Since the 1970’s, Acupuncture has been used in the UK as a complementary treatment for MS and it has gained a good reputation for its ability to stabilise and improve many of the symptoms associated with this condition. In recent years, well documented research and modern Acupuncture techniques have been introduced to help improve the efficacy of the treatment.

There are different systems of Acupuncture which can be used either by themselves or in combination for the treatment of MS symptoms:

Body acupuncture:  Can target any area of the body affected by MS in order to have effects such as improved blood circulation, increased relaxation in the muscles and tissues, pain relief, relief in anxiety and insomnia, increased energy levels, and improved bladder and digestive function, amongst others.

Scalp acupuncture: A system developed in more recent years specifically for neurological conditions. Here, points are treated along lines on the scalp that lie directly over the specific areas of the brain that control different bodily functions such as mobility, sensation, balance, etc.

Ear acupuncture: This system is based on a theory similar to that of reflexology where specific points of the auricle (external ear) act as reflex points for different parts of the body which can therefore be treated through the ear. This type of acupuncture is particularly effective for stress, anxiety and pain anywhere in the body, and it is also used worldwide for the emotional and physical symptoms related to drug and alcohol withdrawal and PTSD.

We are running a monthly Ear acupuncture group session on the second or third Friday of each month, where we provide treatment for stress, anxiety and any kind of pain at a much lower cost. Please contact the centre for further information.

If you are unsure that acupuncture is for you, please ask for a preliminary assessment with our practitioner to discuss how MS is affecting you, and how acupuncture can help you.
