Acupuncture Awareness week 6 – 12 March 2017.
Acupuncture Awareness Week takes place from 6th – 12th March 2017. The aim of the week is to highlight the benefits of acupuncture, which can extend to a wide variety of conditions, including emotional disorders such as anxiety and depression and digestive complaints including nausea, vomiting and irritable bowel syndrome.
A recent study by health specialists at the University of York found that acupuncture can boost the effectiveness of standard medical care, lessening the severity of chronic pain and depression*.
Eva Heffernan of The Acupuncture Council of Ireland says Acupuncture Awareness Week is a good opportunity to inform people of the many benefits of acupuncture: “The use of acupuncture is growing at an exponential rate globally. The WHO (World Health Organisation) supports its use in treatment for conditions such as cancer, arthritis, fertility, pain, migraine, depression, agitation, poor memory, stress and anxiety and much more. We’re finding that acupuncture is becoming a common topic of discussion amongst doctors and GP’s, particularly in a peer to peer review setting, including doctor referrals”.
During the week, look out for newspaper articles radio interviews and an Ireland am interview, showcasing the benefits of Acupuncture.
During Awareness week participating members of Acupuncture Council of Ireland will offer €10 off treatments.
