Aquapuncture, Acupunture, Accupuncture, Accupunture or Acupuncture Edinburgh?

Julia Edmonds, acupuncturist in Edinburgh and East Lothian comments:  Acupuncture to the uninitiated is shrouded in mysticism in the west, so much so that it has more spelling errors than any other form of therapy in the UK. Where does the word come from?

It certainly has a Latin derivation, "acus" being needle in latin and and "punctura" being puncture. Acupuncture was reputedly first used as a term to describe the technique by French Jesuits in the 16th Century. This does little to demystify either the word or technique as it begs a new question, how did 16th century Jesuits know about acupuncture?  

Aquapunture Clinic Edinburgh conjures up an image of intense watery pain, while the Acupunture Clinic or Accupunture Edinburgh implies a pun a minute. Accupunture Edinburgh is an easy mistake to make.

Client Testimonials

I personally will always attribute Julia's treatment to be the predominant factor in my extended period of remission from Crohn's disease. Julia is both a trusted friend and therapist and I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking an alternative therapy.

My aches and pains in ankles, knees, hips and lower back disappear and my energy levels are given a very good boost too! It is 45 minutes or so of relaxation in a busy schedule. She keeps up to date with modern acupuncture techniques and has recently returned from a trip to China to experience these new techniques first hand. I cannot recommend Julia highly enough

Christopher Spencer

I consider myself very fortunate to have found Julia's Acupuncture Practice 2 years ago, when I decided to try acupuncture for back problems. After a few treatments the problems were solved. Since I have every confidence in Julia's ability, each treatment is a very relaxing and worthwhile experience.
