Thank you for visiting the British Acupuncture Council

During the current lockdown our members are able to practise, subject to regional government guidelines and the British Acupuncture Council Covid-19 secure guidelines. Some members have decided to close for the time being, but the majority are still practising.

All of our members are qualified to decide who, when and if they should treat – and for the time being, PPE and other safety measures will be in place when you go for acupuncture.

Rest assured, we’re doing our very best to help keep acupuncture clinics open, for all of our members and their patients.

For more information contact your local practitioner or email us on
