What Can Acupuncture Treat?

Welcome to Moore Acupuncture Center  神

Acupuncture works by activating the body's own healing powers, so it can be beneficial for many health conditions. The World Health Organization (WHO) has documented many symptoms, diseases, and conditions that have been shown in controlled clinical trials to be effectively treated with acupuncture. Below are some common conditions I can treat, but please feel free to call me about your specific health condition.  

We all get stuck emotionally or physically from time to time, perhaps due to our
hectic routines, lifestyle choices, emotional disharmony, illness or even injury. Acupuncture can help by moving our blocked energy & emotionally charged stagnate energy by helping it flow, releasing tension and stress, and aligning & balancing our body-mind-spirit bringing it back into harmony.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, we look at how are emotions are effecting our health and well-being. How you think has an effect on your physical health, as well as mental health. Positive and negative emotions affect body chemistry, which in turn affects internal organs, thus effecting your health. When negative emotions and thoughts accumulate and manifest physically, they can show up as symptoms of emotional imbalance, pain, and inflammation in the body and mind.   Thoughts and emotions are powerful and effect your health.
Good News is.....things that create a flourishing life (meditation, yoga, breathing, and things that make you happy) and positive thinking can be learned! Just like any new skill, it takes practice. Here is link from the New York Times that is interesting about how we think effects our health Link

I have a masters degree in Counseling Psychology and work very closely with therapists and counsleors to help their patient enhance the healing process with acupuncture treatments. Acupuncture is very effective tool for releasing stored, emotionally charged energy, helps to decrease stress and anxiety, relieve insomnia, and emotional disharmony.

accepted Western medical therapies, and the incidence of adverse effects is substantially lower..." NIH 1979 Consensus Report on Acupuncture
