The Benefits of Acupuncture
When practised by a fully qualified acupuncturist, acupuncture is one of the safest therapies on offer in the UK and has very few side effects.
Unlike most conventional medicines it can be used for many symptoms and conditions simultaneously and people often choose acupuncture because they feel unwell but have no obvious diagnosis. Others use acupuncture as a preventive measure to maintain good health.
Very often, people return to acupuncture again and again because they find it so beneficial and relaxing providing them with an overall general sense of well-being. The World Health Organisation lists a wide variety of diseases or disorders for which acupuncture therapy has been tested in controlled clinical trials including:
· Allergies/ hay fever
· Back and neck pain and sciatica
· Blood pressure and circulation problems
· Fertility, pregnancy and post-natal difficulties
· Vascular dementia
