Acupuncture in West London
PRESENTLY ON SABBATICAL AND WILL RETURN TO PRACTICE IN W4 IN OCTOBER 2016
Acupuncture is a system of healing refined over 3,000 years of clinical experience as part of the traditional medicine of China, Japan and other Eastern countries.
In the West, acupuncture is often perceived as useful in helping people with headaches and relieving pain, but in Traditional Chinese Medicine all illness is considered the result of an energy imblance and therefore treatment is aimed at correcting the underlying cause as well as relieving symptoms. Many people therefore find that after treatment they have increased amounts of energy and an enhanced sense of well-being and vitality.
Although the World Health Organisation list:
. 28 conditions for which they say acupuncture has been proved to be an effective treatment
. 63 conditions for which they say the therapeutic effect of acupuncture has been shown but for which further proof is needed
. 9 conditions for which they say that although there are only individual controlled trials, acupuncture is worth trying because treatment by conventional and other therapies is difficult
the UK Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) have now banned references to most of these conditions by acupuncturists on their websites as they do not believe there is enough evudence to substantiate the World Health Organisation list. The World Health Organisation list can be found at:
