Acupuncture has been used over 100s of years to treat a range of conditions. We work on the theories behind traditional Chinese Medicine and how the body is viewed when it is out of balance. There is more and more research that is being done to try and discover an explanation behind how acupuncture works.
Want to know if it has been studied for your particular condition or symptoms? The British Acupuncture Council has put together some fantastic Fact Sheets which look at the research that has been done. You can find more information here.

Another great resource is Evidence Based Acupuncture where there is a wealth of information on research about how acupuncture works.
Of course this doesn’t cover everything – and we’d be happy to speak to you some more to see how acupuncture might be able to help you. You can email us here or schedule an appointment to join us for a cup of tea and we can talk some more.
