Acupuncture is an ancient technique based on Traditional Chinese Medicine principles of the flow of Chi (energy) through the body. According to these principles illness and pain occur when the body's Qi or Chi, or vital energy, cannot flow freely.

Sterile Acupuncture needles are used to help treat pain. The treatment involves using very fine needles, inserted at particular acupuncture points on the body that can help in the overall treatment of pain and can be useful for relaxation.

Medical acupuncture is practiced at Tralee Physiotherapy Clinic to treat musculoskeletal conditions only.
