Conventional acupuncture involves the use of single-use, pre-sterilised disposable needles that pierce the skin at the acupuncture points to produce natural pain-relieving chemicals. It has also been shown to have other physiological effects on the body which assist the body's healing processes.

We're open Monday to Friday, 8am to 8pm
We're all busy and understand that it can be challenging to get an appointment, that's why we're open until 8pm throughout the week.
There’s no need to wait for a GP referral
Waiting for treatment on the NHS can be a long process. With Physio Med, you can get the treatment you need quickly.
For an ancient Chinese medicine that's been around for over 5,000 years, there are no long-term side effects. Believe it or not, there's little to no pain involved. Short term, however, you may experience minor bruising and a tiny amount of discomfort. This is only minor and temporary.
Acupuncture relieves pain
When the needles are inserted into the skin, endorphins are released and this helps to relieve any pain.
It's very effective
Acupuncture works well with musculoskeletal related injuries and goes hand-in-hand with physiotherapy treatment.
A suitable replacement to painkillers
Some patients have an intolerance to painkillers. Therefore, acupuncture can be an effective alternative to reduce pain
