Because acupuncture is an evolving science your treatment may include some of the more recent approaches including electro-acupuncture, auricular or battleground acupuncture (as the name suggests devised for military use and highly effective for acute pain). These are in addition to 'tried and tested' Oriental protocols including the use of warming herbs (moxibustion)and cupping.

How Does The Treatment Work?
Natures Way Of Healing
The simple answer is, on many levels. We know that the same effects can also be seen when acupuncture is used on animals and it is widely felt that in terms of efficacy we have only just begun to scratch the surface. Acupuncture may well be rooted in history but it has a cutting edge future as its possibilities are increasingly understood. It is is currently being brought 'onstream,' by the NHS and ultimately, I believe it will be subject to the same regulation as other medical disciplines.
It is known that the needles releases the body's own endorphins. These are the pain killing and the 'feel-good' chemicals. It is also known that needling the body improves immune response via proliferation of white blood cells. In regard to pain, it is theorised that acupuncture may act as a 'closed gate' in regard to the transmission of pain messages from the brain. For pain relief, the needles would appear to act on two levels, locally and centrally.
The needles are also capable of directing energy to where it is needed. At a more prosaic level, blood tests show that the needles instigate the release of white blood cell and endorphins. It is also believed that the nervous reaction caused by puncturing the skin as a 'gate,' to close off pain. Indeed, such treatment within the NHS is now widely used by doctors and physiotherapists, albeit in the more limited 'Western' manner and is endorsed by The World Health Organisation. The organisational body NICE, also recommends that the treatment is offered as an alternative form of back pain relief.
Needling is known to be one of the safest treatment modalities known to mankind. There is a small chance of minor bruising, however this very quickly disappears.
Believe it or not the needles actually feel highly pleasant. This is because the needles act to release the bodies own 'feel good' endorphins. There is an initial sensation where the extremely fine needle penetrates the skin. Afterwards, other than the qi sensation (a temporary mild ache or tingling) there is a feeling of deep relaxation. People have been known to fall asleep!
Acupuncture is currently used for pain relief, including back pain, headache, migraine, arthritis etc. It is also effective for anxiety related disorders including insomnia and for the support of fertility and ivf. Given the healing properties of the needles, acupuncture may also be used for cosmetic purposes, including facial acupuncture.
