Acupuncture is part of a system of medicine which originated in China thousands years ago. The principal method of treatment is by inserting very fine needles into acupuncture points which lie on meridians beneath the skin. These acupuncture points may also be treated by warming with a burning herb (moxibustion), by gentle electrical pulse (electro-acupuncture), or by laser.
Acupuncture is a world wide medicine: it is used in almost every country in the world. It is estimated that there are currently more than 3 millions practicing acupuncturists, including barefoot doctors. Acupuncture takes years to learn: a qualified practitioner of traditional Chinese Medicine needs many years of study and clinical practice in order to refine his diagnostic and therapeutic skills. Acupuncture is a complex system which requires extensive study of the classical theory, profound knowledge of both theory and practice, and the necessary background in western medicine as well.

My two children were born naturally with the help of acupuncture and homeopathy
In many cases, I helped women who had difficulties conceiving; after a course of acupuncture, they became pregnant.
When these ladies wanted an other child, they again had problems. After a second course of acupuncture, they became pregnant a second time.
For me this is probably the most rewarding part of my work: there is no better feeling than when one of my patient call me to let me know that she is pregnant, or when the mother turns up at my practice, to show me her newborn baby

Pierre-Jean Cousin: acupuncture The tall, grey-haired, bespectacled Frenchman has a reassuringly competent manner and a no-nonsense approach to treatment. That's just as well, since clients include some pernickety members of the Royal Family.
''He's rather sardonic and French,'' reports one patient. ''If you say 'Ow' when he sticks in a needle, he shrugs and says, 'But I can feel nothing.'''
