Points Clinic is an acupuncture studio in the beautiful village of Slaithwaite in Huddersfield.
Acupuncture is the millennia old practice of inserting hair fine single use sterile needles in specific points in the body to strengthen, stimulate and relieve symptoms of disease.
Acupuncture has been found to reduce stress, increase energy levels, enhance physical performance, prevent illness and pain and can help you take an active role in your own wellness.
It works by stimulating the sensory nerves in the body to promote healing and release endorphins and ATP (the energy in our cells), which converts into adenosine, this has local pain killing effects. It then stimulates the production of fibroblasts which make collagen - this maintains the structural integrity of the body.
Acupuncture is great for restoring energy, balance and starting the bodies own recovery systems.
