Anxiety UK and the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC) have launched a project which will see members of Anxiety UK being able to access traditional acupuncture through this new partnership.
Throughout the project, data will be collected to determine the effectiveness of traditional acupuncture for treating those living with anxiety and anxiety based depression. This will enable both parties to continue to build a body of evidence to measure the success rate of this type of treatment.
This is an exciting project and will provide us with valuable data and outcomes for those members who take part and allow us to assess the benefits of extending it to a regular service for those living with anxiety.
We know anecdotally that many people find complementary therapies used to support conventional care can provide enormous benefit, although it should be remembered they are used in addition to and not instead of seeking medical advice from a doctor or taking prescribed medication.
The programme is open to any Anxiety UK member.
