CONDITIONS TREATED BY ACUPUNCTURE
Acupuncture treats a wide range of medical conditions. Most people are aware that acupuncture is highly effective for treating physical pain including back, joint, head and neck pain. What is less known is that acupuncture is also used effectively for many other conditions such as Gastro-Intestinal issues and emotional problems.
