Acupuncturists see people with a similar range of conditions to that which a conventional Western doctor would see, from physical to mental and emotional problems. In its 5,000 year history, Traditional Chinese Acupuncture has treated every disease known to humanity. Results depend on age, constitution, as well as the type and severity of disease.
If you have an unresolved problem with your health, why not give acupuncture a try. Peter will be pleased to answer your telephone, text or email queries.
What can be Treated?
Acupuncture and Fertility
Women undergoing fertility treatment could have their chances of success boosted by acupuncture.
German researchers said they have increased success rates by almost 50% in women having in vitro fertilisation (IVF).
A report published in the journal of Fertility and Sterility found the pregnancy rate in the group receiving acupuncture was 42.5%, compared to the group which did not receive the therapy, where the rate was 26.3%.
You may wish to come to acupuncture for fertility problems in preference to IVF. Especially if you prefer non-chemical therapies.
Acupuncture very effective states new research
A new report into the effectiveness of complementary therapies which are commonly used for treating arthritis and other musculoskeletal conditions was recently undertaken by Arthritis Research UK.
Twenty-five therapies were considered in the report. Each therapy was scored according to its effectiveness on a scale of one (little or no evidence that it was effective) to five (good evidence that it was effective), based on published data from clinical trials. Effectiveness was measured in terms of improvements in pain, disability or quality of life. In addition, the safety of each therapy was graded either green, amber or red.
Acupuncture was found to be most effective for osteoarthritis, low back pain and fibromyalgia.
Copies of the full reports are available from Arthritis Research UK.
