Conditions Treated By Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a very comprehensive system of medicine. It works with your body to produce true healing instead of suppressing symptoms. Acupuncture can be used to treat a variety of different systems. Often we like to say, “anything you would consider taking a pill for, you can use acupuncture for.” Some patients use acupuncture to reduce or eliminate their prescription or over the counter medication usage. From Allergies, to Insomnia, to Headaches and Chronic Pain, acupuncture can help!
