Wimpole Street acupuncture clinic is a well-established clinic in Wimpole Street, London, W1. It is located in the heart of central London a few minutes walk from Oxford Circus and Bond Street underground stations.
Accupuncture originates from traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), an ancient holistic medicine originating in East Asia thousands of years ago. It uses very fine needles that are inserted into specific points along the body to activate the energy there and regulate the flow of qi and blood which helps to restore health benefits.
There has been much research into how it works. Researchers have found that it works on different aspects of the brain and the lymphatic system.
It has a long history with recorded use dating back over 3,000 years. It is used all over East Asia and not just in China.
Over the last 20 years, it has seen massive popularity in western countries such as the UK. Now, physiotherapists, chiropractors, doctors, nurses, osteopaths and even masseurs offer it as there is no regulation in the UK.
Is acupuncture safe?
It has been found to be safe when given by a qualified acupuncturist, such as members of the British Acupuncture Council (BAC), even in pregnancy.
What can acupuncture treat?
In East Asia, it is used to treat a wide range of health problems from stress to migraines. Growing research has found it is able to treat various types of nausea (morning sickness), female infertility, PCOS, male fertility problems, sciatica, anxiety and many more.
