Each physiotherapy treatment plan is individual to the patient.


Our Cheltenham Acupuncture Physiotherapists have great success in reducing pain where other treatments have failed – Please scroll below for more information on acupuncture


If we can’t get you better, or your improvement plateaus we will either re-assess and change our treatment plan, refer you to a colleague for a second opinion, or write to your GP with a suggested treatment route. If you need to see a Surgeon, we can advise which Consultant specialises in your condition.



Our Acupuncture Physiotherapists have a special tool – it can often help if you have failed to respond to the more traditional treatments and is especially good for those back / neck nerve pains that won’t calm down.


How can acupuncture help me?

  • Pain relief
  • Relief of general superficial symptoms, i.e. swelling, tissue soreness.
  • Release of tight soft tissue
  • Increase in blood circulation
  • Changes in skin temperature
  • Increased feeling of well-being
  • Increased relaxation

Many conditions respond well to acupuncture e.g.:

  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Tennis elbow
  • Headaches
  • Chronic arthritic joints
  • Womens Health issues (Sally Church only)
  • Menopause symptoms (Sally Church only)

How long will it take:

The needle must be left in place for at least 20 minutes. A 30 minute treatment, twice a week for 3 weeks is common. However, personal response to the treatment will dictate future appointments.  Benefits are rarely felt immediately but the relief usually builds up after each session. If there is no response after 6 sessions, it is unlikely acupuncture will work for you.
