“Can Acupuncture treat <______>?,”
is a question I hear and answer a lot. Many people are surprised to hear that acupuncture is part of a complete system of medicine with the ability to diagnose and treat almost any malady or disease. It may sound too good to be true, however given over 365 acupuncture points which work with all of the different organ systems including the nervous system, the immune system, and the musculoskeletal system, it’s not that surprising. Fortunately, there is a growing body of research and evidence to support these claims.Read More
