Acupuncture at The Brighton Acupuncture Studio

Traditional acupuncture is a healthcare system based on the ancient principles of Chinese Medicine which go back nearly two thousand years. It has a very positive model of good health and function, and looks at pain and illness as signs that the body is out of balance. The overall aim of acupuncture treatment, then, is to restore the body’s equilibrium. What makes this system so uniquely suited to modern life is that physical, emotional and mental are seen as interdependent, and reflect what many people perceive as the connection between the different aspects their lives.

We use very fine, painless, disposable needles for every treatment and combine acupuncture with other therapies including tuina, cupping and moxibustion, to ensure you get the results you want.

Acupuncture is increasingly being tested by conventional trials. Currently, the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) recommends acupuncture as a treatment option for lower back pain. NICE makes this recommendation on the basis of scientific evidence. Read the NICE 2009 guidelines on low back pain (PDF, 980kb).

The British Acupuncture Council (BAcC) produces fact sheets to provide accurate and unbiased general information for a variety of conditions. They provide summaries of research and how acupuncture may be beneficial.
