What Can Acupuncture Treat?
Acupuncture is a safe and effective treatment for many common illnesses. Many people seek acupuncture treatment for alleviating pain and for managing long term chronic physical and psychological illnesses related to stress. Others make it part of their weekly or monthly routine just to relax, rest, and recuperate from their busy and stressful lives.
