This ancient medicine is now recognized by the world health organization (1979). Through pulse and tongue diagnosis and asking questions, Chinese Medicine Practitioners use Acupuncture and Chinese medicine to help treat a variety of illness and health complaints. The elderly, the young and even babies could benefit from this ancient treatment that the western countries have embraced. Many health conditions as well as muscular/pain could benefit with acupuncture. Some see their Acupuncturist on a weekly basis to help with deep seated health issues and find this treatment can help them along side their western medicine treatments.
Acupuncture can be used as a preventative medicine. For example if you have tight muscles then regular treatment, plus massage / cupping could relax these muscles and help your muscles to stay more relaxed. Many people see their acupuncturist only 4 – 6 times a year for a “tune up” or “balancing” treatment. This can help by promoting health, energy and vitality. Some see their Acupuncturist once a month for general well being both physically and mentally. Some just want to come in for a distressing treatment and to feel calm and relaxed.
Your acupuncturist will have to look at the onset of your condition and see what your constitutional diagnosis is to determine if Oriental Medicine can help you. Each case is unique and it would be difficult to determine how effective acupuncture will be for you without a full assessment
