What can Acupuncture and Tui Na massage treat?
Both acupuncture and tui na massage can effectively treat a wide range of conditions.

There is now good scientific evidence for acupuncture's effectiveness in relieving pain in arthritis, for example of the knee and hip, as well as back pain. It is also useful in many other painful conditions, including migraine, menstrual period pain and some sports injuries.

Acupuncture and tui na massage can effectively relieve the nausea associated with surgery, pregnancy and chemotherapy and is also used in some bowel disorders, urinary problems, asthma, hay fever, stress and addictions. It may also aid in recovery after a stroke and can turn 'breech' babies the right way round in the womb in some women during their first pregnancy.

There is no evidence that acupuncture can treat cancer, though it could be used effectively for pain relief.

Is Acupuncture safe?
Acupuncture needles are sterile and disposable: each needle is used only once. All members of the British Acupuncture Council observe a Code of Practice which lays down stringent standards of hygiene and sterilisation for needles and other equipment. These procedures have been approved by the Department of Health and provides protection against the transmission of infectious diseases.

Acupuncture is remarkably safe when performed by a properly qualified practitioner. However, occasional side effects include an increase in pain (usually only temporary), bruising and dizziness.

Special precautions need to be taken in pregnancy so it is important to inform your acupuncturist if you are, or suspect that you might be, pregnant.
