Find an acupuncturist...

For healthcare professionals

Traditional acupuncture is growing in popularity as more and more people experience its health benefits for themselves.

The BAcC is keen to bridge the gap between traditional acupuncturists and the western medical community. We believe that combining our strengths can benefit patients as well as reducing costs for the NHS. Systems of integrated medicine are well established in China, the USA and many other countries. In the UK some BAcC members already work within the NHS and integrated clinics. More and more studies demonstrate that traditional acupuncture is especially effective when used to complement various aspects of western healthcare.

‘I would consider the acupuncture treatment I received to be the most effective of every treatment option I’ve ever tried in my life at reducing my pain and increasing my quality of life, as well as the quickest in producing results. I was able to stop taking all my pain medications while receiving acupuncture and was even able to try a few physical activities (such as yoga) that have caused me pain in the past. I only wish I could continue to receive acupuncture as I believe it’s the one treatment with results that would allow me to work full time.'
