Angela has completed the well renowned AACP Foundation Course to be able to integrate evidence based acupuncture into physiotherapy.
This puts her in a hugely advantageous position of being able to incorporate both her physiotherapy studies and Western Medical Acupuncture into practice for the benefit of clients.
Western Medical Acupuncture is a safe therapy that involves the insertion of very tiny needles, acts mainly by stimulating the brain and spinal cord to produce natural pain-relieving chemicals, such as endorphins, melatonin to promote sleep, serotonin to promote wellbeing.
The body has the ability to "self-repair"; the use of Acupuncture enhances the repair mechanism and enables an improved recovery time. This allows other physiotherapy treatments such as exercise, muscle strengthening and rehabilitation to achieve more effective results.
Acupuncture is useful for managing pain and inflammation and releasing myo-fascial trigger points.
Please note we do not offer stand alone acupuncture sessions or chinese acupuncture, Acupuncture is used as a treatment adjunct within physiotherapy sessions, please check you book in with a therapist able to use acupuncture if you are particulary interested in this.
