Acupuncture

Specialist treatments in St Albans

How can Acupuncture help you?

Acupuncture is an age-old healing practice that forms a significant part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). This therapeutic technique involves the insertion of very fine needles at specific points on the body known as 'acupoints'. It works by stimulating the body's natural healing capabilities and promoting physical and emotional well-being. Within the context of physiotherapy, acupuncture can be utilised as a part of a holistic treatment plan to help alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, improve muscle function and promote recovery. It is widely used for a variety of conditions including musculoskeletal issues such as back pain, neck pain, and joint pain,with strong evidence.

testimonial

what client says about us

I have basically been healed by the acupuncture I have received from EBS Physio. I had pain stabbing pain in my shoulder joint and upper arm muscles. I had it for months, I wasn’t able to carry on with normal daily tasks and would have to take anti-inflammatory painkillers almost everyday. Since my treatment started I felt instant relief and now I have no more pain.
