At Muscle People, we often have clients come to us seeking real relief from pain. They have tried several products and programmes to no avail. Luckily, Muscle People Physiotherapy has some of the most qualified acupuncture staff in Christchurch. We provide quality acupuncture treatments Christchurch customers would recommend as an effective solution for relieving pain.

What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture involves stimulation of specific locations near the surface of the skin, called acupuncture points. These points have been found to influence the function of certain body organs and tissues.

The World Health Organisation supports the use of acupuncture in the treatment of:

  • Musculoskeletal conditions
  • Neurological Disorders
  • Respiratory Conditions
  • Digestive Disorders
  • Emotional Conditions
  • Immune Disorders
  • Addiction Support
  • Skin Conditions
  • Women's Health and Pregnancy Related Conditions

Acupuncture is a brilliant complement to our other physiotherapy services but it can also be done alone. It reduces pain by stimulating the brain to release natural pain-relieving chemicals such as endorphins, melatonin and serotonin. This release of chemicals helps the body heal, sleep well, and improves overall well-being.
