Research

For many years traditional acupuncture has treated an individual by addressing not only their presenting symptoms but by diagnosing in great detail and depth, which enables the practitioner to search for the root cause of their existing condition, thus striving for harmony within the patient, mind and body.

Acupuncture has been studied and researched throughout its evolution within China. In Western culture acupuncture does not have the same history and as a result has not carried the same credibility.
New research has now started to provide quantifiable data, with regard to the positive health effects and benefits from acupuncture treatment. The evidence produced via these studies is growing and creating a bridge between acupuncture and conventional medicine.


The British Acupuncture Council (BAcC) are active within this research and data collection process, this applies to the effects of acupuncture on specific conditions. Research helps to expand on traditional Chinese theory and provides a better understanding of how acupuncture works from a scientific perspective. The BAcC have developed The Acupuncture Research Resource Centre (ARRC) to supply a current specialist research programme hosted by The Centre for Complementary Healthcare and Integrated Medicine (CCHIM) located at Thames valley University.
