British Acupuncture Council

Traditional Acupuncture

Chinese Medicine Explanation

The ancient Chinese believed that the body’s own energy force or ‘Qi’ (pronounced ‘chee’) travelled throughout the body along channels or ‘meridians’.  Based on traditional belief, if the meridians become obstructed, the Qi is unable to flow and can become deficient or excessive and this can result in pain or illness. Traditional acupuncturists believe that the Qi balance can be restored by stimulating specific points along the meridians, helping to restore balance and help you on the way to recovery.

The Chinese Medicine philosophy is also focussed on preventing illness and many people find that occasional ‘maintenance’ treatments may help enhance their general wellbeing. 

Many people first try acupuncture as a ‘last resort’ but are often quicker to return for treatment when other complaints arise. Acupuncture can help in an integrated approach and people often use it alongside their conventional medical treatment and with other therapies. 

The British Acupuncture Council interviewed one of our members Emma Cannon about what to expect from an acupuncture treatment. You can watch her interview here (February 2012).
