Acupuncture is has become a widely-used complementary medicine treatment in the UK. Many acupuncture speciliasts treat patients for a wide range of conditions and increasing numbers of healthcare practitioners such as physiotherapists, osteopaths, chiropractors and naturopaths have become qualified in acupuncture in order to incorporate its benefits into their treatment regimes.
Acupuncture is an holistic approach to health based on ancient Chinese medicine which has continued to evolve and improve even throughout the last 10 years. Medical acupuncture is a more recent development in Western countries and is practised most often by doctors and physiotherapists.
Historically, acupuncture has been used as part of a holistic approach to the diagnosis and treatment of disease as well as for improving general health and well-being.
A number of the physiotherapists recommended by the PhysioSite Network are qualified to use acupuncture treatment; many other physios have specialist acupuncturists available at their clinics to treat patients.
