Medical Acupuncture (Dry Needling) is a modern adaptation of the ancient Chinese practice of acupuncture. Rather than focusing on the ancient beliefs of ‘yin’, ‘yang’ and ‘qi’ energy, medical acupuncture is based on a combined knowledge of physiology, pathology and anatomy. It is a therapeutic technique for the treatment of acute and chronic pain and for a number of musculoskeletal conditions.
The treatment involves the insertion of fine needles into certain points, defined as Trigger Points, across the body to encourage healing and pain relief. The needles are very fine and so most people feel nothing at all as the needles are inserted, some people feel a slight sharpness, the feeling experienced varies between person to person.
Only sterile, single-use, disposable needles will be used.
Medical acupuncture can be used in conjunction with a massage treatment or as a stand-alone treatment.
I rely on my treatment from ER Health and Fitness to keep working. As a self employed Driving Instructor I need my wits about me, without the pain relief gained from my massage sessions, I certainly would not be able to work.
Great, Fantastic pamper nights for me and the girls. All of us are nurses and we know we are being treated well. Always a smile on our faces when we know Lucy/ER Health and Fitness is giving us the treatment!
I have been a client of Lucy's for a couple of years now. I originally went to her as I was suffering from various sports injuries. Not only did she help me but our regular treatments have allowed me to continue as an active sportsman even though I'm nearing 50. I would highly recommend her.
I have been seeing Lucy for over a year now which started with a sport injury but I have carried on with her as I love my one hour of unwinding and relaxing.
A few years ago my personal trainer introduced me to Lucy, to treat a niggling sports injury. I was so impressed with the initial treatments, advice and support provided by Lucy that I now see her (or Tom) on a very regular basis (approx. every 4-6 weeks). I view my treatments as an integral part of maintaining a healthy, fit and stress free body. I have no hesitation in recommending ER Health and Fitness - an extremely knowledgeable, professional, friendly and reliable team.
Brilliant Vocal Massage - really recommend it to any singers, actors, teachers or those who use their voice to make their living ... Or anyone who talks a lot.
First post pregnancy work out with Lucy from ER health and fitness - didn't kill me but def feel like I had a good workout. Really looking forward to the next session now.
Totally Amazing! The sports massage on my knee after injury has got me back walking, dancing, spinning and now training for a half marathon- thank you - would highly recommend.
Just a little while ago I had the most wonderful "vocal massage", specifically worked for the opening and relaxation of the throat and chest. To say it was amazing does not do it justice, I was singing everyday after the treatment, either rehearsing or performing and the benefits were fantastic, I was very focused on how open and free my singing was. I had to use a mic in performance and when using a mic I tend to concentrate on support from the diaphragm even more as to not rely on the mic for support and I believe this treatment was very helpful for that. Excellent.
