Acupuncture in London: things to know before you go

As a global city influenced by many cultures, there are many places to get acupuncture treatment in London. Here are some of the key questions you might be wondering before making a booking.

What’s the science behind acupuncture?

Modern acupuncture treatment stimulates the sensory nerves under your skin and in your muscles to produce endorphins, helping your body cope with pain. Traditional acupuncture focuses on Qi, the flow of energy through the body. You might feel pain or illness when your body’s energy is blocked or imbalanced. Acupuncture aims to stimulate Qi by inserting needles into specific points and get your energy flowing again.

Sound painful? Don’t worry, the needles are very thin – roughly the same width as a single human hair. Many people hardly even feel them.

Are there any benefits to acupuncture?

Acupuncture can provide a wide range of health benefits – both physical and mental.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence recommends acupuncture for treating migraines and chronic headaches. It’s used to alleviate physical conditions, including neck pain, nausea and digestive problems. Acupuncture can also relieve stress, anxiety and insomnia.

These far-reaching effects are more likely to be felt over a course of treatment, rather than just a single session. You can also try acupuncture deals in conjunction with other alternative medicine treatments, such as homeopathy.

What is the best acupuncture point?

The specific areas of your body where you’re feeling aches and pains will determine where the needles will be used in acupuncture treatment.

Some of the acupuncture points in your body may not be where you would expect. For example, large intestine 4 is located on your hand – between your thumb and index finger. It’s commonly used to relieve the symptoms of stress, headaches, toothaches and neck pain.

Before your first session, your therapist will ask you some questions to identify where the pain is located – to make sure you get the most out of the treatment. Depending on your condition, they might insert the needles just under your skin or deeper to reach the muscle tissue. Your therapist may also suggest facial acupuncture treatment.

What’s the difference between acupuncture and acupressure?

The main difference between acupressure and acupuncture is that one uses needles and the other doesn’t.

  • Acupressure professionals use their hands to apply pressure to your acupuncture points. It offers many of the same benefits as traditional acupuncture – including relieving muscle tightness and stimulating the flow of Qi – but all without a needle in sight.
  • Acupuncture practitioners pierce your skin with super-thin needles with the aim of getting your energy flowing again.

Whether you’re planning to book a single session or want to combine acupuncture with reflexology and massage, find the best acupuncture deals here.
