The nature of Acupuncture and TCM allows it to treat a wide variety of conditions; however, it is generally used as the treatment of choice for sprains and strains, allergies, poor digestion, menstrual problems, menopause, headaches, neck and back pain, fatigue, stress, and other minor and self-limiting illnesses. Acupuncture can also be used to promote general well-being and as a preventative method to illness. It can increase energy, motivation and uplift spirits by relaxing the mind and body. The World Health Organization (WHO) has issued an official report listing the conditions it feels would benefit from the treatment of acupuncture. I have listed the most common ailments treated by acupuncture. This is not the exhausted list so please do contact the clinic to discuss your ailment in detail and how you can benefit from a course of treatments.
