Acupuncture is finally gaining the recognition it deserves in Western medicine. Many health conditions can be effectively treated and managed with acupuncture.
Acupuncture has been useful in treating conditions that Western medicine has yet to pinpoint a direct cause. Western medicine relies a great deal on knowing exactly what is causing a disease or condition making it rather difficult to treat conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome, fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome. For some, acupuncture may be the best alternative to conventional medicine. For others, it may work nicely as a complimentary treatment alongside conventional medicine.
Acupuncture is a historic treatment based in Chinese medicine. For over 2500 years acupuncture therapy - during which an acupuncturist will insert thin needles into the body at strategic placements - has been beneficial in reducing pain and promoting overall health and wellness.
