The information below gives an overview but is by no means comprehensive. The conditions that acupuncture treats are far reaching and the reasons that people seek acupuncture vary widely, it can for instance, be for a specific condition such as insomnia or IBS or as preventative maintenance treatment to provide a general sense of well-being.
Please contact Jacqueline for further information and for any condition that you may be considering treatment for.
The World Health Organisation have published a PDF that provides an extensive list of conditions that can be treated with Acupuncture and which have been tested in controlled clinical trials. Please see the linkspage for further information.
The growing popularity of acupuncture has gained a boost in recent years from NICE, the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence, which has endorsed acupuncture treatment for non-specific back pain, and as a treatment for migraine and tension type headaches.
