Osteopathy treats a range of health issues including acute pain from injury
and trauma, and chronic pain from occupational stress and repetitive strains.
Acupuncture works with single-use disposable needles inserted below the skin.
The scientific basis of how acupuncture works is related to changes in blood
flow to promote soft-tissue healing, and effects on the nervous system.
