Acupuncture is an ancient form of healthcare which originated in the Far East several thousand years ago and is now practised all over the world. Acupuncture encourages the body to heal itself.
There is an increasing awareness and growing recognition in the west of the use of acupuncture as an effective treatment for a wide range of conditions.
To discover how acupuncture might help you, see a selection of evidence-based fact sheets from the British Acupuncture Council's website or look at the World Health Organisation's document “Acupuncture: Review and Analysis of Reports on Controlled Clinical Trials” which lists the range of diseases and disorders that acupuncture has been proven to treat effectively. Please refer to the "Acupuncture" page for these links.
