Acupuncture is effective in the treatment of a wide range of conditions due to the fact that it can stimulate the body’s own healing process. Acupuncture is a part of Traditional Chinese Medicine which is a medicine system in its own right so can treat many different ailments. It can be used as a preventative measure when you feel generally ‘run down’ and also when you ‘feel unwell’, but you do not necessarily present with any symptoms – you just know you don’t feel ‘right’. Many patients notice not only changes to the condition they sought help for but also improvements with regard to their energy, confidence and quality of life. Because traditional acupuncture aims to treat the whole person rather than specific symptoms in isolation, it can be effective for a range of conditions. Acupuncturists treat the person, not just the condition which they have, so each patient’s treatment plan will be different. However, you can always ask Anne about similar patients’ experiences, to give you an idea of what to expect.
The World Health Organisation in 2003 recognised the effectiveness of Acupuncture for treating a range of conditions. For more information on this please click here.
In 2009 the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence recommended that acupuncture should be made available on the NHS, as a cost-effective short-term treatment for the management of early, persistent non-specific lower back pain. A few further problems Acupuncture can be used for, but not a complete list, are dental pain, nausea and vomiting, short-term relief of tension-type headache, temporary relief for osteoarthritis knee pain.
