Traditional acupuncture is a healthcare system based on ancient principles which go back nearly two thousand years.

Traditional acupuncturists believe that the underlying principle of treatment is that illness and pain occur when the body’s qi, or vital energy, cannot flow freely. There can be many reasons for this; emotional and physical stress, poor nutrition, infection or injury are among the most common. By inserting ultra-fine sterile needles into specific acupuncture points, a traditional acupuncturist seeks to re-establish the free flow of qi to restore balance and trigger the body’s natural healing response.

Consequently acupuncture can help a wide range of conditions: from pain and injury, to hormonal or immune imbalances – wherever it is possible for the body to heal itself acupuncture can facilitate this. The UK’s leading professional body, The British Acupuncture Council, has list of conditions helped by acupuncture and explains what you can expect during a treatment:

Acupuncture is one of the safest medical treatments, both conventional and complementary, on offer in the UK. It is also deeply relaxing and nourishing, as well as effective.
