Acupuncture is a medical tradition dating back to ancient times in China. Meridians and the flow of vital energy ‘Qi’ form its theoretical basis. In western society, acupuncture has long been recognized as complementing the practice of physiotherapy. Nic has a post graduate certificate in acupuncture where he links the philosophies of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) with the theory and practice of western science in order to treat musculoskeletal conditions and sports injuries.
Acupuncture involves the insertion of tiny single use needles into the skin to stimulate specific points along meridians within the body. This is thought to correct and rebalance the flow of “Qi” thereby reducing pain and restoring health. These needles may remain in place for up to 40 minutes but are often combined with physiotherapy treatment and are used for shorter periods of time.
