Acupuncture and Sports Injuries

Ruth trained in traditional Chinese Acupuncture (tCM) which differs from Western based 'dry needling.'   Dry needling is just a small part of her extensive training.  She may use either Eastern meridian acupuncture or Western trigger point acupuncture or both during your treatment. 


Acupuncture may be a stand-alone treatment or combined with other techniques such as massage, cupping, moxa heat therapy, tui na or deep tissue massage.


Traditional Chinese Acupuncture may help treat a wide range of sports related injuries, strains and sprains, assist with pain relief and increase recovery time.

The British Acupuncture Council or BAcC (the U.K.’s leading self-regulatory body for the practice of traditional acupuncture) provides a growing body of evidence-based clinical research showing that traditional acupuncture safely treats a wide range of common health problems.  The BAcC provides accurate and unbiased fact sheets which summarise this research.
