Acupuncture at the Christchurch Clinic

Acupuncture involves the use of fine, sterile, stainless steel pins which are carefully passed through the skin and either left in place for 10–30 minutes or, on occasion, moved to increase the effect.

This treatment assists in the reduction of pain and swelling and enhances soft tissue healing after injury.

It is proven effective in reducing the pain and debilitation of back and neck injury, joint injuries and chronic conditions like Achilles tendonitis and tennis elbow.
