Dr Simon Moore is a trained acupuncturist and has been practising this technique since 1983. He mainly uses this to treat soft tissue injuries, acute and chronic pain and muscle spasm.
Acupuncture is one of many treatments used as an integrated approach to the management of pain and inflammation and as a means of stimulating the body’s own healing chemicals in order to aid recovery and enhance rehabilitation.
Acupuncture is used against the background of clinical and research evidence. The concept of Traditional Chinese Medicine [TCM] is an ancient system of written scripts as far back as 1000BC, founded on the holistic concept of treatment and an acknowledgement of the body’s ability to return to its balanced state of health, given the correct stimulus to do so.
