Research and links

Please visit the British Acupuncture Council website for fact sheets on research into acupuncture working with various conditions.

The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) gave guidelines to the NHS in 2009 recommending acupuncture for non-specific lower back pain.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) published a document in 2003 containing a list of ailments for which acupuncture can be useful for, and supports the list with reported clinical trials. Please see link. ‘Acupuncture: Review and Analysis of Controlled Clinical Trials' .


Ryan – Sciatica

“I have suffered with attacks of sciatica for years and if it is bad it really affects my day. Having acupuncture makes the condition more manageable and it has also given me more energy. It is very reassuring that a full investigation into your whole health is taken before treatment starts. The treatment is professional and I feel cared for.”

Lesley – Stress and anxiety

“I felt improvement from the first treatment and although I came for treatment for stress, acupuncture has also improved my sleep and I feel an overall benefit. I feel I can manage daily challenges better and surprisingly my psoriasis has also totally cleared up. I would recommend acupuncture to anyone because even if you have treatment for one thing, acupuncture seems to balance other areas of your health.”

Acupuncture Care Clinic mission statement: “Working with our patients we aim to listen and support, inform and treat each patient based on Traditional Chinese Medicine approaches. Together we aim for improved outcomes by achieving balance and enabling patients to take an active role in their own health and healing.”
