CONDITIONS TREATED WITH ACUPUNCTURE


Acupuncture has proven to be successful in reducing stress, muscle tension and chronic pain. If the symptom is a result of an energy blockage within the body, acupuncture can encourage the body's natural healing response.

Acupuncture at our clinic has been extremely effective for:

  • Weight reduction
  • Withdrawal from addictions especially alcohol
  • Stress reduction and anxiety
  • Hair loss

  • Fertility
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Improving immunity (allergies)
