Conditions Acupuncture Treats

Conditions Acupuncture Treats

  Torrey always says we treat everything except acute trauma (emergency medicine) and cancer.  And we do.  Because acupuncture is an energetic medicine, and different aspects of the body are not separated out as in Western medicine, we treat the body as a whole. ( In reality, every part of our bodies are designed to work together intricately and beautifully).  By treating the body holistically, we look at the causes of the conditions and treat on that level.  That’s how we can actually restore the body to wellness and not just mask the symptoms.

So, what conditions does acupuncture treat?  Acupuncture has been endorsed by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the National Institute of Health (NIH)  to treat over 5o conditions.  These include:

  • Addiction
