What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture may be the most popular aspect of Traditional Eastern Medicine. This method is being practised here at A Pinch of Prevention Peter completed 4 years of education in this ancient tradition and now utilises it in his treatment approach. Acupuncture, unlike dry needling, involves the gentle application of fine needles to specific areas of the body. This is done to bring positive change to the system or area being treated.

Acupuncture is a practise that has been used for a long time. The first recorded cases of it being used were documented over 2000 years ago. Acupuncture is startingly acceptable in the management of many wide and varied disease states and it is a highly respected and well-researched treatment modality, supported by thousands of scientific papers, published in highly respected scientific journals.

Acupuncture: How does it work?

Acupuncture is an intriguing combination of art and science and despite the endless work of the brainiest and greatest minds in modern research working on it, a comprehensive explanation in Western Terms as to exactly how it works is still, infuriatingly and gloriously, unavailable.

From a Traditional Eastern perspective, the body and its diseases were very elegantly described as an imbalance or blockage in the continuous flow of energy that circumnavigates our corporeal body. As a gentle way to stimulate or mechanically clear these slow points of activity, acupuncture played a significant role to make this possible. It was applied to precisely placed points on the body that had the most energy. These points were manipulated to allow the energy to flow more easily and bring a new lease on life to the area or affected systems. This encourages the area to recover and return to its normal state.

Is Acupuncture part of your physiotherapy treatment?

A Pinch of Prevention uses a thorough assessment to determine whether the patient is suitable for this treatment and a course of needling is often complimented with a flexibility program and hands-on treatment as appropriate. Acupuncture has become increasingly common to be used in conjunction with a physiotherapy treatment regime. Our team at A Pinch Of Prevention uses Acupuncture in its evidence-based treatment of acute and chronic pain, sports injuries, and musculoskeletal injuries.

What is the Acupuncture Evidence Project?
