About Acupuncture London

Over the past four decades acupuncture has spread worldwide, which has encouraged the further development of this ancient Chinese therapy, particularly through studies from modern medical perspectives and research methodologies. This has included the development of electro-acupuncture, auricular acupuncture for drug addiction and battlefield pain relief, acupuncture anaesthesia used in dentistry as well as in some surgical procedures in China.

Acupuncture points are stimulated with fine needles to trigger a healing response in the patient. Specific points along the acupuncture channels are chosen according to tradtional theory and anatomical findings to rebalance the flow of Qi in the channels and bring about healing. One way of thinkning about it is to see the acupunctutre points as sending messages to the central nervous system, probably via the fascia, which stimulate or encourage an innate healing response.
