People visit an acupuncturist for a variety of reasons, often with an injury, a diagnosis of a specific medical condition or with a collection of symptoms from which they are seeking relief. 

Occasionally patients are looking to enhance their fertility, their athletic performance or simply boost their energy levels and wellbeing. It is also increasingly common for people to seek acupuncture as a preventative measure or as a natural beauty treatment.

At Jo Curle Acupuncture, I treat people, not conditions, considering the body and mind holistically and aiming to target the root cause of the symptoms. Having said that, the evidence base for acupuncture for specific conditions is consistently expanding. There is currently robust evidence endorsed by NICE, for the acupuncture treatment of: 

  • Low back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Migraine headaches
  • Tension headaches
  • Osteoarthritis of the knee
  • Nausea & vomiting
  • Dental pain
  • TMJ (Temporomandibular) pain
  • Overactive bladder syndrome

In addition, acupuncture is regularly sought for many other common conditions, including; hayfever, asthma, anxiety, IBS, sciatica, frozen shoulder, menstrual and menopausal symptoms and infertility. The British Acupuncture Council supply comprehensive downloadable factsheets for more detailed information on acupuncture for a wide variety of conditions.
