In the long history of China, practitioners of acupuncture and Chinese medicine have treated a great many people. With all this experience, it’s not surprising that acupuncture has been used to effectively treat a large number of conditions. Here are a few things I have good results treating in my practice:

Back, Neck and Shoulder Pain Whether it’s a recent sports injury or a chronic ache, acupuncture is very effective for muscle, tendon and bone pains. I see alot of patients with herniated discs, sciatica or rotator cuff injuries, as well as pinched nerves in the back, neck or face (TMJ).

Stress and Pain due to Stress I have had many patients who want to reduce both the emotional and physical effects of stress in their lives. Headaches, muscle tension and insomnia–these can all be greatly improved with the Chinese massage and acupuncture I practice.

Reproductive Issues From helping to balance the menstrual cycle, to working with infertility and supporting I.V.F, acupuncture has a lot to offer women. Many menopausal woman have benefitted greatly from their treatment; especially for their hot flashes. Gentle acupuncture is also safe for pregnant women.

Colds, Allergies and The Flu Acupuncture can boost the immune system, and many of the herbal medicines I use are powerfully anti-viral and anti-bacterial. I have had great success in treating people with chronic bronchitis. My patients with asthma and allergies have had their symptoms improve dramatically with treatment.

Acupuncture and Chinese medicine are a perfect complement to western medical treatments. Acupuncture helps to ease the side effects, and it works on the root cause of disease.

Scientific research supports the efficacy of acupuncture and Chinese medicine in treating a wide range of conditions. The World Health Organization of the UN commissioned a study of research on acupuncture in 2003. You can read more about the World Health Organization’s findings by clicking here.
