Acupuncture in London, St Albans, Bedford & Hitchin

Are you seeking alternative therapy for your ailments? Acupuncture can be a fantastic complementary therapy to aid your aches and pains.
According to traditional theory there are Meridian Lines running all over the body. It was believed that in a healthy person energy ran along these lines without hindrance. When a person becomes unwell, it was thought that channels become blocked, and the energy was unable to flow freely. Acupuncture needles were inserted into points along these lines, and stimulated at intervals to try to help the energy flow.

Now, acupuncture is one of the most common alternative medical practices in Europe. Acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin needles through the patient’s skin at specific points on the body, placed at various depths. This treatment can be very effective in controlling pain and can work alongside traditional medicines or as an alternative. As more and more physicians accept acupuncture, a wide range of illnesses and conditions are being considered for acupuncture treatment.
