What conditions benefit from Acupuncture?

We say that Acupuncture aims to help in a very wide range of conditions.  We treat the whole body including physical, mental and emotional issues.  People have been using Acupuncture for over 2000 years well before we started assigning labels to disease.

Research tends to indicate that pain from Muscular Skeletal issues, migraines, Female/Male fertility, and addictions are some of the most common requests.


In terms of assessing its effectiveness for specific conditions there have been hundreds of clinical trials in the western world and thousands of trails in the Far East.


The World Health Organisation  ( WHO ) has published a list of conditions that they say in their opinion have been seen to respond to Acupuncture. The National Institute of Clinical Excellence ( NICE ) have made recommendations that Acupuncture is effective  for pain relief along with other top level authorities have endorsed the use of Acupuncture.
