Acupuncture can treat a wide variety of health concerns as part of a complete system of traditional medicine. The World Health Organization recognizes acupuncture as an effective treatment for over 100 different conditions, including...
Neurological or Musculoskeletal conditions such as headaches, migraines, neck and back pain, sciatica, frozen shoulder, knee pain, arthritis, tendonitis, fibromyalgia and fasciitis, postoperative pain and peripheral neuropathy.
Gastrointestinal conditions such as gastritis, ulcerative colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, abdominal pain, diarrhea, constipation, nausea and vomiting.
Respiratory conditions such as sinusitis, bronchitis, asthma, and the common cold.
Menstrual and Reproductive conditions such as dysmenorrhea (menstrual cramps), PCOS, PMS, infertility, morning sickness, and malposition of fetus (breech baby).
Mental/Emotional conditions such as stress/mental tension, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.
Many other conditions including insomnia, hypertension, alcohol/tobacco/drug dependence and detoxification, cancer pain and adverse reactions to chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy.
Chinese medicine is often an effective choice for conditions that have not been responsive to conventional care, as the goal of treatment is to engage the body's natural healing response. With this approach, many symptoms can improve/resolve across all systems of the body, even those that seem unrelated.
