Treatment involves taking an in-depth history to build a picture of how the energy in your body is functioning. This diagnosis is specific to you as an individual and treatments are tailor-made for you.
Patterns of disharmony frequently correlate to a conventional medical condition. For more information, the World Health Organisation has published a list of the benefits of acupuncture. For up-to-date scientific research into the effectiveness of acupuncture, The British Acupuncture Council produces fact sheets.
Having come up with a diagnosis, the points of the body are selected for treatment. For patients who are needle-phobic, acupressure can be used instead. The ancient arts of Tuina massage and Guasha can also be used to stimulate the Qi of the body instead of, or in conjunction with, acupuncture needles.
As treatment progresses, different points and treatments are used to help regain the body's natural equilibrium.
