Acupuncture is increasingly popular and it is now accepted as an effective treatment for a range of conditions.
Acupuncture is also very safe and generally painless and most people find acupuncture to be very relaxing. Generally, traditional Chinese practitioners in particular tend to be far more subtle and gentle in their needle application than people who do dry needling of trigger points.
Research in the British Medical Journal has shown efficacy in treating women with fertility problems, menopause, sleep disturbance and facial paralysis. The NHS recommend its use for back and knee pain as well as headaches and migraines. The World Health Organisation recognise its use in insomnia, prostatitis, kidney pain, period pain and hypertension.
The use of acupuncture across the globe is recognised for many conditions, the idea of a holistic therapy is that it treats the person with the disease and although acupuncture is not for everyone it is a very effective way to restore your health.
