What Can Acupuncture Treat in General?

Acupuncture is best known for it's ability to relieve pain. Generally acupuncture works by activating the body's own healing abilities, so it can be beneficial for many health conditions. The World Health Organization (WHO) has documented many symptoms, diseases, and conditions that have been shown in controlled clinical trials to be effectively treated with acupuncture. Below are just some common conditions that can be treated, but please feel free to email or call us about your specific health conditions.
