Who has acupuncture?
Many people use acupuncture to help with specific symptoms like poor sleep and tiredness, constipation, painful periods, headache and backache or with a wide variety of health conditions such as asthma, shingles, tennis elbow and arthritis. Others choose acupuncture as a preventive measure to strengthen their constitution, help with emotional issues, or because they just feel generally unwell. Acupuncture is considered suitable for all ages including babies, children and the elderly. It can be very effective when combined with conventional medicine.
