So! You're planning to visit an acupuncturist? First, do some Self-Help!
Think about your problem and try to marshal your thoughts about it. A little forethought goes a long way.
The following might help jog your thoughts - but they don't cover everything ...
What sort of pain (problem) is it?
People consult acupuncturists for all sorts of problems, many of them listed on the left side of this page, and many don't involve pain - Insomnia, for instance.
But suppose it is a pain, then ...
What were the circumstances surrounding the original onset? For example, what was going on in your life in the months preceding the onset of your problem or at about the same time as it started?
Is there any other kind of discomfort that you have?
Self-help can pinpoint answers that only you know, and to your acupuncturist they can make an enormous difference!
The other question is what kind of acupuncturist to consult. Think in the same way you would if consulting any professional, such as a lawyer, architect or private doctor.
You would probably prefer someone well-qualified, with experience and preferably with a good track record.
Of course, since you'll be discussing very personal matters, you'll want someone you can trust. If you know of someone that a friend has visited, with good results, that might be a good place to start.
All members of the British Acupuncture Council have spent many years in training, with good clinical supervision. Members maintain their standards through regular CPD - Continuing Professional Development - and they are all fully insured.

All the books in the 'Chinese Medicine in English' series should be fully accessible on Kindles and Kindle apps. (Or you can buy the softback print editions, of course.)
('Western Astrology and Chinese Medicine' published 1986, was never available in a Kindle version.)
If, having read one of my books you can write a review - preferably positive - that would help others decide whether to read it.
You can put your review on Amazon or, on this site, here.
And if you think it was terrible?
Well, let me know so I can improve it for the next person. (Ideally let me know before cursing it in public!)
Here are some of the books I (Jonathan) have written.
Subscribers to Kindle Unlimited can borrow the first four for 'free'.
Still only one comment, though personally I think this is my best book so far.
Published 1986 and, amazingly, still selling. Was apparently used back then by at least one acupuncture college to help students understand Chinese medicine!
One Review so far. (Despite the lurid cover, it explains the five main types of phlegm and what works best for each type. I hope it's easy to read and will be much more useful than all the websites on the subject.)
