The healing properties of acupuncture have been pinpointed for pupils at Wisbech Grammar School.

In the latest in a series of lectures Marianne Killick, who practices in Peterborough and Wisbech, outlined the basic principles of the complimentary ancient Chinese medicine.

Pupils from a cross-section of year groups heard how acupuncture is valued as part of a holistic approach to good health and well-being and is offered alongside other treatments provided by the National Health Service.

Jane Missin, who organises the enrichment lectures in order to stimulate thinking about topics that transcend the classroom curriculum, said: “This was a fascinating talk which gave a real understanding of the basic principles behind the practice of acupuncture and how it can work alongside conventional drug therapies. Pupils asked some excellent questions and were challenged about how they view healing.”
