Why are more and more people getting acupuncture treatment?

The short answer is: because it works. And because it works, more and more Orthodox / Western / Scientific Medicine Clinicians (like GPs, Physiotherapists, Gynaecologists, Nurses, Midwifes, etc) are recommending it to their patients.

You must be asking yourself: “but how would these western medical clinicians be ok with their patients getting acupuncture treatments?” Simple: there are no side effects from acupuncture and it doesn’t interfere with any other Western Medicine treatment that the patient(s) might be getting.

Furthermore, acupuncture is recognised by the World Health Organisation (WHO – click on the link to visit their page where this is discussed). Regulatory bodies in Ireland (AFPA, both Siobhan and Sandro are registered members and Sandro sits in the Executive Committee) and in Europe (ETCMA) ensure that when patients are referred to qualified, registered and insured acupuncturists, they will get the best care possible.

So, the real question is: “why shouldn’t more and more people be getting acupuncture?” – we have established that because it works, it is recognised by the highest authority in medicine (WHO), and therefore western medicine clinicians refer patients to licensed acupuncturists.

    Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine for children

    Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine for children

    Acupuncture has become more and more commonly used by parents as a treatment for children and babies. This is mainly because acupuncture offers a safe, natural and effective approach to paediatric care, which helps bring the child back to full health.
    It helps boost their immune system so that they will be stronger and able to fight the attack of disease. In our clinic, parents have given us feedback on having noticed that the developmental and general mood (especially in baby/toddler) has improved greatly after their child’s treatment.

    Acupuncture for male fertility issues

    Acupuncture for male fertility issues

    “The World Health Organisation defines male factor infertility as the presence of one or more abnormalities in the semen analysis, or the presence of inadequate sexual or ejaculatory function (Rowe 2004). In 50% of involuntarily childless couples, a male infertility associated factor is found together with abnormal semen parameters (Dohle 2010).”

    There are several factors that are responsible for male fertility issues, these include low sperm count, abnormal sperm shape and size (morphology), and motility problems (the movement of the sperm). The sperm can be abnormal due to a genetics, childhood issues, hormone imbalance and physiological and/or behavioural problems.

    Acupuncture! Do you get it?

    Acupuncture! Do you get it?

    For the patients that are not being referred by another health professional and are looking for acupuncture treatment for the first time, their main concern should be that the practitioner that they attend is fully qualified, registered and insured.
    The regulatory body (like the AFPA) will have an up-to-date database of acupuncturists that have done the necessary training hours and exams to be fully licensed to practice – this is true for Ireland and for other countries as well.
