Fact Sheets

The British Acupuncture Council has produced a series of fact sheets to provide accurate and unbiased general information for a variety of conditions (listed below). They provide summaries of research and how acupuncture may be beneficial. The World Health Organisation also provides a list of conditions for which acupuncture has been tested in controlled clinical trials. You should always consult your GP if you have any concerns or talk to a registered acupuncturist.
