Medical acupuncture

Medical acupuncture or dry needling is the use of hair fine needles to stimulate certain points on the body. This aims to reduce certain troublesome symptoms and to increase symptoms of a health and well-being.

The traditional Chinese theory behind acupuncture as medical treatment is very different from that of Western medicine. In traditional Chinese medicine, imbalances in the basic energetic flow of life – known as qi or chi (chee) – are thought to cause illness.

Medical acupuncture or dry needling is the Western theory behind acupuncture. Western acupuncture incorporates modern concepts of neuroscience and researchers at the National Institute of Health are studying at least three possible explanations for how acupuncture works Opioid release.

Medical acupuncture benefits

During acupuncture, endorphins that are part of your body’s natural pain-control system may be released into your central nervous system – your brain and spinal cord. This reduces pain much like taking a pain medication.

Spinal cord stimulation. Acupuncture may stimulate the nerves in your spinal cord to release pain-suppressing neurotransmitters. This has sometimes been called the “gate theory.”

Blood flow changes. Acupuncture needles may increase the amount of blood flow in the area around the needle. The increased blood flow may supply additional nutrients or remove toxic substances, or both, promoting healing.

Chloe never dissapoints , I have always suffered with my back especially since having a second baby ! Her pregnancy treatment made me feel like a new woman while I was suffering with achey legs and back , her products and environemnt are both relaxing and welcoming and nothing is too much trouble , even if I’ve messaged her to see me at short notice because of a flare up she’s amazing and always trys her best to get me in .. more importantly she listens , locates the issue and gets it solved. Highly recommended ! X

Amazing therapist!

I am a professional mixed martial arts fighter, and I have been for a number of years with much experience in pushing my body to the limits physically. I have been to different osteopaths, physiotherapists and masseurs over the years but Chloe is by far the best in order to help my body recover. Not only is she very knowledgable about her trade, she is also super friendly and helpful whenever I want to ask any questions relating to any injuries I may have. Thoroughly recommended, and I could not even think about doing an 8 week training fight camp without Chloes help.

Can I recommend enough

Thanks Chloe for the excellent service you provide - nothing is too much trouble. Amazingly accommodating for working parents. Chloe goes the extra mile to make sure that all my ailments are addressed during the session regardless of the time it takes! Thanks Chloe

Great service

Relaxing, enjoyable and very professional

A very relaxing experience

Chloe is very professional and I felt very comfortable during the treatments I have had with her. I have a back condition and have found Chloe’s massages to help with this, Chloe has also helped me with shin splints as well. I’m happy to recommend Chloe to everyone, in fact my fiancé and mother have both visited Chloe too and were very pleased with the results.

Very knowledgable and great treatments
