Conditions helped by Chinese Medicine

Chinese Medicine is the oldest medical tradition in the world today.  The World Health Organization (W.H.O.) has acknowledged its contribution to health, and has endorsed its use for several conditions which have been rigorously studied in clinical trials.  In the U.S., the National Institute of Health’s  National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) continues to fund extensive research to advance  the scientific understanding of acupuncture.

A few of the conditions that can be helped by Chinese Medicine are included below.

GENERAL:

  • Women’s issues, including painful periods, menopause, difficulties with fertility, among others. These are managed without requiring uncomfortable examinations.
  • Chronic pain, especially joint and muscle pain, sports injuries, arthritis, as well as headache, TMJ and other discomforts.
  • Fatigue, including chronic fatigue syndrome, or a general feeling of being down.
  • Most conditions that respond to drug treatment: please note that medication side effects (including adverse reactions to chemotherapy and radiation therapy) can often improve with Chinese Medicine. We are happy to work with your physician to determine if acupuncture might be of assistance.
  • Many chronic conditions such as allergies, asthma, essential hypertension and more respond extremely well to acupuncture.
