Acupuncture treatment with Osteopathy

We occasionally use medical acupunture within our osteopathic treatments. Medical acupuncture is also known as western acupuncture and dry needling. Please note that medical acupuncture should not be confused with Chinese acupuncture.

Traditional Chinese acupuncture

Traditional Chinese acupuncture follows rules and beliefs which have been laid down since ancient times. In this approach, the body has been divided into a series of channels. By working through these channels, the acupuncturist believes that he/she affects positively the Chi (energy) and the body fluids around the body. Acting through these components, he/she trusts that they can help with many ailments.
