How can acupuncture help Chronic Illness?

When you have had an ongoing pain or condition that affects your life on a daily basis, acupuncture may have a useful part to play in keeping symptoms under control.

Acupuncture is considered to be beneficial for a wide range of conditions. NICE, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence recommends acupuncture for migraines and headaches. The respected Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network (SIGN) recommends acupuncture for chronic pain, including low back pain and knee pain.

Because an acupuncture treatment is designed to affect your whole body, not just your symptoms, you may notice other niggling problems resolve during a course of treatment.

Each treatment is uniquely tailored to your needs and condition.

Acupuncture may help with the following chronic health conditions… 

  • Low back pain

  • Headache/Migraine

  • Respiratory problems

  • Digestive problems

  • PMS and period pain
