Conditions We Treat

In our clinic, we see and effectively treat a whole array of conditions and disorders. The more commonly seen are pain and pain related conditions, mental health, emotional and stress disorders, Male/female infertility problems and womens' health conditions.

The British Acupuncture Council (BAcC) has produced a series of fact sheets available on their public website. These provide accurate and unbiased general information for a variety of conditions with summaries of research. These fact sheets are very helpful and maybe viewed here.

Included below is a list compiled by the World Health Organisation (WHO) on acupuncture. Keeping in line with evidence based medicine, we hope this gives you insight on the diseases, symptoms and conditions we feel happy to address here at Cavendish Acupuncture Clinic.

You maybe unaware that no 'labelled' medical condition needs to be present for acupuncture treatment. Should you feel just not 'quite right' within yourself please contact us. If we feel able to help you, we'll do exactly that.
