Acupuncture Research

Acupuncture Research Organisations

Evidence on how and why Acupuncture works is now well documented. There is now understanding and evidence of the physiological mechanisms involved during and after acupuncture. There are also many studies and clinical trials which demonstrate what can help treat conditions. Good quality information and investigation into acupuncture supports practice and promotes further fact-finding in this field.

Below are links to Acupuncture organisations. Please get in touch with me if there are specific conditions or mechanisms you are interested in as I am happy to advise which organisations and databases may have the information you are looking for.  

“Now is a really exciting time as there are many clinic trials and a growing body of evidence and investigation into Acupuncture. We now understand the effectiveness of Acupuncture and how and why it works so well to heal the human body”.
