A comprehensive review and analysis of controlled acupuncture clinical trials published by the World Health Organization (2003) lists around 100 diseases, conditions and symptoms for which acupuncture has been shown to have a therapeutic effect.

Since that time, hundreds more research studies of the clinical benefits of acupuncture have been reported.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence of the NHS recommends acupuncture for the prevention of chronic tension-type headaches and migraines in young people and adults (NICE Clinical Guideline 150, 2012) and for the treatment of non-specific chronic low back pain (NICE, Clinical Guideline 88). Acupuncture is now available on the NHS for some patients suffering from chronic pain.

Acupuncturist Judy Bowen-Jones has experience in treating the following conditions:

“I treat patients for a wide range of health issues. Acupuncture aims to treat the underlying causes of your condition as well as the symptoms. In some severe or irreversible conditions, such as COPD, that may not be achievable, but acupuncture may still help provide relief from symptoms, pain and anxiety. If you have any questions about the suitability of acupuncture for treating your condition, please do not hesitate to contact me. I will be happy to help”.
