Acupuncture is one of the oldest and safest medical systems used all over the world to restore, promote and maintain health.
It is used both as a stand-alone therapy or in combination with other forms of medicine to help treat a wide range of acute and chronic conditions.
Acupuncture can help with specific health conditions, such as pain associated with osteoarthritis of the knee. It can also be used to help with more general symptoms, such as nausea. Treatment can also be used as a preventative measure to help maintain good health or to improve well-being.
Traditional Acupuncture works by helping to restore balance to the body’s vital energy or ‘Qi’. It involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body.
Acupuncture treatment is aimed at treating the root cause of a condition as well as the main symptoms. A holistic therapy, traditional Chinese Acupuncture treats the whole person – body and mind – and can be effective for a range of conditions.
Since 2009, the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) has recommended that Acupuncture should be made available on the NHS, as a cost-effective short-term treatment for the management of early, persistent non-specific lower back pain.
