Pain and injury

Pain is common,
but not normal

If you’re suffering from fibromyalgia, arthritis, aches and pains, muscle soreness or niggles from new or old injuries, acupuncture for pain can help you get your life back, without the need for more invasive procedures or extra medication.


You don’t need to put up with chronic pain or debilitating injuries.


There is mounting evidence for the long-term success of acupuncture treatment for pain and injuries.

In a 2018 systematic review of over 20,000 trials on adults with osteoarthritis, chronic headache or back, neck and shoulder pain, findings indicated that:


  • Acupuncture was more effective than the control treatment for all pain conditions and is therefore offering far more than a placebo effect for chronic pain sufferers.

  • What’s more, effects persisted over time, with a 15% reduction in pain and symptoms at one year.

It is no longer possible to say that the effectiveness of acupuncture can be attributed to the placebo effect or that it is useful only for musculoskeletal pain.

How we’ll treat your pain and injuries

The treatment begins with the placement of the acupuncture needles. In the treatment of pain we often use a TENS machine for electrotherapy, which allows us to reduce inflammation and really target any areas of acute pain. You’ll just feel a gentle pulsing sensation.


Needles stay in place from 10-20mins. To finish your treatment a specially selected tincture will be applied and you’ll be given advice on pain management and reduction between our sessions.
