Acupuncture is derived originally from Chinese medicine. Fine single use needles are inserted into specific points in a person’s body for therapeutic or preventative purposes. This stimulates the central nervous system which in turn results in the body producing natural substances, such as pain-relieving endorphins into the muscles, spinal cord and brain. These biochemical changes may stimulate the body’s natural healing abilities and promote physical and emotional well-being. Acupuncture can be used to treat a wide range of health conditions including tension type headaches and migraines, chronic pain, osteoarthritis and musculoskeletal conditions such as low back and neck pain
Also know as soft tissue therapy, this is a specialised, dynamic deep tissue massage where problem areas are identified within the muscles, joints and tendons.

Class IV Laser Therapy is a medical treatment that uses focused light to stimulate and increase cellular metabolism to speed up healing, decrease pain, reduce muscle spasm and improve circulation to injured tissues. This provides a safe, painless, non invasive and non-pharmacological alternative to pain relief. Used in hospitals since the 1970s, Laser is used to treat acute and chronic conditions. It is also used as a tool to prolong the need for some surgeries, as well as pre and post surgery to help control pain and swelling. Clinically used for neck, back and shoulder pain, sciatica, arthritis, Fibromyalgia, soft tissue damage and sports injuries. Please ask if you would like further links to research papers.
Sports Therapy is an aspect of healthcare that is specifically concerned with the prevention of injury and the rehabilitation of the patient back to optimal levels of functional, occupational and sports specific fitness regardless of age and ability. It utilises the principles of sport and exercise science to prepare the patient for training, competition and where applicable work.
