Acupucture at Beversbrook Medical Centre
Acupuncture is a method of encouraging the body to promote natural healing and to improve functioning. This is done by
inserting needles and applying heat or electrical stimulation at very precise acupuncture points. The improved energy and
biochemical balance produced by acupuncture results in stimulating the body's natural healing abilities, and in promoting physical and emotional well-being. Traditionally used in Chinese
medicine, acupuncture is now recognised as a modern day therapy. Currently, the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) recommends acupuncture as a treatment option for
lower back pain. NICE makes this recommendation on the basis of scientific evidence. Read the NICE 2009 guidelines on low back pain (PDF, 980kb).
