Acupuncture for Back Pain in London
There are few things in day to day life that are worse than living with back pain. Because acupuncture for back pain has been clinically proven to be an effective therapy, it’s become a popular way for people with sporadic and chronic discomfort to find lasting relief.
Dozens of clinical studies have shown that acupuncture has a demonstrable benefit when it comes to treating a range of musculoskeletal conditions and related issues – which also include neck and joint pain as well as migraine and headaches.
Chronic, but low grade, back pain is notoriously difficult to treat effectively through conventional clinical services that are routinely available through the NHS. Often patients experiencing this type of ongoing discomfort are either treated through near-permanent analgesia (painkillers) or, in extreme cases, invasive surgery that isn’t guaranteed to be successful.
There is now substantial evidence to show that acupuncture, which uses slender needles to painlessly stimulate the body’s natural healing processes and promote renewed wellbeing, in this case reducing pain or, in many cases, eradicating it altogether.
Acupuncture can be effective because one of the principles of this ancient Chinese therapy is that pain often manifests itself in a part of the body that isn’t where the source of the problem is to be found. It’s the very fact that the human anatomy is neurologically linked that means pain is often resolved by focusing treatment somewhere else.
At The Acupuncturists, we take our knowledge of Western medical science and our experience of natural Eastern therapies to use acupuncture to harness the combined healing power of the mind and body.
In this way, and by using state of the art technology, we can monitor the natural energy levels within the body to first identify where the problem really is – and then perform acupuncture therapy to target the source of the pain, rather than the pain itself as a symptom.
Treatment for back pain shouldn’t have to come down to a binary choice between management through medication or invasive surgery, though that’s often what happens when traditional health services run out of options.
Acupuncture targeted to specific back pain gives you another recognised and clinically proven route to solving long-term and chronic discomfort that is pain-free and effective and delivered by a fully-trained and qualified professional.
The treatments are offered at our comfortable and professional clinic, conveniently located in Marylebone, London, meaning that most of our patients can schedule appointments for times that are convenient to them and which won’t interfere with the pressure of work.

Your Health in Safe Hands
Archna is amazing. I’ve found her treatments incredibly effective and she is super knowledgeable and caring. She is also very much at the forefront of her field and has a wide variety of tools that she brings to her clients. I love working with her and have now come to her for several years. I have worked with other top acupuncturists in London and SF and consider her among the very best!
I can’t recommend Archna highly enough. It’s such a personal experience receiving treatment from her, every time I go I always leave feeling more balanced, calm and centred. I’m also positive that seeing her for the past two years played a part in helping me get pregnant and definitely helped me during pregnancy with my sciatica. She has recently helped me so much with upper back and neck tension and with my hayfever, it pretty much disappears after I see her. She is also one of the warmest, kindest people I’ve ever met.
I am very grateful to Archna and the team for developing this method of treatment online. The day after a comprehensive video consultation, I received the Acu Pyramid pads and very clear information about where they would be applied. In the course of a second video consultation, Archna showed me exactly how and where to apply them. It was surprisingly easy, and as they don’t pierce the skin, it felt very safe.
As a result of the treatment, I no longer have a pain in my neck and shoulder that has been with me for two months and I have seen a huge improvement in stiffness in one of my joints which had also been problematic for many weeks.
I have no hesitation at all in recommending the treatment and would positively encourage anyone to try it.
“I have been seeing Archna for six months, after struggling with anxiety, stress and difficulties with conception. I was very nervous about approaching acupuncture, but Archna put me at ease within 2 minutes of meeting her. Her calm and reassuring manner helped me to relax, and she went out of her way to make sure that I was always comfortable and felt secure with the treatment options. My appointments with Archna are now little oases of quiet and calm; her treatments dropped my anxiety levels significantly, and I fell pregnant after just a month of seeing her! I truly believe this was a result of Archna’s healing and nurturing treatments, as well as her warm and caring presence. Despite reaching my goal of pregnancy, I am still seeing Archna to calm, soothe and invigorate me during this time, she is the best – thank you Archna.”
“My experience at the Acupuncturists was wonderful, every time since I have started seeing Archna over two years ago. She is a fantastic practitioner, really knowledgeable and very focused on providing the best treatment possible. She is very professional and knows how to adjust each treatment so that when you leave you feel much better then when you arrived. She has helped me with stress, back pain, shoulder tension, digestive issues and common cold relief. I would highly recommend Archna to anyone looking to receive treatment.”
I couldn’t recommend Archna highly enough! I’ve been seeing her for over a year now – for various reasons – including digestive issues and addiction. Archna is the warmest, most caring practitioner I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. She makes you feel completely at ease in the treatment and with her many years of experience, always knows just what to do. She is an integral part to my recovery and I feel blessed to have her in my life.
I’m really well looked after by Archna and feel my needs are being treated with care on a weekly basis. Would highly recommend to anyone!
“Archna has treated me for menopausal symptoms, for shoulder pain and for stress. She is an excellent acupuncturist, highly professional and a warm and caring human being. Having been sceptical at the beginning, I realised quickly that Archna’s treatments result in real improvements and alleviation of symptoms. I have total confidence in Archna and recommend her unreservedly.”
“I went to Archna initially with a very painful bursitis which couldn’t be treated with physiotherapy apart from steroid injections. She managed to treat my shoulder in a few sessions and I started to feel so much better. What I love about Archna is that she is very professional and she explains exactly what she is doing. She has an amazingly calm energy which helps you relax into the treatment and the session. I am a regular client now as she has helped me with many other issues from digestive issues to tension and even emotional imbalance. I look forward to my sessions as I leave feeling so relaxed and very light which are a result of the acupuncture but also Archna’s magical touch and energy.”
Archna Patel is a truly talented and professional acupuncturist. She has treated me successfully for physical issues (foot and back injuries), and also deeper emotional issues (stress, anxiety). The Acupuncturists clinic location near Green Park is super convenient and easy to find. I can’t recommend Archna highly enough and only wish I could give her more than 5 stars.
“Sitting in the office all day and working without much movement during the week, my neck and back have bothered me for months. I was recommended accupuncture with Archna and after initial skepticism of needles and acupuncture in general, I made an appointment with Archna. My experience was excellent and she has relieved my of my aches, whether in neck, head, back, hips etc. I am a regular with Archna now and very happy! Highly recommend her!”
“I have really enjoyed my experience going to Archna I was hesitant at first having never tried accupuncture before but have found it to be a very effective compliment to other treatments. Archna has treated my for stress, lower back pain and allergies. I was surprised how effective acupuncture can be and what a wonderful practioner Archna is. The location is very convienent I can go right after work.”
I went to see Archna after being highly recommended by my sister. I found Archna’s caring and lovely nature made me feel completely comfortable, and I was amazed with the results I got after a treatment with her. As a mum of two my back had taken a battering along with my energy, I’m writing this now feeling like a new woman! So I now join my sister in highly recommending her to everyone!
I have been seeing Archna since 2017, for injuries, shoulder, neck and back pains and overall health and maintenance. She is very caring and professional toward my treatment, it was great we found her for my acupuncture needs in London. I would recommend Archna for anyone seeking acupuncture treatment. Thank you!
“Archna is the most professional, knowledgeable and caring acupuncturist I have seen so far. I will get treated by no one else in the future. Archna not only has over 20 years of acupuncture experience, but in addition she is the only practitioner in her field who I have met, who takes a holistic and much more thorough approach for treating her patients. Archna is efficient, to the point, and extremely skilled. I have recommended Archna to several friends, who are all as happy as I am. I cannot recommend Archna enough and wish I had found her earlier! Thank you Archna!”
Archna is an absolutely amazing and gifted acupuncturist. She has treated me for a variety of back, neck and skin conditions, and the results and healing effects on the body have been nothing short of extraordinary. I really like her energy, integrity and commitment to the work that she is doing and would strongly recommend her to anyone seeking a natural treatment to any physical or emotional issue.
My daughter has been suffering from hay fever for a very long time and we’ve tried many different treatments which didn’t help but Archna has achieved amazing results with just few sessions only. She is very professional and trustworthy lady and I cannot thank her enough for everything she did for my daughter. Thank you
I have been consulting Archna for around 15 years. Her work never ceases to astonish me, and now I find there is no ailment that I would not ask her about. Most entrancing though, is her deep-sourced integrity and soulfulness. I have recommended her work to most of my friends and family and will continue to do so.
