Acupuncture

The use of acupuncture has been shown to effectively treat many types of conditions. In 2003 the World Health Organization (WHO) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) released a report called “Acupuncture: Review and Analysis of Reports on Controlled Clinical Trials.” Below you will see a list of the conditions mentioned in that report.

The Doctor uses one-time sterile needles and follows the Clean Needle Technique to apply needles. The needles used are hair thin and most are not felt when inserted.
