About Acupuncture Awareness Week

6 March to 12 March 2017

Acupuncture Awareness Week is supported by the British Acupuncture Council and aims to better inform people about the practice of traditional acupuncture. 

With 2.3 million acupuncture treatments carried out each year, traditional acupuncture is one of the most popular complementary therapies practised in the UK today. Even so, many people only discover traditional acupuncture as a last resort despite its widely recognised health benefits.

Throughout Acupuncture Awareness Week, all across the UK you will find members of the British Acupuncture Council seizing this opportunity to talk to as many people as they can about traditional acupuncture.


Keep your ears and eyes open for acupuncture events in your area: exhibitions, talks, roadshows, clinic open days, local radio, articles online and in your local press. Or just book in for a chat with your local BAcC registered practitioner to find out more about what traditional acupuncture has to offer.
