It is independently accredited and it’s standards are externally appraised
Iain is currently the ONLY acupuncturist in Bangor that is a member of this body.
Acupuncture – with a trained and fully qualified practitioner – is one of the safest and longest established forms of healthcare.
It is suitable for people of all ages and conditions – including pregnant women and children and is used very effectively alongside conventional medicine.
Acupuncture is widely used and accepted all over the world, both as a stand-alone treatment and in combination with other forms of medicine.
An acupuncture treatment involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body. Your acupuncturist will diagnose which combination of points is right for you after a detailed consultation covering every aspect of your health, lifestyle and symptoms.
What is the Evidence Base for Acupuncture?
Evidence of acupuncture’s effectiveness is growing as researchers evaluate the best ways to measure how the body responds to it. Around the world, clinical studies are being conducted to understand how acupuncture can be beneficial for many more conditions. You can read factsheets about the latest acupuncture research at www.acupuncture.org.uk
Acupuncture is considered to be beneficial for a wide range of conditions. NICE, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence recommends acupuncture on the NHS for back pain, migraines and headaches. The respected Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network (SIGN) recommends acupuncture for chronic pain. Because an acupuncture treatment is designed to affect your whole body, not just your symptoms, you may notice other niggling problems resolve during a course of treatment.
I am happy to discuss how acupuncture can help you in a free consultation over the phone.
