What Does Acupuncture Treat?
What We Treat
The beauty of Acupuncture is that it can benefit many conditions, since treatment focuses on overall wellbeing. Chinese medicine is concerned with addressing the underlying root cause behind your particular pattern of imbalance, rather than treating only the signs and symptoms manifested by your condition.
While below is a list of conditions that Acupuncture treats effectively, at the end of the day the goal is to restore homeostasis and equilibrium within all aspects of the mind, body, and spirit.
