What does Acupuncture Treat?

What Acupuncture Can Treat:

Acupuncture and Chinese medicine are extremely successful in the treatment of many conditions. Many people try Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine as a “last resort” to serious and complex medical problems and find that it can help them when methodologies could not. Although, this may be true for many, the ideal way to view acupuncture is as preventative medicine. Even those who see their acupuncturist only 2-4 times a year for a “tune up” or “balancing” treatment find that it helps to prevent disease and promote health, energy and vitality.

Each case is unique and subsequently, each new patient will have a full assessment with our practitioners to determine how Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine might serve you and what type of treatment plan would be optimal.SuNu-308
