Scientific understanding of Traditional Acupuncture is developing and refining all the time as more and more research into its effectiveness takes place. The World Health Organisation has recognised Acupuncture to be an effective treatment for a wide range of conditions. Whilst the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) continue to make recommendations for Acupuncture as an effective treatment for Lower Back pain and other painful conditions.
Most importantly however Traditional Acupuncture makes sense of your condition by understanding your signs and symptoms in their unique relationship to how your body works rather than by a named Western diagnosis.
Many people choose to continue having Acupuncture even after their original reason for seeking treatment has been resolved, in order to maintain good health, find a sense of well-being and to avoid illness. Acupuncture can also be safely combined with western drug therapies to treat people experiencing acute or long term chronic conditions, reducing side effects of medication and enhancing often essential and long term drug regimes.
