Located in Bath, Hybrid Health offers professional acupuncture treatment.
Acupuncture is one of the many skills used within physiotherapy as an integrated approach to the management of pain and inflammation and as a means of stimulating the body’s own healing chemicals in order to aid recovery and enhance rehabilitation.
Acupuncture within physiotherapy is implemented in accordance with clinical and research evidence. Western medical acupuncture was later derived from Traditional Chinese Medicine [TCM] which is an ancient system of medicine which dates as far back as 1000BC. TCM founded the concept of treating specific points along the body where unseen energy pathways could be stimulated with a needle to effect energy (qi) within the body in order to support the body back to optimal health.
Dry needling is similar to Acupuncture in nature, it is used to help reduce muscle tension by stimulating the needles in a trigger point
Benefits include reducing and relieving pain by natural release of opioid analgesia and endorphins, and it also increases blood flow to the area, therefore speeding and promoting healing process & recovery.
In addition, easing the trigger points may improve flexibility and increase range of motion.
