What can acupuncture treat?

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) acupuncture is a complete healthcare system that has stood the test of time. It has been widely used for thousands of years and is still growing in popularity today. It can treat a vast range of health problems, and is commonly used to treat such conditions as:

Headache, migraine, and nervous conditions

Stress-related, mental and emotional

  • depression, anxiety, panic attacks

Acupuncture as a preventive treatment

Many people also choose to have acupuncture as a preventive treatment, or because they feel unwell in themselves but do not yet have an illness that Western medicine would be able to detect.

TCM acupuncture is an holistic therapy

Indeed, after receiving TCM acupuncture treatment, people often say that they feel better within themselves, as well as having their symptoms eased or cleared up completely. This is largely because TCM acupuncture is an holistic form of healing, which aims to remove the underlying causes of your health problem, rather than just suppressing the symptoms.
