We’re really missing the point about acupuncture: study

RESEARCH has revealed that over 21% of the British public think an acupuncturist’s needle is as large as that used in an injection, proving that despite the ancient Chinese medicine’s rising popularity there are still a host of common misconceptions surrounding the treatment.

Susan Evans, an acupuncturist in Millburn Complementary Therapy Centre and member of the British Acupuncture Council, the leading self-regulatory body for the practice, said: “2.3 million acupuncture treatments are carried out each year by traditional acupuncturists and this figure is rising.

“We want to inform the public that having acupuncture is a safe and effective treatment.”

Susan Evans RGN, RSCN, LicAC, MBAcC, has been in practice as a professional Acupuncturist for over 24 years building on a career in nursing of over 10 years.

In 2010 she opened Millburn Complementary Therapy Centre in Coleraine offering the local community the opportunity to attend a professionally run centre where all the therapists are fully qualified, experienced and insured. The clinic aims to help its clients attain optimum health through excellent treatment and advice.

As part of Acupuncture awareness week there will be a free talk, “Introducing Traditional Acupuncture” by Susan Evans in Millburn Complementary Therapy Centre, 65 Millburn Road. Coleraine, on Saturday, March 3 at 2pm.
