Most conditions are treatable with acupuncture combined with adequate rest, nourishing food, and exercise. In particular acupuncture has demonstrated remarkable success with the treatment of frustrating chronic conditions. Because the underlying cause of energy imbalance and weakness is addressed multiple symptoms can be helped at the same time. By strengthening and balancing the energy nature brings healing at a deep level rather than attempts to fix symptoms as if there were a better healer than nature. Chinese medicine views the symptoms of illness – physical, mental, or emotional – as warning signs that you are not functioning as an integrated whole.
Acupuncture helps to prevent recurring ailments and to recover more quickly if you become ill. You do not need to be sick to benefit from acupuncture; you can have greater vitality and stamina, more restful sleep, more harmonious relationships and a greater ability to care for your own health.
