What Does Acupuncture Treat?

Acupuncture can be a very successful, non-traditional treatment for many conditions. When there are health problems that appear to be caused by disruption to energy pathways in your body called meridians, acupuncture is often a great treatment option. The needles used in each sessions help to loosen this blockage or disruption and allow energy to circulate properly.

Acupuncture is also used as a preventative treatment. So rather than just treating specific conditions, it can also be as a natural method to treat the whole patient. Many people will see their acupuncturist 2 to 4 times a year for a balancing treatment — a method that can prevent disease and promote health and energy.
