The British Medical Journal (BMJ) is now publishing Acupuncture In Medicine (AIM) due to the increased quantity of research going into acupuncture.

In 2009, the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) recommended that acupuncture should be made available on the NHS as a cost-effective short-term treatment for the management of early, persistent non-specific lower back pain. The NHS website has a page about the evidence for the effectiveness of acupuncture.


Acupuncture has been proven to help treat conditions such as dental pain, nausea and vomiting, as well as giving temporary relief to pain associated with osteoarthritis of the knee, and tension-type headaches.

Feel free to call or email  Eleanor to ask how acupuncture may be able to help you & to give you an idea of what to expect. Many people return to acupuncture again & again because they find it so beneficial.
