I came across a great article that sums up why I use acupuncture in my practice every day. My favorite part of the article was this statement: "Modern research has confirmed the effectiveness of acupuncture in treating over 122 medical conditions in over 13,000 studies." Finally! Science is catching up with the benefits of acupuncture. Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years and it is becoming a popular therapy due to its stellar safety profile and effectiveness. But how does it work for so many different conditions? Think about it this way: symptoms, diseases and conditions are all just imbalances in the body. Because acupuncture helps restore balance, it can treat nearly any condition. I encourage my patients to try this amazing therapy to help jump start their progress as part of a comprehensive treatment plan. Start feeling better now!
