Traditional Chinese acupuncture recognizes that many times aches, pains, and other discomforts are only symptoms of a deeper, underlying health problem. Therefore, a comprehensive diagnosis is compiled which takes into account the individual’s body, mind, and spirit, rather than simply categorizing them into a disease. The basis of acupuncture is to build the body’s own immune system so that disease will not penetrate the body. Prevention is the best medicine. Acupuncture has been found useful in treating the following chronic and acute conditions:
Pain—back and neck pain, headaches, migraines, sciatic pain, pinched nerves, sports injuries, frozen shoulder, slipped disc, arthritis, rheumatism, bursitis, fibromyalgia, tendonitis, muscle strains, etc.
Stress—hypertension, depression, anxiety, insomnia, tiredness, weakness, weak immune function, irritability etc.
Women—PMS, painful and irregular periods, infertility, menopause, post-partum care, morning sickness, urinary problems, etc.
