At Knightwood Leisure Centre in Valley Park, Eastleigh, Jonathan Clark Physiotherapy offers individually tailored Western acupuncture treatments with our highly skilled Western acupuncture practitioners, who are fully qualified and chartered physiotherapists, trained in the art of acupuncture.
Acupuncture is a treatment derived from ancient Chinese medicine. Fine needles are inserted at certain sites in the body for therapeutic or preventative purposes, helping to treat a wide range of health conditions. At Jonathan Clark Physiotherapy we use Western acupuncture, an adaptation of Chinese acupuncture that draws upon current knowledge of anatomy, physiology and pathology, and the principles of evidence based medicine.
Western acupuncture promotes the release of chemicals in the nervous system, some of which are pain relieving and healing. It also results in the relaxation of muscles.
Research supports the effectiveness of acupuncture for pain relief and physiotherapists therefore use it as part of a comprehensive treatment plan.
It can also be used for other health conditions such as stress, migraines, chronic tension-type headaches, anxiety, irritable bowel syndrome, insomnia and depression.
