In Traditional Chinese Medicine, meridians are paths through which the life energy ‘qi’ and blood flows, connecting acupuncture points across the body. Within the system there are 12 principal meridians which are divided into groups of yin and yang and pertain to interior organs as well as extending all over the surface of the body’s exterior, creating a network that links tissue and organs. It is a network which helps to maintain balance in the mind and body.
Most people wouldn’t think of Acupuncture in terms of Eastern and Western, but they are in fact very different. Acupuncture is thousands of years old and derives from Traditional Chinese Medicine which is what is also referred to as ‘Eastern’ Acupuncture. It has only been in the last 50 years that Acupuncture has become more widely recognised as a treatment for a variety of ailments in the West. Here we will be exploring the distinct differences between Eastern and Western Acupuncture to help you understand their uses, benefits and how they work.
Here at ATW, we’re passionate about helping people, whether that be people who come to see us regularly or just on a one off basis.
We have had close links with an organisation called Something To Look Forward To for many years now, who are a charity who have been affected by cancer and so decided to try to help others. STLFT helps by providing gifts and experiences to to families and cancer patients which have been donated by gifts and businesses.
They succeeded, and since 2015, Something to Look Forward To has been a registered charity which has helped to improve the lives of thousands of families of cancer patients across the UK.

Acupuncture That Works is very proud to announce that we have been presented with Acupuncture Clinic of the Year 2019 under the Alternative Medicine & Holistic Health Awards by Global Health & Pharma Magazine. We have been recognised by Global Health & Pharma as going above and beyond for our patients.
The awarding body are keen to only award the best and most deserving in this category and this industry, so we are thrilled to have won.
Acupuncture That Works are delighted to announce a new clinic in Chester which is run by resident Acupuncturist Emma Mango.
Emma came to Acupuncture after an Acupuncturist helped her by successfully treating her Meniere’s Disease with Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. From this, Emma was inspired to help others who may be looking for alternative remedies for acute and chronic illnesses.
Her path to becoming a qualified Acupuncturist saw Emma graduating in 2012 from the University of Lincoln with a first class BSc Honours degree in Acupuncture. This course is accredited by the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC) and the Association of Traditional Chinese Medicine UK (ATCM).
Her training also included courses in Chinese massage, moxibustion, cupping therapy and auricular acupuncture. As part of her degree, Emma worked in the University’s alternative health clinic, treating patients with asthma, psoriasis, sciatica, acne and menopausal symptoms, among others.
Since graduating, Emma has gained 5 years’ experience in the treatment of a variety of conditions.
Emma is particularly interested in mental health but welcomes the chance to treat any disorder. A large part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) focuses on diet and lifestyle and this is integrated into all treatments; each patient is an individual, each treatment personally tailored.
We at Acupuncture That Works are delighted to welcome Emma to the team and look forward to working with her as we grow our network of clinics.
To book a treatment with Emma in our Chester clinic, just call 0800 051 76 88.

Earlier this week Emma was invited to speak on the RedShift Radio Health and Healing programme, with Chrisoula Sirgou.
It was a fascinating interview and covered off a number of subjects including how Emma gave up a successful career in Management and became an Acupuncturist, what people use Acupuncture for and some of the things that you can expect. For example, did you know that Traditional Chinese Acupuncture (TCM) doesn’t hurt, and that the needles used are so fine they are as thin as a strand of hair?
