What to Expect
I am often asked what acupuncture can treat. Here's a list. Call me if your problem isn't on the list.
It can be argued that many of the chronic illnesses (hypertension, heart disease, diabetes, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia) are due to the stressful lives we lead, the processed food we eat , microwaving our food, and our go- go lifestyles.
Unfortunately, most of us feel locked into these lives for one reason or another. Acupuncture deals very effectively with stress. Weekly treatments give you an hour of relaxation - sometimes the only hour that is truly yours all week. Acupuncture has been shown to release endorphins, normalize hormone levels and boost the immune system. I have seen people with severe chronic illness get their lives back in functional terms with frequent treatments initially (i.e. 1-2 per week.) followed by weekly or monthly treatments. What I mean by this is that people still have the chronic illness, but it no longer severely limits the things they can do in their lives. I also think that regular acupuncture treatments can help prevent the development of chronic illness.
