Acupuncture is gaining increasing recognition as an important addition to health care resources. Since 1979, the World Health Organization has recognized numerous conditions that respond well to acupuncture treatment.

There are a number of other health conditions that can be successfully treated with acupuncture therapy. Please contact the office if you have any questions about the effectiveness of acupuncture treatment for your particular concern.
