Medical Acupuncture

What is medical acupuncture?  Medical acupuncture involves the painless insertion of fine needles into certain points of the body for the relief of pain and encouragement of self-healing. The needles are very fine so it does not in any way feel like having blood taken or an injection.


Medical acupuncture is widely used these days by doctors, nurses, physiotherapists and osteopaths and is generally regarded as part of conventional medicine. The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) specifically recommends the use of acupuncture for lower back pain. Medical acupuncture is a western adaptation of Chinese acupuncture using western, not eastern, understanding and the principles of evidence-based medicine.
