What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is perhaps the most famous aspect of Traditional Eastern Medicine, and it forms an important part of our treatment methodology here at A Pinch of Prevention. Peter undertook 4 years of formalised study of this ancient tradition, and he uses it with great success in his treatment programs. 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 used to manage many different diseases. It is a well-respected treatment modality that is supported by thousands of scientific papers in 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. Manipulation of these points allowed the energy to move more easily again, bringing a new lease of life back to the area or affected system, thus encouraging the diseased area or system to recover and regain its normal function.

Acupuncture: How does it affect your physiotherapy treatment?

A Pinch Of Prevention offers a comprehensive assessment that determines whether a patient is suitable to receive this treatment. A course in needling is often complemented with a flexible program and hands-on treatment, as necessary.
