Acupuncture Research

Acupuncture Research Organisations

Evidence on how and why Acupuncture works is well documented. Research and clinical trials can also now demonstrate which conditions Acupuncture can help treat and the physiological mechanisms involved during and after Acupuncture.  

Below are links to organisations that conduct Acupuncture research. Please get in touch if there are specific conditions or mechanisms you are interested in. I am happy to advise which organisations and databases may have the information you are looking for.  

“Now is a really exciting time in Acupuncture Research. Clinical trials and studies can now demonstrate the effectiveness of Acupuncture to heal the human body”.
