We now offer Acupuncture at our Bawtry Clinic too

Feb 18, 2020

Acupuncture is an integral part of the rapid growth of complementary therapy in the UK. It involves the insertion of fine needles into specific points on meridians or trigger points. All needles are sterile, single use only and disposed of immediately after use. Acupuncture stimulates the nerves in skin and muscle and can produce a variety of effects.

We know that it increases the body’s release of natural painkillers – endorphin and serotonin – in the pain pathways of both the spinal cord and the brain. This modifies the way pain signals are received. However, acupuncture does much more than reduce pain, and has a beneficial effect on health. Patients often notice an improved sense of well-being after treatment.

Acupuncture is effective in a wide range of painful conditions and is commonly used to treat musculo-skeletal pain e.g. back, shoulder, neck and leg pain. It has been used successfully to treat headaches, migraines, trapped nerves, sports injuries, chronic muscle strains and various kinds of rheumatic and arthritic pain.
