๐Ÿ’ญ We thought we'd give you the low down about what it is, how it works and if you can benefit from having some. ๐Ÿ’‰ Medical acupuncture is a therapeutic modality involving the insertion of fine needles into soft tissue structures. Sometimes known as dry needling, it is an adaptation of traditional/Chinese acupuncture, that focuses on muscular anatomy, rather than energy lines or meridians. ๐Ÿ” The aim of medical acupuncture, as with most therapeutic treatment, is to encourage healing and pain relief. โ“ So how does it work? In short... the insertion of the needle into the soft tissue โฌ†๏ธ increases the stimulation of blood flow to the area. Which in turn, โฌ‡๏ธ decreases pain, โฌ‡๏ธ tightness and tenderness and results in relaxation of the structure ๐Ÿ’ช

๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€โš•๏ธ It can be used as well as, or instead of other treatments we offer at BBST. If you would like some more information or want to book in for some medical acupuncture treatment just drop us a message ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ“ฉ
