​What Does Acupuncture Treat?

Acupuncture and Herbal medicine are useful in combating almost any ailment. I believe that the body naturally rests in a healthy state, and that any deviation from this state is the result of an imbalance in the body. Acupuncture is a procedure that restores balance, and as such, is useful in remedying a wide range of maladies. The following is a list of common issues people seek out acupuncture to treat. This list is far from exhaustive, so please give me a call if you would like to know if acupuncture may be right for you.

* Tendonitis
* Anxiety
