This dissertation for the Degree of Doctor of Psychology (Health) presents three pieces of work: 1) Systematic Review of Acupuncture as an Intervention for the Alleviation of Chronic Back Pain. 2) Health-Seeking Behaviours and Use of Traditional Chinese Medicine among the British Chinese 3) Design of an evaluation to measure outcomes of a Traditional Chinese Medicine Clinic for a Chinese Health Centre in London's Chinatown. The underlying theme linking these three pieces of work is Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and health-seeking behaviours. This thesis applies different methodologies to examine the use of TCM amongst British Chinese communities and also to explore the influence of culture and values on the health-seeking behaviours of British Chinese communities. The main aim of this thesis is to attempt to better understand the health-related issues of TCM and Chinese people living in Britain.
