What is Acupuncture

Western medical acupuncture (dry needling) is the use of acupuncture following a medical diagnosis.

It involves stimulating sensory nerves under the skin and in the muscles.

This results in the body producing natural substances, such as pain-relieving endorphins. It’s likely that these naturally released substances are responsible for the beneficial effects experienced with acupuncture.

A course of acupuncture is usually recommended because it can take a few sessions for you to see improvements.

Acupuncture is used mainly to relieve discomfort associated with a variety of diseases and conditions, including:

  • Chemotherapy-induced and postoperative nausea and vomiting
  • Dental pain
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Headaches, including tension headaches and migraines
  • Labor pain
  • Lower back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Osteoarthritis


Our patients are at the heart of what we do, and we want you to be in control of your care. To us that means you can choose the physiotherapist you want to see and when you want to see them. They’ll be with you every step of the way. All physiotherapists carrying out acupuncture at Sussex Premier Health hospitals are qualified therapists and are trained to the standards set by the Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists.

Preparing for acupuncture treatment is simple.   Wear loose, comfortable clothing that can be easily lifted above the knees and elbows. Most treatments can be done with the clothing on, however, sometimes it is necessary to access regions of the body that are covered with clothing, such as the entire back.
