Acupuncture is a complete, gentle but powerful medical system that can be helpful when other treatments have failed. It is relaxing, and can improve physical and mental/emotional health. It is useful for treating both acute and chronic conditions.
Acupuncture treatments are usually relaxing and many patients fall asleep during their treatment. Acupuncture can be used independently or in conjunction with conventional or other natural treatments and frequently helps other treatments to work better. As the longest, continually-practiced medicine known to civilization, it successfully treats a wide range of conditions. Here are some conditions we see the most often:
ACUPUNCTURE FOR PAIN
Of course, acupuncture is most famous for the treatment of acute and chronic pain, including back pain, sports or motor vehicle injures, muscle tension, headaches, arthritis pain. In most cases, acupuncture helps to cure the problem causing the pain rather than only cover up the symptoms. It may provide relief where other treatments have been unsuccessful. Many professional athletes use acupuncture for performance enhancement and for the prevention and treatment of injuries.
ACUPUNCTURE FOR STRESS REDUCTION AND MENTAL HEALTH
Many people use acupuncture as a regular treatment to help their mind cope with a busy and stressful world. It is a great tool for prevention, to help feel more balanced and less stressed. Acupuncture helps with mental balance, resilience, stress reduction, sleep and mood improvement.
ACUPUNCTURE FOR HORMONAL BALANCE AND FERTILITY
Acupuncture can be very helpful for normalizing reproductive hormones to treat many premenstrual, menstrual and menopausal disorders. In addition, it has proven to be successful for improving fertility.
