Some people who haven’t tried acupuncture might think it’s ‘way out there’. But it’s actually been around at least 2500 years. In modern China it has equal status alongside western medicine. Acupuncture is also increasingly backed by scientific research. Even GPs and medical consultants in the UK use it these days. Pain and numbness, muscular problems and arthritis, mental-emotional issues, such as depression and anxiety, headaches, digestive issues, pregnancy and fertility problems and so much more, can potentially benefit from acupuncture.
There are many ways for you to find better health. On your journey, Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture could be the route that works for you. It certainly has been for many who have visited Advance Chiropractic & Acupuncture Clinic, Hertford.
I have been attending the Advance Clinic over the past year for both Chiropractic and Acupuncture. The clinic…is spotless, and an oasis of calm, where I always feel welcome. – Emma H.
I have been seeing David…for both Acupuncture, for my hayfever (among other things) and Chiropractic treatment for my shoulder and back issues. I have had good results from both. David is very professional and sets out a clear treatment plan. – Fay Simmons
Acupuncture: A Range of Treatments to Make You Feel Better
Acupuncture is a very safe, gentle and effective form of healthcare that includes use of one or more of the following:
- Needling – insertion of very fine, sterile and usually painless needles at defined points on the body (called acupuncture points)
- Moxa – the use of therapeutic heat to stimulate needles or acupuncture points
- Cupping – use of suction glass or plastic cups to stimulate blood flow to an area of the body to stimulate healing
- Electroacupuncture – gentle, electrical stimulation of specific acupuncture points, with or without associated needling.
In addition to relieving and preventing reoccurrence of your symptoms (such as pain), acupuncture can also:
- Promote increased energy levels
- Promote better sleep
- Help you feel revitalized and mentally and physically relaxed
- Lift mood when you’re feeling low and calm the mind when you’re feeling anxious
Most people are aware that acupuncture usually involves needles. But you might be pleased to hear it doesn’t have to. The techniques listed above which involve gentle, electrical and/or heat stimulation of acupuncture points, as well as cupping, can by themselves have similar, positive effects to acupuncture needling.
I came to David for Acupuncture after many years of suffering sinus problems…Within a few weeks of my treatment my condition had greatly improved, and continues to do so. I have always found David very approachable, caring and professional. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him. – Sarah Hussey
Is Acupuncture Treatment at Advance Clinic, Hertford Delivered by a Fully Qualified and Regulated Practitioner?
Your acupuncture treatment is guaranteed to be both gentle and safe. The regulation of acupuncture in the UK is patchy. Anyone can legally stick a needle in you! My initial, three-year fulltime training to degree level in acupuncture and my membership of the most respected UK acupuncture professional bodies should help give you confidence in Advance Clinic’s acupuncture treatment.
I am fully registered and insured with the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC), the most prestigious regulatory body for traditional acupuncture in the UK. Study of acupuncture to degree level or equivalent is a prerequisite for membership. As part of my ongoing registration, I’m required to engage in a minimum number of hours of continuing professional development activity each year. The BAcC has always been committed to maintaining very high educational and ethical standards, to which all its members must adhere.
I’m also registered with the British Medical Acupuncture Society (BMAS), which promotes the scientific study of acupuncture. This body counts GPs, medical consultants, dentists and others in the conventional medical field as members. All members research and practise acupuncture as part of their work.

I was recommended to David by my PA as I was having a lot of pain in my elbow. After a few acupuncture treatments and some exercises I am well on the way to recovering and may even be able to pick my golf clubs back up! – Graham Clarke
