Acupuncture in Liverpool & Newton Le Willows
We provide an educated & precision driven approach to traditional acupuncture in both our Liverpool & Newton Lw Willows Clinics
Acupuncture dates back thousands of years and involves the stimulation of specific points in the body with fine sterile needles.
Acupuncture can reduce pain by stimulating the brain and spinal cord to produce natural pain-relieving chemicals such as endorphins, melatonin (which promotes sleep) and serotonin (to promote well-being), to name but a few. These chemicals assist the body’s healing processes and offer pain relief as a precursor to other treatments such as manual therapy or exercise in order to aid recovery.
Channels of energy called meridians are believed to run throughout the body and these are thought to have a link to your internal organs. For example the bladder channel runs along your back and down the back of your legs to your feet. This merdian is commonly used in the treatment of low back pain.
Stimulation of needles is thought of correct imbalances in the flow or qi (energy). Acupuncture treatment can be for a diverse number of conditions but its particuraly effective for pain relief.
Here at Pall Mall Physio we use acupuncture with the aim of enhancing physiotherapy treatments such as exercise and rehabilitation techniques to promote recovery and improve quality of life.
