How Acupuncture Can Help

Traditional acupuncture aims to treat the whole person rather than specific symptoms in isolation.

Some turn to acupuncture for relief of symptoms such as pain, or for a particular condition. Others use acupuncture when their bodily functions are out of balance but have no obvious diagnosis. Many choose it for relaxation, to enhance feelings of wellbeing, for health maintenance or as a preventative measure.
