What Can Acupuncture be Used to Treat?
Symptoms are distress signals produced by the body/mind/spirit when it is out of balance. 5 Element Acupuncture is unique because it treats the root cause of that imbalance and as the person heals, the symptoms disappear.
Because Chinese medicine is a full system of medicine, it can potentially treat anything. It has been found to be particularly effective in the west for pain problems; back and neck pain, tendonitis, sports injuries, knee injuries, fibromyalgia and headaches - including migraines. Digestive and gynecological illnesses are frequently responsive to acupuncture. Immunity problems, degenerative diseases, chronic fatigue and energy problems in general can be helped in many instances where western medicine has no answers. Stress related, emotional and mental problems respond to 5 Element Acupuncture as it treats at the spirit and mental levels.
Chinese Medicine is at its strongest in preventative medicine where the goal is to bring a person into balance and maintain them there. When a person is in balance, life and its inevitable ups and downs become more workable and there is strength and energy to deal with what comes.
