Acupuncture in Bishop’s Stortford

Acupuncture is a treatment derived from ancient Chinese medicine where fine sterile disposable needles are inserted at certain sites in the body in order to release natural chemicals from the brain and spinal cord to help the body heal itself.

It is based on sound evidence and research and on the Chinese philosophy to balance the yin and yang to promote well-being. It is believed that acupuncture unblocks energy meridians, accessible through 350 acupuncture points in the body.

After a full physiotherapy assessment, acupuncture can be used to reduce pain and inflammation. Acupuncture releases the positive chemicals from the brain, such as endorphins, melatonin and serotonin, to promote sleep, balance and harmony; sleep is essential for our body to be able to heal and repair itself.

I am Qualified with the Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists (AACP), the largest professional body for acupuncture in the UK. In addition, I have worked with the human body for over 20 years, treating all ages for a range of health conditions, injuries and disabilities. I use a caring and sensitive approach to all my patients/clients to gain their trust and so that they feel relaxed with me as their physiotherapist.

Acupuncture is also an effective treatment for the following issues:

  • Headaches
  • Migraines
  • Menopausal symptoms
  • Stress levels
  • Tiredness
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS

If required, other treatments such as myofascial release, massage or reflexology can be used to speed up and aid recovery in combination with acupuncture. The use of acupuncture needles can also be used for dry needling techniques to reduce pain and increase joint range of motion.
