CONDITIONS TREATED & RESEARCH ARTICLES

Having existed for thousands of years, acupuncture has been a clinical medicine refined and tested in time. While acupuncture known to be extremely effective at treating pain, it has a long history of treating a wide range of health conditions. The World Health Organization (WHO) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) have identified over 40 conditions that acupuncture successfully treats. 


Research studies are released in professional journals from all over the world describing new uses for acupuncture and how the integrative medicine works on the body. These studies indicate that acupuncture influences the central and peripheral nervous system. Evidence shows acupuncture releases neurotransmitters, endorphins, and serotonin from the brain which makes acupuncture particularly effective in pain control and altering a person's mood.
