What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is an aspect of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Acupuncture originated in China around 3,500 years ago and remains one of the oldest, most commonly used systems of healing in the world. Nowadays, science can explain its effectiveness.

Acupuncture can help to promote healing by offering a small electrical prompt to the body to restore homeostasis & balance. It promotes circulation in the body and improves function where needed.

To many people it may come as a surprise but acupuncture can act as a natural analgesic and reduce pain by interrupting pain signaling. It can also reduce inflammation.

How Can Acupuncture Help?

In June 2000, the British Medical Association offered its opinion on acupuncture through its published report: Acupuncture: Efficacy, Safety and Practice.  The scientific benefits of acupuncture were acknowledged, and the association recommended that the treatment should be incorporated into the National Health Service.

New research shows acupuncture’s efficacy in treating common health issues with quanitifiable results. Acupuncture therapy has been tested in controlled clinical trials for a wide variety of diseases and disorders listed by the World Health Organisation (WHO). Click this link to see which diseases listed by the WHO that acupuncture can be used to treat.

 

Acupuncture is helpful for cutaneous inflammatory & immune responses, and proven effective for wound healing, rheumatoid arthritis & eczema, modulating non-specific immune reactions (atopic allergies), modulating pain experience for chronic neuropathic pain syndromes; changes to blood coagulation (rheumatoid arthritis, gout & psoriasis), enhancing vasodilatory response, increasing IVF implantation success rates and improving heart microcirculation & blood pressure.
