Active X Acupuncture Services

Our osteopaths are also qualified in acupuncture techniques. We provide this service as part of our commitment to pain relief and can combine it with any of the other treatments on this website.
We use an orthodox medical diagnosis to deduce the best acupuncture course for your physical needs. We also have rigorous standards for the safe practice of acupuncture and conduct our therapy in a relaxed and professional environment. Acupuncture at active X backs is not a stand alone treatment but is integrated as part of an osteopathic appointment.
