Acupuncture In Swansea With Tim Wright

Swansea Acupuncturist Tim Wright

My name is Tim Wright and I practice acupuncture in Swansea. I also practice tui na massage.

One of acupunctures greatest strengths is its ability to improve patients sense of well-being. I see its main benefit of assisting the body’s own homeostatic response to return patients to a state of health, balance and well-being.

This means acupuncture can treat a wide range of conditions. In fact the World Health Organisation recognise acupuncture as effective for treating over 25 common conditions. NICE – the National Institute for Health & Care Excellence – recommend acupuncture for cost effective treatment of lower back pain and tension type headache. Who are NICE? They’re the body who recommend how the NHS should spend their money.

More About My Acupuncture Styles

I use a combination of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Distal Needling, Trigger Point Needling and Biomedical Acupuncture. I vary styles according to how patients present. Different styles have different strengths:

  • TCM tends to work well for internal issues & emotional problems.
  • Distal Needling involves inserting needles away from the problem area. It tends to work best for acute situations where the injury is recent and severe.
  • Trigger Point Needling works best for releasing tight muscles that can refer pain to distal sites in the body.
  • Biomedical Acupuncture is a more modern approach to acupuncture where the pathways of nerves and muscular structures and dysfunction are considered primary in the pathology of injury and disease.

I practice acupuncture at The Lazy Frog In Uplands, Swansea.
