For fifty years, as Oriental Medicine therapies were disseminated in the West, acupuncturists listed a number of “western pathologies” to help people understand what support they could find in an Oriental medicine clinic. However, according to the new Advertising Standards Authority’s (ASA) guidelines, complementary medicine therapists are no longer allowed to list the pathologies they can treat. Therefore, despite the fact that acupuncture is increasingly practised as a stand alone therapy and in conjunction with western medicine, I am not allowed to mention the wide range of conditions that people in the last 2000 years have improved or healed from with Acupuncture. Please feel free to
- access on line (pdf format) the conclusions drawn by the WHO (World Health Organisation) regarding the efficacy and virtual absence of contraindications of acupuncture;
- gain a deeper unbiased understanding about acupuncture benefits by following this link to the BAcC web site where detailed fact sheets provide summaries of research relative to specific conditions;
- access Hugh MacPherson’s research projects
- in alternative contact me in order to discuss your problems in person.
