Ramsay Health Care is pleased to offer its patients access to the complementary medicine of acupuncture. Acupuncture is a form of complementary therapy where fine needles are inserted into your skin at specific points of your body.

We work with acupuncture health professionals who are members of the British Acupuncture Council. Some of our physiotherapists have undertaken specialised training in acupuncture. They uniquely use acupuncture in conjunction with their other treatments such as exercises, manipulation, and stretching to relieve chronic pain and other health conditions. By using acupuncture alongside other treatments, patients have a wider range of options to manage their condition successfully.

Some of our hospitals offer electro-acupuncture. This is the practice of acupuncture with the addition of small electric currents used to apply more stimulation to your muscles and nerves. Electroacupuncture is used to treat musculoskeletal pain. It is intended to help increase the potential healing effects of standard acupuncture.
