Conditions Treated

Far more than a remedy for pain, acupuncture and other modalities of chinese medicine can successfully treat a wide variety of conditions.

The World Health Organization lists more than 40 conditions for which acupuncture is appropriate therapy.

  • Musculoskeletal Conditions
    Back Pain, neck pain, arthritis, muscle cramping, muscle pain/weakness, and sciatica.
  • Digestive Conditions
    IBS, Abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhea, hyperacidity and indigestion.
  • Emotional Conditions
    Insomnia, anxiety, depression, and neurosis.
  • Eye-Ear-Nose-Throat
    Poor/Blurry vision, cataracts, tinnitus, gingivitis and toothache.
  • Gynecological Conditions
    Infertility, premenstrual syndrome and Menopausal symptoms.
  • Neurological Conditions
    Headaches, stroke, neurogenic bladder dysfunction, Parkinson’s disease, postoperative pain.
  • Respiratory Conditions
    Asthma, bronchitis, tonsillitis, common cold, sinusitis, and smoking cessation.
  • Miscellaneous Conditions
    Athletic performance, addiction control, blood pressure regulation, chronic fatigue, boosting immune system, and stress reduction.

This is only a list of proven acupuncture benefits. Studies on Chinese herbal medicine are scarce in comparison because of the impracticality of applying the biomedical research model. Also, acupuncture and Chinese Herbs are commonly used conjunctively. This is especially true in the western model where patients often can only come in for treatment 1-2 times per week, as opposed to the everyday treatment protocols prescribed in China. Utilizing herbs between acupuncture sessions, helps the body to continue internally healing at a deep level, and prevents the recurrence of disease more readily. One only needs to look at the classical literature to see the variety of conditions that have been treated over, literally, thousands of years with Chinese Herbs.

“Naomi fixed a nagging stiff calf muscle in one session! And I’m currently getting treated by her for pain and flexibility after broken ankle surgery. So far so good. I’m generally skeptical by nature, but a new believer in acupuncture.”
