Rodger has trained in both western and traditional acupuncture and feels it complements the conventional physiotherapy well. There is a huge volume of good quality evidence supporting the validity of acupuncture for the holistic management of the patient – not just pain control.

Salil Das and Perry Cayley are also trained to use western acupuncture dry needling/Trigger point acupuncture as part of their physiotherapy modalities.
