Acupuncture is a system of healing that has been used in China and the Far East for thousands of years. According to traditional Chinese philosophy our health is dependent on the smooth flow of our body's energy. This energy, referred to as Qi, can easily become disturbed or imbalanced and there are many aspects to people's lives which cause these imbalances. Acupuncture aims to address the imbalances using the insertion of very fine needles along the channels of the body encouraging the body to return to a state of balance and health.

Traditional acupuncturists are trained to use subtle diagnostic techniques that have been developed and refined over thousands of years. Acupuncture is always focused on the individual rather than just their main complaint and all symptoms are seen in relation to each other. Because every patient is unique, two people with the same western diagnosis will each receive different acupuncture treatments.

Acupuncture - Common conditions

Acupuncture is considered to be beneficial for a wide range of illnesses and symptoms and is suitable for everyone. Some people will come for clearly defined complaints such as back pain whilst others come for their general wellbeing. A growing body of evidence-based clinical research shows that traditional acupuncture safely treats a wide range of common health problems.

Many people will present with a particular condition that they would like help with but to an acupuncturist it's about the whole person rather than just treating the specific condition. A traditional acupuncturist's main focus is always on correcting the underlying cause of illness rather than just treating the symptoms of the main complaint.
Many people like to know if acupuncture can help for a specific condition; further information and research on how acupuncture can help specific conditions can be found on the British Acupuncture Council website:
