Heating a Needle Its not just for pain any more

Most people think of acupuncture primarily as a treatment for pain, and these contacts represent the main reasons that individuals seek out an acupuncturist. But the fact is that acupuncture, since it serves to work with body’s own innate healing mechanisms, is found to be very effective for a variety of conditions. In fact the World Health Organization recognizes acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine’s ability to treat 43 common disorders, including:

Respiratory Disorders:

such as emphysema, sinusitis, asthma, allergies & bronchitis.

Disorders of the Bones, Muscles, Joints, and Nervous System:

such as arthritis, migraine headaches, neuralgia, insomnia, dizziness and low back, neck and shoulder pain.

Circulatory Disorders:

such as hypertension, angina pectoris, arteriosclerosis and anemia.

Ancient Medicine for Modern Ailments

The persistence and longevity of Oriental Medicine speaks to its effectiveness as a modality of healing. Otherwise it most likely would not have survived the centuries much less the advent of modern western medicine. Much of the recent acceptance of Oriental Medicine speaks to the fact that it “works”. Though its theories may be foreign and strange, the fact remains that patients get results and chronic “untreatable”conditions often improve and resolve.

Gastrointestinal Disorders:

such as food allergies, peptic ulcer, chronic diarrhea, constipation, indigestion, gastrointestinal weakness, anorexia, and gastritis.

Urogenital Disorders:

including stress incontinence, urinary tract infections, and sexual dysfunctions.

Gynecological Disorders:

such as irregular, heavy, or painful menstruation, infertility, and premenstrual syndrome.

Emotional and Psychological Disorders:

including depression, anxiety and addictive disorders (such as alcohol, nicotine, and other drugs.

Eye, Ear, Nose and Throat Disorders:

Such as rhinitis, sinusitis, ear pain and infections, difficulty swallowing, and esophagitis.
