What Does Acupuncture Treat?

You may or may not be aware that 90% of all doctors visits are stress related. Nothing ages our organs faster than unmanaged stress.

If 90% of all illness arises at least in the deepest layer of illness from stress, the simple answer to what acupuncture can help is stress (or just about anything). Acupuncture shines in prevention and has no negative side effects.

The World Health Organization recognizes acupuncture as an effective treatment for nearly 4 dozen common conditions including:

Neuromuscular Conditions:

>> arthritis
>> insomina
>> dizziness
>> neck, shoulder, and back pain

Emotional Disorders:

>> anxiety
>> stress
>> depression

Circulatory Disorders:

>> hypertension
>> angina
>> anemia

Respiratory Disorders:

>> allergies
>> asthma
>> emphysema
>> bronchitis

Gastrointestinal Disorders:

>> nausea
>> indigestion
>> chronic diarrhea
>> constipation
>> gastritis
>> ulcers
