Used for millennia in China, acupuncture has only relatively recently gained recognition in the UK as a useful tool within healthcare. At Bodymechanics we use acupuncture for pain relief and to decrease muscle tension. We will never use this on a client without first deeming whether this is necessary, and will always gain consent prior to this treatment. Acupuncture can have profound effects on longstanding pain as well as muscle tightness and overactivity. We tend to use a dry needling approach to acupuncture, so if you have found this to be beneficial in the past, please highlight this to your therapist as we are happy to incorporate this in to our treatments.
