Conditions Effectively Treated by Acupuncture 

Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine are comprehensive health care systems and one of the most respected healing professions around the globe. It has been practiced for thousands of years and serves a quarter of the world’s population Acupuncture and ICM have increased in public acceptance in the United States and Europe as the fastest growing complementary health care field.

 

Acupuncture is a safe, natural, and effective treatment for a wide variety of medical conditions. Below is a list of common conditions that Acupuncture effectively treats – if you do not see your particular condition or symptom below – please call for a free consultation. I offer free consultation to all patients – I will sit with you and obtain a brief history of your current medical complaint and previous medical history. If I do not expect you to receive a reasonable degree of benefit from acupuncture I will not recommend treatment. If treatment is indicated, a highly personalized and integrated treatment plan is recommended. I also work integratively with other health providers so that you receive the best care for you!
