Acupuncture has been used in China for over 2,000 years and is increasingly used in Western medicine for the treatment of various health conditions. When used in physiotherapy it is used to reduce pain, improve sleep and encourages a sense of well-being. Research has shown this is achieved by the release of endorphins and oxtocin, following insertion of the very fine needles.


Whilst it doesn’t work for everyone, it can be a very useful adjunct to our treatments, especially when more conventional treatments have not worked. Generally, patients know after 3-4 sessions whether it’ll work for them. Sessions are generally longer at 45 minutes. 


Lucy initially trained in the use of acupuncture more than 20 years ago and has found it a useful treatment alongside her more traditional physiotherapy skills. She recently completed a refresher course at Loughborough University. She is a member of the Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists (AACP) which ensures all members adhere to a strict code of practice and keeps up with regular training and updates.
