Acupuncture is perhaps the greatest success story in terms of Eastern medicine transferring to the West. It stimulates the body’s own healing mechanism and can be used in a wide array of problems. Pain is a well known reason for using acupuncture. However it may be of interest to know it can be used in sleep disturbance and stress. It is very helpful to women with painful periods who don’t want to use the 'pill'. Many menopausal women who do not want to use Hormone Replacement Therapy and suffer night sweats and hot flushes can use Acupuncture to gain control over these uncomfortable symptoms.
It is a beneficial addition to an IVF programme and is being used regularly now. More mundane but nasty things like constipation respond very well to it too. Many skin conditions change dramatically with acupuncture and it can help to reduce wrinkles. Widely used in China (where a billion people can't be wrong), we have embraced it here in the West to good effect.
Many conditions which do not respond to conventional therapies respond well to Acupuncture. Acupuncture has been scientifically proven to be effective and is being used more and more in conventional medicine.
