Acupuncture In Swansea For Pain Management

Hi, I’m Tim Wright, acupuncturist based in Mumbles, Swansea. I offer specialist acupuncture to help you overcome the discomfort and limitations of pain, so you can get back to the exercise, activities and life that you love.
Together, I’ll help you to:
  • Get back to the activities you love without fear of pain or injury.
  • Dial down the pain and restriction that’s making life tough, small and full of anxiety.
  • Get you back to saying “Yes” to social events and fun without worrying you won’t be able to manage or that you might slow others down.
  • Re-engage in those sports and fitness regimes that make you feel like you again.
  • Stay fit and active at every age, so you can live the life you want

I use a unique combination of traditional acupuncture and targeted bio-mechanical treatment to help you get your life back.

The Three Phases of pain and how acupuncture can help

Acupuncture treatment for pain progresses in a reasonably predictable pattern from the red light phase of crippling pain through to the green light of getting your life back…


Pain is so acute that movement is problematic. And the pain may be impacting things you used to enjoy – sports, going out, mundane tasks at work or in the house. Acute or chronic its important to get your pain treated to stop it progressing. The earlier you catch it, the easier and quicker it tends to be to treat.


As treatment progresses, pain levels drop and tend to centralise towards the source. Movement improves and many activities that were previously problematic become possible again. The pain may have gone, but often pressure on the previously painful area elicits pain. It’s important not to stop treatment too early as this latent pain can lurk, just waiting to be triggered again.


The end game of treatment. Normal movement is restored. The area is no longer sensitive to touch or pressure. Previously painful activities can be enjoyed pain free.


I have been for acupuncture with Tim a couple of times for neck pain and headaches. It has been a relaxing experience and he is very professional and knowledgeable. The pain has eased since the acupuncture. I would highly recommend him.

If I could rate Tim at Gower acupuncture higher than a 5 star I would. I’ve spent the last 14 months trying to get a diagnosis for a muscle problem that I have, I’ve spent money going to private consultants, numerous trips to the doctors, hospital and physiotherapists and nobody could give me even a hint at what it could be. I thought I would give acupuncture a try as I didn’t know what else I could try and within one consultation and treatment with Tim he had managed to give me a diagnosis that described my problem to a tee. I would highly recommend him.

James Davies

Myself and my daughter have been treated by Tim for a number of years for several issues including back pain, sleep problems and tinnitus. Acupuncture has cleared my tinnitus and definitely helps with pain management. I know that without acupuncture, I would struggle to function, stay in work and cope with pain. I feel Tim’s approach is truly holistic and my daughter and I always benefit from treatments.

Susie Davies

Thank you Tim after 4 treatments I am much better, and am able to walk pain free. Would thoroughly recommend.

Went to Tim with Sciatica pains that had been troubling me for almost a year. Everything I had tried, including physio, would just provide temporary relief. I’ve had a number of acupuncture sessions with Tim, and the difference is genuinely amazing. I can’t thank him enough for his help!

Gareth Hammond

Tim has seen me for since October 2020 when I contacted him about my migraines. In the last four months I have had as many migraines as I would previously have had in ten days. I would have no hesitation in recommending acupuncture to help with chronic migraines.
Tim is now working on other issues to do with my Long Covid and I’ve already seen a small but valuable improvement in my energy levels. I feel like it’s a worthwhile investment into my health and wish I could get acupuncture on the NHS!

What the Professionals Think About Acupuncture For Pain Relief

I think it’s fair to say that acupuncture is here to stay. It’s going to be a permanent addition to our tool box…Right now, we have a pretty solid foundation for the efficacy of acupuncture for headache, osteoarthritis (OA), and musculoskeletal conditions

Farshad M. Ahadian, MD, clinical professor of anesthesiology, University of California, San Diego

Recommended by NICE for treatemeht of chronic pain.

Rationale for NICE to recommend acupuncture here

Anyone experiencing chronic pain deserves to know that acupuncture is an effective treatment option for pain management available at a relatively low cost. Whether you’re trying to avoid unpronounceable ingredients, the possibility of addiction, or if you’re just curious about what an alternative treatment can offer you, acupuncture is an important tool in our pain management arsenal and should be used as a first-line resource, particularly for those with chronic pain issues. Don’t let fear of needles stop you. Acupuncture may be exactly what you need to ease your pain
