The popular Calmer Clinics lunchtime seminars return on 28 March at 1pm, with acupuncturist Meike Rainbird-Chill

The popularity of acupuncture as a complementary therapy is growing, with more people discovering its benefits every year. However, as a part of the traditional medicine of China and South East Asia, acupuncture is often perceived as quite mysterious.

The talk is aimed at those wishing to find out more about this ancient form of therapy. Following a brief introduction explaining the historical and cultural origins of Acupuncture, Meike will address questions such as:

  • How does acupuncture work?
  • What is an acupuncture point?
  • What is the meridian system?
  • What is the clinical efficacy of this treatment?
