Acupuncture is a type of treatment where small needles are inserted into the skin, at specific key points across the body. The treatment requires specialist knowledge and accurate diagnosis and should always be performed by a certified practitioner.

Acupuncture for the treatment of pain is a common treatment offered by chartered physiotherapists. As well as reducing pain, acupuncture can actively improve rates of healing and recovery, thereby enhancing treatment outcomes for patients.

At Bode Clinic our senior physiotherapists are trained and certified by the AACP in western acupuncture as a post-graduate study, ensuring our patients receive the highest standard of care and quality assurance.

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 bodys own healing chemicals in order to aid recovery and enhance rehabilitation.

Acupuncture within physiotherapy is used against the background of clinical and research evidence. The concept of Traditional Chinese Medicine [TCM] is an ancient system of written scripts as far back as 1000BC, founded on the holistic concept of treatment and an acknowledgement of the bodys ability to return to its balanced state of health, given the correct stimulus to do so.

💛Could you help us, so we can help you?
We are temporarily closed, but we aim to come back stronger than ever 💪🏼
We are offering online consultations, helping people set up home offices, helping people get through their rehabilitation because certain things just can’t wait.
But some of our patients who aren’t suffering from an acute injury needing urgent care, they might not mind waiting another few weeks...
If you are that person; why not pay for your session now using a gift voucher?
Or send one to a friend who needs a bit of a booster and receive a happy email?
Buying gift vouchers from us will significantly help us continue our work, and in return we will be there for you when we reopen our doors again, ready to help you 💛

👶🏼 🍼 Some baby news 🍼 👶🏼
A couple of weeks ago we were laughing wondering which of the physios is going off on maternity leave. The focus has slightly changed since then, and this covid-19 has taken majority of our attention.
But that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate the little happy things in life 💛
The picture might trick you, but it is Kristin who will be off and Pablo will continue to work (..on his diet? 😆 sorry Pablo).
We have another physio joining the team supporting Pablo and Jake, but we have of course delayed the start date as we are currently closed.
We will announce the new physio when the time is right, and we are absolutely thrilled with the new addition to the team.
In the meantime both Kristin, Pablo and Jake will be offering online virtual appointments and we look forward to catching up with all our patients currently at home.
Stay safe everyone, soon this will all be over and we can return to normal again 🙏
