Conditions Treated by Acupuncture

Acupuncture can treat a wide variety of health conditions, from lowered immunity, to nausea, to musculoskeletal pain, to women's health. The number and frequency of acupuncture treatments varies depending on the specific type of condition, and also how long the condition has existed.

Pain

Musculo-skeletal pain (low back, neck, shoulder, hip, etc.), arthritis, and joint pain usually will respond best to a short series (3-7 visits) of frequent acupuncture treatments, as each treatment builds on the next, helping to reduce inflammation and promote healing circulation in the affected area to reduce pain. 

Women's health

Fertililty, menstrual disorders, and menopause, respond very well to acupuncture. Often treatments will be continued for 3-6 months at regular intervals to balance hormones and regulate reproductive organs. I work frequently with patients undergoing assisted fertility procedures, and am credentialed to treat on site at Reproductive Partners in Redondo Beach, CA. Natural pregnancy care is also available for nausea, heartburn, and pain syndromes.

Support recovery from cancer, trauma, post-surgery

Cancer patients can benefit from improved immunity, reduced nausea and helping the body to effectively eliminate the toxins of chemotherapy as well as reducing the side effects of radiation. Post-surgical recovery is facilitated by reducing inflammation, pain, and swelling. Post-traumatic stress disorder is commonly treated with acupuncture using a specific protocol of auricular acupoints that have proven to be very effective.

Common ailments

Colds, flus, lingering coughs, allergies/sinus problems, headaches, digestive disorders, constipation, stress-related disorders and insomnia can all be helped by acupuncture as well. If you are going to the drugstore regularly to buy over the counter medications for common ailments, or are requiring prescription medications for any of the above ailments, why not try acupuncture or herbal medicine instead? No toxic drug side effects, no masking over the symptoms or making them worse (antacids for example). Acupuncture is safe, effective, and has virtually no side effects. Choose acupuncture as your first line of defense.
