Accupuncture

Fully licensed

We are physiotherapists that are also trained in the practice of acupuncture.  We are licensed with Manchester City Council to practice at this clinic and all practitioners are members of the Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists (AACP).

Western Medical Concept

We use the Western Medical Concept (WMC) of acupuncture which also means we have an understanding of traditional Chinese medical approach (TCM).  Acupuncture can be used to treat all sorts of conditions; in fact it is easier to list conditions acupuncture can’t treat.  Predominantly at this clinic we treat musculo-skeletal conditions, including tight and painful muscles whether due to training or injury.  Acupuncture is often used with acute problems to help reduce swelling and stimulate the release of your own natural pain relieving chemicals.  Treatment of osteoarthritic knees and chronic tennis elbow ( lateral epicondylitis) also proves very effective.

Part of holistic therapy

Acupuncture is only form part of your treatment.   You would also be given a home exercise plan and advise and any other hands on treatment you needed. Treatment of osteoarthritic knees and chronic tennis elbow ( lateral epicondylitis) also proves very effective.

Pain in pregnancy

Pain in pregnancy is often difficult to treat with a more hands approach but at this clinic we are able to treat a pregnant women with acupuncture to help relieve pain.  We would also combine this with advise and exercises.  Many patients with pelvic girdle pain(PGP) / symphasis pubis disorder (SPD) are referred here and Billie Hall has a special interest in women’s health.  Sacro-iliac belts can be purchased at the clinic.
