Why Use a Chartered Physiotherapist for Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a technique based on Traditional Chinese Medicine which successfully treats pain through the insertion of needles at specific acupuncture points to balance the body’s Chi.

Acupuncture is a safe, drug free intervention and painless procedure in which very fine needles are inserted at particular acupuncture points on the body to relieve the symptoms of various physical and psychological conditions, particularly for both acute injuries and chronic conditions resilient to other treatments.

Our team of Acupuncturists and trained Chartered Physiotherapists asses your condition and goals of treatment in order to work out a treatment plan specific to you to ensure you get the most from each session with us. Depending on your needs, our team may suggest a combination of hands-on therapy and acupuncture or just pure acupuncture to treat you.

The core benefits of using a Chartered Physiotherapist over other providers of Acupuncture are:

Safe & Clean Environment 

Your acupuncture treatment will be carried out in a professional, clean and safe environment in which the highest clinical hygiene procedures are upheld.

Give Blood

If you have received acupuncture from anyone other than a Medical Doctor, a registered Nurse or a Chartered Physiotherapist (that's us), you won't be able to give blood. This is because the above listed all practice recognised sterile techniques.

Fully Insured

All our Chartered Physiotherapists are fully insured and regulated by the Irish Society of Chartered Physiotherapists. This gives you peace of mind that you are in the safest hands. 

Highly Trained

Our physios have all been university trained to the highest standards and all of whom perform acupuncture have completed additional, intensive and highly focused courses.  


By correcting imbalances, medical acupuncture can provide (symptomatic) relief for many symptoms of underlying causes, making it a very effective tool for healing the body as well as a powerful preventative therapy.
