Conditions Treated

Acupuncture works by activating the body's own healing abilities. In addition to being a powerful support for maintaining health and preventing disease, it is effective in treating many health conditions. The World Health Organization has documented many symptoms, diseases, and conditions that have been shown in controlled clinical trials to be effectively treated with acupuncture. Below is a list of some of the common conditions effectively treated with acupuncture.  Please contact me to find out more about how acupuncture can address your specific concern and support your wellbeing.
