The World Health Organisation recognises Acupuncture as an effective treatment strategy for many health conditions including but not limited to: lower back pain, allergic rhinitis, adverse reactions to chemotherapy and radiotherapy, dysmenorrhea, headache, postoperative pain and nausea, osteoarthritis of the knee, shoulder pain, tennis elbow and sciatica.

Acupuncture involves inserting fine single use needles into specific acupoints around to body to elicit a response that may be local or away from the actual needled area.

This makes Acupuncture unique as it is based on foundations and principles developed over thousands of years to understand the connection between the human body and its environment.

A trained Acupuncturist understands the physiology of the human body based on Channel Theory and the hundreds of Acupuncture points located on the many Meridians around the body.

As each patient is unique the treatment programs developed by Acumend are dependent upon the signs and symptoms and therefore may change from treatment to treatment.

Depending on our findings, other Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) treatments may be incorporated such as Herbal Formula, Tui Na (massage), Gua Sha (Channel Scrubbing), Cupping, Qi Gong and TCM specific dietary advice.
