Medical Acupuncture

Stemming from Traditional Chinese Medicine, Medical Acupuncture adopts a Western methodology to address musculoskeletal issues in many ways including allowing the body to recognise problems with certain muscles and use our ‘self healing’ mechanism to aid recovery as well as allowing us to introduce new neurological pathways into muscles that may have been ‘inactive’ for a while thus contributing to pain and discomfort.

Cupping

Silicone cups are used to suction skin, allowing blood flow to the underlying structures. Silicone cups are used due to the ease of moving them around joints in order to introduce blood flow, reduce swelling and aid in lymphatic drainage, promoting better range of movement in joints and ‘loosening’ underlying fascia for ease of muscular activity.

Reflexology

K Taping

Kinesiology tape made of cotton and has an adhesive is used on muscles to inhibit them – if they are over working or to activate them if they are underworking. K tape can also be used for joint support, such as the knees, ankles, elbows, wrists and shoulders, as well as correcting posture such as rounded shoulder. K tape is also used for swelling and aiding lymphatic flow. Many athletes use tape while participating in sports or for training to avoid injuries and facilitate movement. However, taping can be used on anyone, from pregnancy, to support the growing bump to tightness due to an office job!

Dynamic Taping

Dynamic tape is a biomechanics tape that aims to directly manage load, modify movement patterns, and assist function. It changes the way a joint will sit enabling full movement when there is a restriction – a very different approach to K tape.
