Could acupuncture help?

Perhaps you have heard about acupuncture but aren't sure whether it would be the right sort of treatment for your problem or condition.

First, let's dispel a myth.  Acupuncture is not a belief system.  In other words you don't need to "believe in it" for it to work.  Acupuncture is an established system of medicine based on a sound theoretical framework and supported by clinical practice.

Acupuncture is a tried and tested system of traditional medicine which has been used in China and other eastern cultures for thousands of years to restore, promote and maintain good health.  It's benefits are now widely acknowledged all over the world and in the past decade traditional acupuncture has begun to feature more prominently in mainstream healthcare in the UK.

Acupuncture can help a wide range of physical and emotional problems: the focus being on improving overall well-being as well as the treatment of specific symptoms.  This means that treatment with acupuncture can often succeed where conventional treatments can offer no relief.

The British Acupuncture Council provides a useful A-Z of conditions (including separate factsheets) here.  Not every condition can be listed and Sue and Anna are always happy to chat on the phone or by email.  They also offer a free 15 minute consultation for this purpose.
