In the West, acupuncture has been given notoriety as being effective for pain management. However, it is a powerful tool for a wide variety of conditions due to its power to stimulate the body’s own healing response, and because it is a holistic treatment it has an overall therapeutic effect and treats the whole body.
Acupuncture can be helpful in alleviating the symptoms of virtually any illness or disorder. Here is an abbreviated list of the many conditions for which the World Health Organization considers acupuncture an appropriate treatment.
Colds & flu, asthma, bronchitis, sinus infections, allergies, earaches.
