What can acupuncture treat?

Traditional Chinese Medicine can often make sense of illnesses that Western medicine has difficulty treating. In cases where Western medicine may be limited to prescribing medication for symptom management, acupuncture may be able to intervene and encourage the body's self-healing process. The benefits of acupuncture have become widely recognized and integrated with mainstream healthcare. Acupuncture and Oriental medicine is currently the fastest growing medical modality in the United States.
