I would highly recommend Kenneth, made a noticeable difference while previous sessions with other therapist didn't necessarily have the same effect. 5 out of 5...

I was referred to Empire Physiotherapy in April 2018 with acute back ache resulting in time off work. Once I visited Ken, I felt good was being done. Ken’s deep sports massage and acupuncture hit the spot, enabling tense muscles to relax and function to return. Coupled with a regimen of exercises, I was quickly back on track and returned to work after 3 weeks. Very knowledgeable and professional and understanding in his field.

When I came to see Ken I had severe pain in my lower back and hip. He quickly diagnosed Piriformis Syndrome. The treatment he provided included deep tissue massage and assisted stretches. He also gave me stretches and exercises to do at home. I am now able to train again and just maintain with a monthly sports massage! I would definitely recommend Ken!

We treat a wide range of conditions and get long lasting results.

What is medical acupuncture?
  • Acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine stainless steel needles in the skin.
  • It works by stimulating the body to produce its own pain and stress-relieving chemicals, (endorphins and exytocin).
  • It may also promote sleep and encourage a sense of well being by stimulating melatonin and release of serotonin.
  • Acupuncture also stimulates nerve fibres to block out pain signals  and help to reduce the sensitivity of tender points in the body.
  • A typical acupuncture session last between 15-30minutes
Does acupuncture hurt?

Acupuncture works by stimulating special Acupressure points that are all part of an interconnected network that spans across your entire body. This stimulation helps restore the flow of energy (Qi) and blood through your body, and this helps your body absorb nutrients and remove toxins. Keeping your Meridian System clear helps you keep your body functioning properly, and a functioning body is a healthier body.

Does acupuncture have side effects?

Acupuncture do not create side effects; it is safe, natural and effective.
