What is medical acupuncture?
Medical Acupuncture is a very safe and cost effective way of managing your aches and pains.
Acupuncture has been used for more than 2,000 years in China. In the past 30 years it has become more popular in this country, and there are now over 1,500 British doctors who use acupuncture as part of their medical practice.
Avin has completed his acupuncture training with British Medical Acupuncture Society. Medical Acupuncture promotes the use and scientific understating of acupuncture within medicine for the benefit of public benefit.
Medical acupuncture may be used as a treatment modality by itself or as part of your treatment in combination with osteopathy.
The insertion of fine needless primarily aims to reduce pain, through modulating the bodies own response to a stimulus.
Medical acupuncturists use acupuncture to help ease your pain following a fully medical case history, examination and medical diagnosis discussion with you.
The fine needles stimulate sensory nerve under the skin and in the muscles of the body. This results in the body producing naturally occurring hormones, such as pain-relieving endorphins and inflammatory markers. These substances have a physiological effect on the body, the latest research shows the release of these hormones following medical acupuncture are responsible for the favourable effects experienced with medical acupuncture.
Avin has spent over 13 years as a medical acupuncturist, osteopath and specialist of sports and exercise medicine.
