Our Acupuncturist, Ruth Irving is trained in traditional Chinese Acupuncture, which is a more in depth study of traditional Chinese medicine than Western based 'dry needling.'   Dry needling is just a small part of her extensive training.  Acupuncture may be a stand-alone treatment or combined with other techniques such as massage (for example, tui na or deep tissue massage).

Traditional Chinese Acupuncture may help treat a wide range of sports related injuries, strains and sprains, assist with pain relief and increase recovery time.

As well as acupuncture your traditional Chinese Medicine acupuncturist may use electro-acupuncture, cupping, heat therapy (moxa) and massage to facilitate your recovery.

The British Acupuncture Council or BAcC (the U.K.’s leading self-regulatory body for the practice of traditional acupuncture) provides a growing body of evidence-based clinical research showing that traditional acupuncture safely treats a wide range of common health problems.  The BAcC provides accurate and unbiased fact sheets which summarise this research.
