Acupuncture and Chinese medicine are very successful in the treatment of many medical conditions. Many people try acupuncture and Oriental medicine as a “last resort” for serious and complex medical problems and find that it can help them where other treatments could not.
Acupuncture is often used as preventive medicine. Many people see their acupuncturist only 2-4 times a year for a “tune up” or “balancing” treatment. This can help prevent disease and promote health, energy and vitality.
As an acupuncturist, I look for the cause of your condition and use this diagnosis to determine whether oriental medicine can help. Each person is unique and it would be difficult to determine how effective acupuncture will be for you without a full evaluation.
What problems are often treated with acupuncture?
The most common medical conditions presented to an acupuncturist are pain related.
For example; arthritis, back, neck, knee and shoulder pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and sciatica.
