Acupuncture is probably the best known Traditional Chinese Medicine treatment that has been in existence for over 3,000 years.

The treatment involves the insertion of very fine disposable needles into the skin along the course of the meridians or channels of energy of which there are twelve.

The main aim of the treatment is to balance the body energy of that person therefore reducing the persons pain and optimizing the healing process.

It can be combined with other physiotherapy techniques and can be used effectively when other more conventional treatments have failed.
