How acupuncture works

Acupuncture works by stimulating the body to heal itself. Basically it is a way of retraining the body’s nervous system and of balancing its energies.

Very fine needles are inserted into areas of the body containing nerve endings. The type of nerve ending and the method of needling determines the response elicited.

At best it is an effective treatment for a wide range of conditions. At worse in skilled medical hands acupuncture is virtually harmless. It should not be used as a last resort treatment but should be undertaken at the earliest possible stage before a complaint becomes chronic and therefore harder to treat.

Treatment should always follow diagnosis.

Conditions which may be treated

Acupuncture can successfully treat a wide range of conditions including:


  • Chronic pain states

  • Stress related disorders – including anxiety and depression

  • Muscle and tendon injuries including sports injuries

  • Sinusitis

  • Hay fever

  • All forms of headaches

  • Vertigo

  • Acute shingles/post herpetic neuralgia

  • Facial nerve paralysis

  • Backache/neckache

  • Sciatica

  • Menstrual disorders

  • Fertility

  • Pregnancy induced ailments such as morning sickness

  • Addictions – smoking, drugs


The list is exhaustive, if unsure about your particular problem don’t hesitate to discuss with Dr Azam.



Side effects

Side effects occur in a minority of patients, they may include transient aggravation symptoms, euphoria, relaxation or minor bruising.

Serious side effects such as organ puncture and retention of broken needles are extremely rare when acupuncture is administered by a qualified Medical Practitioner.
