practitioners in the SE1 area.

Dry Needling (Intra Muscular Stimulation)  

This is a Western approach used to treate musculoskeletal pain, including myofascial pain syndrome.  This approach uses an anotomical basis to treat tight muscle tissue, known as 'knots' or 'trigger points',.

All treatments use very thin sterile single use pins to treat areas enabling relaxation of the nervous and muscular systems which may be over stimulated as a result of injury or imbalance.

This modality has been found beneficial for a range of musculoskeletal problems such as chronic pain, myofascial pain syndrome and muscular pain.

This can be integrated into your treatment if needed and you feel comfortable, your wishes are always respected.  This can also be offered as a stand alone treatment upon request. 

Trevor has attended advanced training with leading authorities in the treatment of myofascial pain including Simeon Niel-Asher and Dr Bob Gerwin (MD).
