Acupuncture & Physiotherapy

A number of physiotherapists are qualified through the Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists (AACP) to use acupuncture as part of a patient's physiotherapy treatment. These are as follows:

Claire Butler-Henderson
Sue Kortum
Jayne Nixon
Faye Peck
Louise Huntley
Emily Whatling



The initial consultation will include questioning, observation and examination of the tongue and pulses. The practitioner is looking for a pattern into which is woven a total picture of the patient’s health.

The frequency and length of treatment required depends upon the nature of the condition, the length of time the patient has suffered from the condition, and their general state of health.
