Acupuncture is an effective therapeutic approach for a large number of diseases and ailments. The World Health Organization (WHO) has published a list of conditions for which acupuncture is recognized as effective.

How Acupuncture Works
Calms and Balances your Neuro-Endocrine Axis
When your nervous system is calm, your hormonal system, immune system, digestive, and circulatory systems all calm down, too. This means more hormonal balance, less inflammation, better circulation and nutrient absorption.
Opens and Regulates Microcirculation
When we use acupuncture to bring more blood flow to the glands and organ tissues that need the most support, they naturally work better. This means key glands and organ tissues like thyroid, liver, adrenals, ovaries, and others are able to function at peak levels.
Promotes Tissue Healing
When you use acupuncture to stimulate your body’s healing process, it gets right to work on repairing and restoring all cells and tissues. Acupuncture harnesses the vast healing intelligence your body contains to help you heal faster.
Helps Your Body Sustain Optimal Function
By targeting precise points in the muscles, acupuncture is able to release chronic muscle tensions and relieve the pain and discomfort associated with that tension. Other points in the muscles can also “wake up” inhibited or weak muscles.
