Which conditions can acupuncture treat?

There is much debate among researchers about which conditions acupuncture is most effective at treating. Good acupuncture studies are very difficult to design using the standard Western models, not least because of the fundamental differences between Western and Chinese diagnosis and the fact that, by its very nature, every treatment plan in Chinese medicine is unique to the individual patient. The most comprehensive research and information about the efficacy of acupuncture is to be found on the British Acupuncture Council website which you can get to by following the link.
