How Acupuncture Works

A question that I am frequently asked is 'how does acupuncture work?' and no wonder! After all, it is amazing that tiny needles placed just under the skin can help improve and maintain health.

Acupuncture has so much more to offer than simple pain relief and is safe to use alongside, and in many situations instead of, conventional western medicine.

This 2 minute video offers a clear explanation of how acupuncture works.

Why membership of the British Acupuncture Council is so important

Unfortunately there is currently no statutory regulation for complementary and alternative medicine (with the exception of osteopathy and chiropractic). It is therefore essential to ensure that the acupuncturist you choose is suitably qualified and working to a high standard of competence and hygiene.

With over 3000 members the British Acupuncture Council is the UK's largest regulatory body for practitioners of traditional acupuncture and maintains extremely high standards of education, discipline, ethics and practice. Its aim is to ensure the health and safety of the public at all times.

When you choose a BAcC member you can be sure of:

  • a minimum of three years training to degree level including anatomy and physiology and other appropriate elements of western medicine.

  • adherence to the Council's Codes of Safe Practice and Professional Conduct.

  • compliance with current health and safety legislation.

  • full medical malpractice and public/products liabiltity insurance cover.

  • up-to-date practice skills maintained by mandatory continuing professional development.

The Professional Standards Authority created the Accredited Voluntary Register in order that members of the public can choose the services of practitioners who are on a register that has been independently assessed and approved.
