What is Acupuncture and what can it treat? 

Acupuncture is the insertion and stimulation of small needles in specific points all over the body. The use of these needles sends signals throughout the body that trigger a biochemical response that promotes balance and restores healing.

 

A list of conditions and symptoms has been compiled by the World Health Organization regarding Acupuncture and it's ability to effectively respond. Acupuncture promotes and encourages the body to return to homeostatic balance. In doing so, the effects of acupuncture can be anti-inflammatory, pain relieving, relaxing, and hormonally receptive. Some of the best results can often come about with conditions that have curious symptoms or in situations where the exact diagnosis is unclear. Even in cases where the diagnosis is known, Chinese Medicine has it's own set of diagnostics used to assess a situation and formulate an appropriate treatment approach. Acupuncture is a great way to manage a wide range of conditions and can additionally compliment other treatment modalities and therapies. Some conditions often managed and treated by Acupuncture include:

 

Dermatological disorders          Anxiety and Depression

Joint and Muscle Pain                 Cancer and Side Effects of Treatment
