Acupuncture Treatment

What conditions are appropriate for Acupuncture therapy?

While Acupuncture is often associated with the treatment of pain, in the hands of a well-trained practitioner it has much broader applications.

Acupuncture can be effective as the only treatment used, or as a support or adjunct to other forms of medial treatment in many medical and surgical disorders. The World Health Organization recognizes the use of Acupuncture in the treatment of a wide range of medical problems, including:

  • Digestive disorders: gastritis and hyperacidity, spastic colon, constipation, diarrhea.
  • Respiratory disorders: sinusitis, sore throat, bronchitis, asthma, recurrent chest infections.
  • Neurological and muscular disorders: headaches, facial tics, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, neck pain, rib neuritis, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, various forms of tendinitis, low back pain, sciatica, osteoarthritis.
  • Urinary, menstrual, and reproductive problems.

Acupuncture is particularly useful in resolving physical problems related to tension, stress and emotional conditions. It also plays a major role in the stimulation and enhancement of the immune system. Acupuncture is very effective in cases where the use of Western medicine is said to be very limited, like chronic pain management, drug addiction and cancer treatment. 

Studies have shown that over 60% of patients who were treated with Acupuncture after being paralyzed as a result of a stroke showed great improvement..

Acupuncture can be a very effective treatment for poor circulation. With improved blood circulation, enhanced by Acupuncture, the patient benefits with sharper mental clarity, enhanced concentration, enriched sleep, positive feelings about life and a healthy appetite.

"Not only is Acupuncture effective as a primary modality, it also can play a vital role as an adjunctive therapy due to how effective the meridian system is as a means of proper diagnosis."
