What can Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine treat?

A wide variety of conditions. According to Oriental Medical theory, pathologic conditions are a manifestation of an inner imbalance. Acupuncture helps to balance Qi in the body, relieving symptoms caused by the imbalance.

This is the medicine of the Orient, not just the pain-relief of the Orient. Asian physicians had a different set of tools in their toolbox; and they have found ways to use those tools to address all the types of disorders that manifest in the human body.
