Acupuncture & Taping Treatments

Acupuncture & Taping In Leeds & Surrounding Areas

Here at Physio Action, we are pleased to offer a complete range of treatments to compliment physiotherapy, including acupuncture and taping.

If you are experiencing pain or discomfort as a result of your injury, it is always best to consider complimentary therapies to speed up the healing process and ultimately, give you more relief during the course of your treatment. 

Acupuncture is a system of complimentary medicine whereby fine needles are inserted into the skin at specific points of the body. This can be beneficial when addressing chronic and acute pain presentation and some soft tissue conditions.

In addition to acupuncture, we also offer taping. Our trained physiotherapists in Leeds can perform various taping techniques, including Kinesio taping. Taping can work very well alongside conventional physiotherapy interventions to help with athletic performance, restore joint stability, correct abnormal movement patterns and subsequently relieve pain.​

Taping Treatments

Taping, often referred to as strapping, is a skilled technique used by physiotherapists for rehabilitation or injury prevention.

Taping is most commonly used alongside other physio treatments to compliment existing treatment plans in place. Taping can be used to; restore joint stability, encourage normal movement, reduce pain and more. If you are unsure as to whether taping is a suitable treatment for you, our physiotherapists are pleased to offer advice. 

If you would like more information about taping or any of our other treatments, contact our physiotherapists today.


Acupuncture is a traditional approach to physiotherapy and is used by our team as a complimentary medicine. Acupuncture works to promote the healing process by restoring the balance of energy in the body. As a result, pain and inflammation can be relieved.

Before having any kind of acupuncture treatment, you will have a consultation with one of our specially trained physiotherapists who will recommend this particular treatment if they feel that you will benefit from it. Just some of the many benefits of acupuncture include but are not limited to; increased muscle length, swelling reduction, pain relief, reducing joint stiffness, relaxation and more. 

Acupuncture is performed by inserting very fine, individual needs at differing ‘trigger points’ on the body. These trigger points vary from patient to patient dependent upon symptoms. Contrary to popular belief, acupuncture is a painless treatment and can be very relaxing. 

If you are interested in finding out more about acupuncture and how this treatment may benefit you, please feel free to contact our physiotherapists today. You can reach us directly by calling 0113 268 7578 for advice or to book an appointment.

Does Acupuncture Hurt?

Many people can be put off acupuncture treatment because it involves needles and therefore, a lot assume that this is a painful treatment. This is a common misconception, as acupuncture actually has the opposite effect! The needles used for acupuncture are very thin and most people feel very little to no pain at all during and after the treatment. In fact, you are more likely to experience a tingling sensation when the needles are inserted.
