The path to improved health through acupuncture is well travelled. For over 2000 years millions of people have been having acupuncture treatment worldwide. In Britain there are now over 3000 professional acupuncturists who are
members of the British Acupuncture Council.
Acupuncture originated thousands of years ago, its roots based in Chinese rural society, yet it is still capable of treating health problems arising from our 21st century lifestyle. We now know that it can regulate brain chemicals, such as endorphins, and strengthen the immune system. Traditionally it is described as regulating energy to improve body function.
