York Acupuncture Network, a group of York and East Riding’s leading acupuncture practitioners, have come together to promote acupuncture during the national campaign Acupuncture Awareness Week.

As this year’s campaign focuses on sports injuries, the group has created a roadshow which will visit a number of sports facilities in York and East Yorkshire.

The roadshow will be at the KP Club in Pocklington this Saturday (12 March) between 9am and 3pm.

The roadshow will give members of the public the chance to try an acupuncture needle and to find out more about how acupuncture might help them to recover from a sports injury or other condition.

Acupuncture Awareness Week is an annual event co-ordinated by the UK acupuncture professional body the British Acupuncture Council .

Since this year the focus is on sports injuries, the group’s ambassador is the Olympic medallist Rebecca Adlington who has acupuncture for an ongoing shoulder injury.

Rebecca’s acupuncturist is Andrew Jackson who trained in York at the Northern College of Acupuncture, which is the country’s leading traditional Chinese acupuncture training College.

Rebecca said: “I am supporting acupuncture awareness week. Traditional acupuncture has helped me, it’s made a massive difference to my life and think that it can change somebody else’s.”
