Acupuncture Treatment for anxiety: A pilot study supported by Anxiety UK and BAcC

Workshop times

Workshop description

Historical records show that Chinese medicine (CM) has treated emotion related disorders for many centuries. It has developed its own highly sophisticated frameworks for understanding and responding to these conditions and therefore suggests itself as a potentially valuable resource in addressing the health care needs of populations in contemporary societies.

To begin evaluating this resource, with support from the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC) and the charity Anxiety UK, I have established a specialist acupuncture clinic at the University of Westminster. Acupuncture UK refers patients to my clinic where they receive between six to twelve acupuncture treatments spaced out over weekly sessions. Although patient numbers to date are still quite small due the restricted time I have available for the project, the results so far have been promising. In this presentation I will discuss the Chinese medicine patterns that seem to predominate in this patient population and the results after the course of treatment.
