Medical Acupuncture – Pain Relief Therapy
Available at our Benfleet branch

Medical Acupuncture has become increasingly well known for its safe and effective treatment of pain. Medical Acupuncture stimulates the nerves in skin and muscle, and can produce a variety of effects. Research shows that medical acupuncture treatment increases the body's release of natural painkillers (endorphins and serotonin) in the pain pathways of both the spinal cord and the brain. This modifies the way pain signals are received and can help reduce your pain...

What is involved in having Medical Acupuncture?
Your first consultation is a comprehensive full one hour assessment and treatment. This will include a complete medical history, blood pressure screening, full outline of your individual pain relief care plan as well as expert advice and a course of treatment tailored to your individual needs and condition. Typically, fine needles are inserted through the skin and left in position briefly. The number of needles varies but may be as few as two or three. Treatments are usually provided in six consecutive appointments but may be less if your condition responds quickly. Treatment intervals are normally once a week to begin with and then extended to longer intervals as your pain reduces.
