Acupuncture - Common conditions

Acupuncture is considered to be beneficial for a wide range of illnesses and symptoms and is suitable for everyone. Some people will come for clearly defined complaints such as back pain whilst others come for their general well being. A growing body of evidence-based clinical research shows that traditional acupuncture safely treats a wide range of common health problems.

Many people seek treatment to help with a specific condition but to an acupuncturist it’s about the whole person rather than just treating the named condition. A traditional acupuncturist's main focus is always on correcting the underlying cause of illness rather than just treating the symptoms of the main complaint. A traditional acupuncturist will always take a comprehensive case history looking at all aspects of your life before they are able to give advice on how acupuncture can help.
