Acupuncture is a form of traditional Chinese medicine which has been developed over thousands of years. Fine needles are inserted in to specific points all around the body in channels known as meridians. The aim is to encourage the body to restore the natural balance and so restore health.
Acupuncture was introduced to the West in the 19th century by travellers returning from the East. In the 1960's schools and a regulatory body were established, ever since then regulatory standards have continued to improve as demand has increased. The main regulary body in britain today is The British Acupuncture Council (BAcC), who Acupuncturists at Chien Clinic are registered with.
There has been much research done into acupuncture, researchers have gone to great lengths and proven it can be effective for short term relief from back pain, knee pain, dental pain, nausea and migraines. There is ongoing research to prove its effectiveness for long term relief from the above mentioned symptoms and for the many ailments that it is still used for in China, as it has been for hundreds of years.
