What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is one of the longest established forms of healthcare in the world. It originated in China approximately 2,500 years ago and is now practised across the globe. 

In acupuncture the focus is on the individual, rather than just an isolated complaint. The physical, emotional, and mental aspects of life are seen as interdependent. Acupuncturists use subtle diagnostic techniques, such as taking the pulse and observing the tongue that have been developed and refined for thousands of years. Treatment involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body to regulate the flow of ‘qi’ along pathways in the body known as ‘meridians’. 

For more information about acupuncture and current scientific research please refer to the British Acupuncture Council.

Why go to an acupuncturist?

Many people have acupuncture to help with specific symptoms or to relieve specific pains like osteoarthritis of the knee while others use acupuncture because they feel generally unwell and have no obvious diagnosis.  Some people choose acupuncture simply to enhance their feeling of well-being and most feel very relaxed and calm after treatment.  It can be effective alongside conventional medicine.
