Don't see your condition listed above? Please contact us for a free phone consultation to discuss your diagnosis and whether acupuncture may be appropriate for you.

Acupuncture has been used for over 3,000 years in China to treat a wide spectrum of injuries and illnesses. Acupuncture efficacy has not yet been studied for all conditions. Acupuncture's safety and low cost make it a reasonable option for most conditions even when efficacy has not yet been researched through clinical trials.

Acupuncture can also be performed even when a standard modern medical diagnosis is unknown or has not yet been established. However, a prior diagnosis is preferred to identify conditions which may require additional treatment beyond acupuncture.
