Conditions that can be treated with acupuncture

Acupuncture is recommended for the treatment of a wide variety of conditions, acute or chronic. An holistic approach ensures the treatment of the underlying causes of the disease along with the current complaints, while enhancing a feeling of wellbeing and improving the general state of health of the individual. In cases of incurable or degenerative diseases acupuncture helps to manage the symptoms and delay the progress of the disease.

Acupuncture helps with pain from multiple causes, reduces stress and anxiety, enhances circulation of the vital energy in the body and strengthens the bodies’ physiological processes. In holistic medicine the body and the emotions are interwoven, therefore an improvement of physical symptoms is accompanied by emotional stability and vice versa.

Here is an indicative list of conditions that acupuncture can help resolve
  • Musculoskeletal pain
  • Post operative pain
  • Osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis
  • Side effects of cancer treatments
  • Sleep disorders & Stress

Below you can find summaries of research publications of the therapeutic potential of acupuncture on various conditions, as summoned by the British Acupuncture Council research group.

Another category of disease where acupuncture is most helpful are conditions that do not fall under a specific medical diagnosis; medical examinations show nothing abnormal, but yet the patient feels unwell. Very often through Chinese Medicine these syndromes can be fully explained and treated successfully.

The prognosis of an acupuncture treatment is determined by several factors, most importantly the depth and the severity of the presenting condition, the health background (strength of the immune system) of the individual, their age and lifestyle (diet, sleep, exercise etc). This will be discussed at the first consultation so you can get an idea of how long your treatment will last.
