Physiotherapy for hot flushes?

Post categories:

Apparently using acupuncture to treat hot flushes is a real discovery and is helping many cancer sufferers overcome the problems caused by hormone changes after operations like mastectomies.

My guest today is a physio to some of our biggest ice skating champions and will be rinkside during the European Figure Skating championships at the end of this month.

She did her Masters in sports injury, particularly focussing on neck and shoulders - how incredibly specialised is that? Yet Julia Ferreira - who works at the Princess Margaret Hospital in Windsor - also finds acupuncture incredibly useful in her work with ice dancers as well as the rest of us!

She's the official physio for the GB team. So watch out for her at the side of the rink when the figure skating is on the telly. You never know, we might see her in action with her needles!
