What do Acupuncture Treat

Acupuncture is known to treat a whole array of chronic and acute medical conditions that conventional medicine fails to effectively control. In addition to cupping, tuina, acupressure, moxibustion, and electro-acupuncture, various other techniques may also be used for optimal healing. After years of study and discussion, The National Institute of Health (NIH) and the World Health Organization (WHO) have determined that numerous disorders can be treated with acupuncture effectively.

Here at Chang’s Acupuncture & Herbs, we aim to address the core issues and treat the cause instead of providing temporary relief to symptoms. This is achieved by balancing the blood and qi circulation in the body in order to bring the body back to its natural state of harmony and balance. The main contributor to most medical issues in our society nowadays is a mental and physiological imbalance.

As the lack of dietary essentials that were prevailing in previous centuries is not as of a concern as it once was, treatments that focus on detoxifying, replenishing, and harmonizing bodily functions can effectively ameliorate the symptoms of most present-day ailments.

Acupuncture along with the healing modalities of Oriental medicine has relieved many conditions. Some examples are listed below:
