World Medicine - Acupuncture in Action

World Medicine is a registered UK charity providing acupuncture to people around the world suffering the effects of trauma, disaster or poverty.

Welcome to World Medicine

World Medicine - Acupuncture in Action -  offers humanitarian aid  where it is most needed, regardless of race, religion, politics or gender in order to strengthen and support local communities.

The journey began in 2005 when a team of 21 complementary therapists went out to help victims of the Asian Tsunami.

Today, we are more active than ever in offering practitioner experience, overseas and UK based programmes, recruiting volunteers, and raising funds for current and future projects. We raise fund for these and to support UK based acupuncturists to run their own projects through our grant scheme.

Please browse around the website to find out more about our work, our projects, those we help, our volunteers, and how you too can help our work by giving your time and by giving us financial support.

Thank you for your interest in the work of World Medicine, thank you for visiting and thank you for your support.
