How We Use Acupuncture in Physiotherapy
Acupuncture, originating from ancient Chinese medicine, is now a globally recognized therapeutic treatment in physiotherapy. By using thin needles at specific body points, it harnesses the body’s innate healing capabilities, addressing both physical and mental well-being.
How Acupuncture Works:
Acupuncture involves the insertion of sterilized, fine needles at specific acupoints. These points connect pathways or “meridians” that carry vital energy or “Qi.” The treatment aims to balance this energy flow, releasing blockages and stimulating the body’s natural healing mechanisms.
