What Acupuncture Can Treat
Acupuncture can be used to treat almost any condition
The ancient Chinese used acupuncture as a complete system of medicine. As its aim is to restore equilibrium in the body, it tackles the underlying cause of disease, rather than just the symptoms.
Acupuncture has a lot of press regarding its effectiveness in treating musculoskeletal pain and other forms of chronic pain. In practice, however, I treat a far wider range of conditions, from anxiety to infertility.
Stress play an enormous role in the health of many adults today. Many people are surprised at how relaxing an acupuncture treatment can be, often reporting a better quality of sleep as one of the firsts benefits noted.
I have had additional training in treating anxiety and was involved in research by Anxiety UK and the British Acupuncture Council to look at the effectiveness of acupuncture in treating anxiety.
The British Acupuncture Council produces a range of fact sheets on a range of conditions, giving a summary of all the research and benefits of acupuncture.
